50 years ago, the music died.
My Hendrix tribute with the Isle of Wight purple strap.
Uli Jon Roth apparently has the Black Beauty locked in a vault somewhere.
Sad sad day
Before he was famous.
Hard to believe that it has been 5 decades since his passing. He has become not only the most influential rock guitarist, but a cultural icon.
That has to be one of the cooler album covers ever!
I always liked that one
Example of when something in cd form doesn’t have the same impact
Pretty much every guitar solo and guitar player since 1967 has been influenced by Hendrix. I don't think you can overstate his importance.
I was and remain a huge fan. RIP.
I was looking up pictures of Jimi this morning and found this one I hadn't seen before (others from this show yes, but not this one):
I remember it pretty well. My best friend and I were (and still are) huge Hendrix fans.
We were seniors in high school. It was a Friday - just like this year - and we heard the news, probably at school.
Back then, rock stars were dying like flies, most of them drug-related.
Nowadays, the surviving rock starts are dying like flies ... but it's usually old age.
Anyway, Jimi's incredible music and technique lives on, a half century after he passed. He was an original and a genius. He's been an inspiration to millions of musicians, including me. I even bought a wah pedal mainly because of him. But I don't sound anything like him.
Hell, nobody did. Or does.
One of a kind. Brilliant.
Yes, very sad day.
So many great songs, so much imagination.. the world has missed him a great deal.
I can only wonder what music might be like today had he lived.
He had such a hard life early on, was the nicest guy and just wanted to be left alone to play music.
There's a lesson for all of us in his story.
Jimi changed the way people listened to, thought of, and played the guitar. Period.
He is timeless. RIP.
Supposedly he didn't like that cover and would have preferred it to have him in a feathered headdress to honor his American Indian heritage.
I was only 13 when he died, but he was definitely the guiding rock guitar light.
My older, more experienced guitar playing friends were devastated.
He definitely rewrote the rule book.
RIP, and thanks, sir.
Yes, I thought about that earlier. It took me awhile to like Jimi. After all, I'd been listening to The Beach Boys, Dave Clark 5, Dylan, and whatever else (Soul & Bubblegum) the AM stations were playing. Jimi's sound was just so...different, I guess. I can listen to him anytime, including right now on Alexa - (Dolly Dagger)...
