November 27th, 1942 - September 18th, 1970
American guitarist, singer and songwriter
Placing himself somewhere between psychedelic rock and the blues, Jimi Hendrix revolutionized rock and influenced guitar players worldwide.
In a mere four years, Jimi Hendrix, who had learned to play music on a $5 guitar, became a world-conquering musician thanks to an almost out-of-this-world style that all the greatest players envied. Jimi, a left-handed player with a mixed Cherokee and Irish background, began his career doing the first part of Johnny Hallyday's shows before creating his own legendary trio: the Jimi Hendrix Experience. He is still remembered for burning his guitar during the closing show of the 1967 Monterey festival. He died at the age of 27, leaving behind him monumental rock tributes such as Hey Joe, Foxy Lady, and Purple Haze.
