I would submit it had more to do with Jimi himself gradually going down the path into drug dependence. As he did more drugs his music suffered and became more "out there". Jimi was a genius, no doubt, but those other 2 guys were along for the ride. They didnt offer much in the way of songwriting etc. It was almost ENTIRELY Hendrix. Just my take anyway.
