I'm getting confused here. Why is Neil Young a solo artist but not Hendrix? They both played with full bands.

maybe i wasn't as clear making my point as i should have. english is my second language and sometimes my wording is a bit off. my point is, in rock many great acts are bands, and for example in blues and jazz the most prominent acts have been solo artists.

seeing your point about neil youngs band, maybe you count the likes of bb king and miles davis as bands? as they had big bands behind them, but i don't think you should.
