If I could only listen to one musicians catalog for the rest of my life, I would pick Jimi Hendrix. In my mind, he is the best guitar player that ever lived. Today, November 27th, Jimi would have turned 75 years old, and it makes me wonder....how many masterpieces would he have created? Would music be different today? What music would Jimi be into now?
We lost Jimi far too soon, and I really do feel, his creativity and imagination would've impacted millions and millions of more people. He understood the complexity of making a studio album more than just songs, he made it a journey, a voyage, a place you could go. Not just a song to download on iTunes. I couldn't even imagine seeing him play live. Thankfully, there's tons of LIVE video from some of his greatest performances. LOVE his Monterey video! So if you have some time today, tune out the world, and let Jimi take you away from LIFE for a few mintues, or hours, and listen to the greatest.
Keep Rockin' in Peace Jimi! -Ryan
