Jimi Hendrix: 45 years gone

45 years ago today a talented and very gifted guitarist passed away at the young age of 27. They called him Jimi Hendrix. Through his short career he left behind a legacy that has continued to gather fans and his place as a rock legend has been cemented.

The album that really sold me on Jimi Hendrix was given to me by an art professor when I was spinning tunes at a college radio station, It was his Blues album.

Here is Jimi unplugged....

Might not be my favorite album by the guitarist but it is the one that elevated him among my favorite guitarists, Of course everyone knows Jimi could rock. Here he is with "Purple Haze"..

Here he is with "Dolly Dagger"..

What is your favorite Jimi Hendrix song, album, memory? Feel free to share in the comments. I will be back soon with a new post.

Thanks for the music. Jimi Hendrix was and always will be one of my favourite musicians. Such a tragedy to lose him so early in his career!

The day Hendrix passed, was the day I was in a huge head on car accident. It was the last news on the car's radio before a vehicle hit us at 60mph head on. I was home from school for 8 weeks from injuries.

I've always wondered, what his music might have developed into in later years? Thanks, Mike.
