    Jimi Hendricks died this day

    at the age of 27.

    Arguably the most influential guitars to ever play the instrument. His playing went beyond the strum and twang and his experimentation open the door for others.

    What we would be hearing from him now, we can only guess.

    And so castles made of sand
    Melt into the sea
    eventually....

    He was one of the few who changed things. What a step beyond the typical fair of the day.

    What's

    even harder to believe is Hendrix would be 65! Older than my Grandfather was when he yelled at me to "turn that $%^&* noise down" He didn't appreciate Purple Haze!

    He was obviously confusing the 2 of us. Understandable :-)

    Your right Rick

    It is unforgivable. Just my poor spelling skills coming to light.

    " Just ask the axis .... he knows everything "

    " Tire tracks up and down your, baby I can see you've had your fun "

    Would'nt have Jimi and Stevie Ray Vaghn been an AMAZING Concert !!!!

    rock guitarist life span

    What is it with rock guitarists and their short lifespan? Last week, Hughie Thomasson from The Outlaws (There goes another love song; Green grass & high tides)and more recently Lynyrd Skynyrd died of a heart attack. Go down the list, whether from drugs, guns, motorcycles, or disease, a lot just don't seem to last long. I can't believe Clapton is still around. BTW, it was great to see Dave Gilmour on VH1 the other day. Like so many rockers, they turn soft with their new compositions but they can still lay it down with the old classics.

    I can't verify it, but

    I was told that in the early days, Hendrix Experience was a tour opening act for... The Monkees. Unlikely pairing. I should research this one, because I am having a time believing it.

    Hendrix in 1968

    Saw them at Red Rocks Amphitheater in summer of sixty-eight. Had to crash the gates with thousands of others because the tickets were sold out. I think someone got shot. 39 years later took in Buddy Guy at the same theater, and realize now why Hendrix smashed the guitar and burned the amp. The sound system they have now will stand the hair up on the back of your neck from 40 rows up. Back then it was almost inaudible.
