One of the four apostles of Black Music:
Jimi Hendrix; James Brown; Sly Stone; and George Clinton. Jimi Hendrix played for James Brown before he went out on his own.
Lyrics: I didn't mean to take up all you sweet time, I'd give it right back one of these days.

I didn't mean to take up all you sweet time, I'd give it right back one of these days.

If I don't see you no more in this world, I'll see you in the next and don't be late, don't be late.

An amazingly talented guitarist, with signature songs like Voodoo Child, Little Wing, Purple Haze, Red House, All Along the Watchtower, The Star Spangled Banner...etc. He only got to live for 27 years, but he was then easily remembered as the greatest guitarist in the world. He became the reason people learn to play guitar.
A: Hendrix fuckin' rules!!!!

One of the greatest guitarists of our time and as aptly pointed out by Brittany R. the man who helped free the slaves.
History Channel Voiceover: The year was 1864. The Union trooops had almost defeated the Confederates in their battle to free the slaves. The absolute final turning point was when a black man dressed in phychedelic clothing and somehow having an electric guitar did something amazing.

Jimi:(Singing and playing his wicked licks)Purple haze all in my brain. Living things just don't seem the same. Acting funny but I don't know why. Scuse me while I kiss the sky.

History Channel Dude: Thanks to the amazing rendition of this and other now classic Hendrix tunes, the slaveowners were so distracted in amazement that they didn't bother watching all of their slaves escaping toward the North. Thanks to this, Jimi became known the world over as the man who helped free the slaves and whose clone played the same great music in the 60's. We thank you Jimi. Rock on, dude.

You guys don't know jack about Jimi Hendrix.

Jimi Hendrix is the ultimate musical genious of our world. He is better at guitar dead than anyone on earth today. We should all be put to shame for having spoken his name, for we are unworthy.
Jimi Hendrix is god.

The most famous Psychedelic rock star in the world.

He was known mostly for his wild "trippy" style of playing.
He used techniques of recording such as: playing pre-recorded guitar riffs backwards, using the ever famous Cry-Baby, Octavia, and other various forms of overdrive, simple sounds effects made by the mouth, recorded then slowed down or looped in various ways, and countless others

He was a player of emotion, in which his mood affected the way he played. Songs were mostly about events that happened in his life. He was influenced and was an influence to several musicians of different genres.

Most believe that Hendrix died of an O.D. of barbiturates, true, but it was this and the combination of wine that caused him to vomit, thus suffocating in his own digestive juices. Some say that he was not turned over in his transport to the hospital, thus the above happened.
He died upon arrival.
His effects mastery is present in: Drifting, Room full of Mirrors, I Don't Live Today, Are You Experienced?, Purple Haze, Have You Ever Been ( to Electric Ladyland), and many more...
Jimi Hendrix was plagued with depression, no one had his same goals in the music industry.
Before you disrespect a true legend, consider the fact that backstabbing is what caused more of his stress than anything.
Stress kills, this is a prime example.
Besides, learn how to spell people!
LONG LIVE THE PSYCHEDELICS!
