Jimi Hendrix Once said:

" It's funny the way most people love death. Once you are dead you are made for life. You have to die before they think you are worth anything...".


September 18, 1970, Jimi Hendrix, the most influential guitarist that ever lived, suffocated in his own vomit after an overdose of barbiturates.

Jimi was the single most revolutionary exponent of electric guitar playing in the sixties.

He did things with his guitar that no one imagined possible. He was the first guitarist to make professional use of feed-back and effect-apparatus. Without any electronic gimmickry he produced a whole range of sounds never heard before. He was a creative genius whose bizarre innovations can never be forgotten with such classics as 'Hey Joe', 'The Wind Cries Mary', 'Purple Haze', 'Wild Thing', 'Star Spangled Banner', 'If 6 Were 9' and 'Voodoo Chile'

Jimi Hendrix is a legend whose magic is inimitable even today. He is the greatest guitar hero that ever lived.
