I Dig Jimi Hendrix

A tribute to the greatest guitar pla<x>yer of all time! 549 People

    One Of My Heroes

    James Marshall Hendrix was quite a complicated man; brought up under one name until his father changed his name years into his young life. This, through studies, has shown that it can form an identity crisis within the individual.... A military man but with pacifist ideals; a...

    Missing Jimi

    What this world needs is another Jimi! I wish he would reincarnate so he could revolutionize music once again and also spread the message of love and peace.

    Hmmm

    when you think about it, that guitar squealing and whailing shouldn't sound even remotely like music at all. but it is, in reality, beyond amazing. it rocks and i love it.

    Sixties Blues

    So many are convinced among my peer group that Jimi Hendrix was a rocker but I argue with them. Hendrix played blues, on his electric guitar, during a period of history where there were international abuses.

    Jimi

    Man, he could play.  He taught himself to play left hand by turning the guitar around.  He was magic!  Oh, and Janis Joplin!  I totally loved her by herself or with "Big Brother and the Holding Company".  To know I lived in the "time".  Man, it was real.  The older I get...

    Whatever It Is That Girl Put A Spell On Me

    The year was 1983... Hendrix had been gone for over a decade. Clapton was drowning at the bottom of a bottle and Stevie Ray Vaughn's star was  meteorically set to blast into Stratocaster stratosphere if only for a bright but brilliantly short time. I was a kid, quick...

    Listening to Hendrix's songs still blows me away.  From my introduction to Purple Haze on the local rock station when I was 12 years old (30 years and counting), to getting deep into his archives, he continues to stun me.  One of my favorite memories is still sitting in a...

    Guitar God

    Jimi Hendrix, as far as I'm concerned, is the god of guitars in the world of rock and roll. He could make his guitar do things that no other guitarist could do. It was an Experience to listen to him.

    Electric Ladyland

    This is an essential album! I have some less common albums, and I adore listening to some bands you know are an experience in themselves. I recently got an album by an artist named Emilie Autumn, very dramatic, even gothic! You should listen to Opheliac.

    A Rock God

    I just love the blues fusion and the unbelievably unique interpretation of every cover Jimi ever did. The man packed more genius in his brief 27 years than most people do in a lifetime. I worship the guitar god.
