Knock yourself out. I mean, I would recommend you check out the bios in the other big list, see how it's done there. It needs to be short and concise, very informative and factual. Album recommendations would be great, but that shouldn't be a problem with Hendrix.

Also it's a cool way to take advantage of the embedding youtube videos.

Okay, here is a sort of rough draft

Jimi Hendrix is the undoubtedly the greatest guitarist of all time. In 1967, Hendrix shook the guitar and entire music scene with the release of his debut album Are You Experienced?. Although not the most technically gifted guitarist, Hendrix's emotion, flare, and presence made him an instant legend. Not only did he have the ability to be original, but he could take sons like "All Along The Watchtower" (a song by Bob Dylan) and make it his own. Every guitarist that played during and after Hendrix's time has been either directly or indirectly influenced by him.
Even though Hendrix died in 1970 at the age of 27, his impact on guitar-playing can never be understated. A certain number one.

Essential Recordings: Purple Haze, Voodoo Child (Slight Return), All Along The Watchtower

I'll try my hand at Steve Hackett, the true greatest Prog-Rock guitarist on earth.

Because of Horizons, Hackett is my favorite acoustic guitarist. Remember Horizon under best material. oh, and don`t forget when he teamed up with Steve Howe and made GNR. Happy writing. :D

He has much better examples of classical guitar playing that Horizons, as much as I love that tune.

Great description. However, I don’t think that saying that he is not the most technical gifted guitarist is accurate. For example his technique with feedback, distortion and other effects is simply the best.

Also, a good list of essential recordings should have at least 10 songs:

Purple Haze
Voodoo Child (Slight Return)
All Along The Watchtower
Little Wing
Manic Depression
Third Stone from the Sun
Foxy Lady
The Wind Cries Mary
Bold as Love
Machine Gun

He isn't the most technically gifted guitarist ever, though.
