    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...

    I really like playing Jimi Hendrix's songs.

    I love his style and I try to imitate it. I go on the street with a drummer I know and we play all the big Jimi hits and everyone gives us lots of money because everyone loves Jimi Hendrix.

    It's Been Said Many Times I'm Sure

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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.

    Jimi Hendrix was a musical genius and he had a style all of his own. I love his music because his style of music and play was like no other. Jimi was all about making his music and he didn't care what anyone else thought about it. You really had to be able to understand where...

    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.
