RIP Jimi Hendrix.
He sure shook us up!
RIP, and thanks, Jimi.
I often wondered if he were able to keep his energy up had he not passed,
the candle that burns twice as bright burns half as long
I hope he journey'd well
He’s the reason I took up guitar. RIP Jimi.
Hendrix was taken to St Mary Abbot's Hospital where he was pronounced dead at 12:45 pm by an Australian Dr John Bannister. Incidentally, another Australian doctor was on duty that day - Bob Brown, who would go onto become a Senator for Tasmania in the Australian parliament.
Unfortunately it was on my birthday.
I still remember that day like it was yesterday…
I was 15, in Sweden at a boarding school. Some of the other kids were teasing me
because I was upset...
I was devastated.. RIP Jimi
Over time, I have lost people I love (if you haven't... just wait).
The memories are in a box, in my mind. Can't keep them in the foreground, or I'd never get outta bed. But I let them bubble up whenever, at least a few times a week.
The box is full of family. Including my dogs, of course. But over time, I've noticed that I think about Jimi (and Jerry) in much the same way, albeit without the same intensity.
Doesn't seem feasible that an artist I never knew personally still changes my life in some small way, but there it is. Some people are simply amazing.
Miss you, Jimi. RIP.
Long gone, but not forgotten. I remember being in my dad's car when the news came on the radio. At that age (4) I knew who he was, even then.
Jimi single handedly made me pick up a guitar, and to start with Keith Moon made me start playing drums back at school, but I settled on guitar thanks to the music of Jimi Hendrix.
Gone too soon.
rest in memory
Jimmy the party guy killed Jimmy the musician.
Brilliance, abundant evidence reveals, does not immunize against stupidity.
Yeah, but he was 27. When I think of how stupid I was back then... My son, too. He barely survived. But he did. And now all that seems like a weird dream.
Jimi was by all accounts a nice guy, and intelligent. He'd have figured it out. It's just a shame, is all.
He is the reason.....I love the guitar!
I was driving in my car when Paul Harvey was reporting the news. In that split-second between "Jim" and "-i Hendrix," my brain was auto-filling with "Morrison."
But that would be a few months later.
I think Fender Guitars owes a lot to Hendrix.
In other news, my wife's nephew was born on that very day.
I remember that day like it was "only" fifty-one years ago. I was sitting in Solfege (ear training) class in college when a classmate told me. The class was full of classical music-only students, some of whom had never even heard of Jimi. I was stunned. Since that day, (and actually long before) we've lost many of our musical influences.....most far too young.
I have a gig tonight, and while I don't have any Hendrix songs on the list, I'll be sure to mention this sad occasion to the audience.
I remember my Mom saying I have some bad news for you. I had just come home from school. RIP
My buddies and I sulked together for a few days. It’s still a bit shocking to me.
Where would he have gone musically?
At the time Hendrix died, I was into rock and roll, but I was also working an awful lot, and my daughter had come along in January of that same year, and we along with our little boy were a family, and doing things families do. I can honestly say I don't remember his passing, though I enjoy his music.
Elvis on the other hand, you should have seen the people reacting to his death.
