All Along the Watchtower is a song by Bob dylan, but made famous by The Jimi Hendrix Experience. Hendrix's version of All Allong the Watchtower sounded completely different from dylan's even though it was a cover version. Hendrix's version is considered by many a masterpiece; Bob Dylan himself thought that Hendrix's cover version was better than his original, and in Hendrix's honor, Dylan began to play the song as Hendrix did.
