Comment: I WAS A THREE MONTH OLD BABY WHEN HE DIED;GREW UP IN A FAMILY WITH MUSIC ALL AROUND.BUT NONE OF IT WAS JIMI HENDRIX NOBODY EVER TALKED OF HIM.UNTIL I WAS GIVEN A GUITAR AT AGE 7;NOBODY SHOWED ME HOW TO PLAY OR EVER GAVE ME ATTENTION WITH IT AND THERE WAS PEOPLE TO SHOW ME BUT DIDN;T.I GAVE UP UNTIL ONE WINTER NIGHT TRAVELLING HOME IN A CAR WHEN THE RADIO DJ SAID AND NOW FROM THE GREATEST GUITAR PLAYER IN THE HISTORY OF MUSIC JIMI HENDRIX I WAS ONLY 7YRS OLD AND I BELEIVED THIS GUY MORE THAN ANYTHING AND I DONT KNOW WHY THAT WAS I DIDN;T EVEN KNOW HENDRIX WAS DEAD.I BECAME OBSESSED AT THE AGE OF 9.AND I;VE BEEN SAYING HIS NAME. AND TEACHING MYSELF HOW TO PLAY JIMI HENDRIX ON MY GUITAR THAT EVERYONE WHO KNOWS ME WILL KNOW MY HERO.HE IS THE MOST INTERESTING IMAGE AND TOPIC TO MY MIND,THAT HE IS MORE THAN JUST A STORY,HE IS AN EPIC.WHEN I SAW JOE COCKER AND STEVIE RAY VAUGHN IN CONCERT AT THE COPS COLOSEIM IN HAMILTON ONT.JULY OF 1990 THE BIGGEST MOMENT WAS SEEING JOE COCKER LIVE ON STAGE AND THINKING HE PLAYED ON THE SAME STAGE OF JIMI HENDRIX AT WOODSTOCK.THAT WAS GREAT. SOMEDAY I"LL BRING MY KIDS TO HIS GRAVE AND WE"LL SEE OUR HERO TOGETHER. I"VE BEEN PRAISING JIMI HENDRIX FOR 35 YRS NOW AND IT"S JUST LIKE I STARTED YESTERDAY.

Comment: I recall when my lil' bro Steve was teaching himself how to play the guitar in our garage in the late sixties, how I hated that noise. But Steve kept at it until he had his own style with an interesting Hen...drix flair. One day I picked up an album cover and read the linear notes, then I read the lyrics to the songs on the album and was blown away at how spiritual they were. Jimi's lyrics sparked a curiosity in my ever inquisitive mind and gave me a different perspective on my then young life that I've never forgotten and applied to my trials and tribulations. For that I thank you Jimi AND Steve. I remember the day Jimi died like it was yesterday....I was working a split shift at my first job at Pacific Bell and it was raining. I got in my ice blue '66 fastback Mustang and turned the radio up full blast on my favorite Rock Station. I shifted to first then second gear and rocketed down Douty Street in Hanford California. "JIMI HENDRIX DEAD AT TWENTY SEVEN!" The Deejay announced emotion thick in his voice. I hit the brakes and shifted back down to first gear pulled over and stopped the car. I remember the gigantic dark raindrops on the windshield as tears welled up in my eyes and trickled down my cheeks. My first thought, "I wonder if Steve knows yet." Flash Forward To: December 03, 2012 after learning that Steve passed away in his sleep heartbroken and in shock my first thought was, I wonder if Jimi knows yet.

Comment: Yes, I am experienced, Jimi Hendrix experienced. I love to listen to his music. I have only witnessed his play on DVD, never live. Even so the affect on me is profound. Makes me wish I could trade 10 years of life to see him play live, the ultimate Hendrix experience. I hear hints of his influence in today's guitarists thus increases the wish, Jimi Hendrix Live. Oh, but are you experienced? Not necessarily stoned, but beautiful... A Hendrix Legacy fan,

Comment: He was as close to supernatural as a human can be. I had to stop my car and listen to completely free, original, magical music when I first heard "Purple Haze". .After that his music just got more creative and adventurous. Of course he was a virtuoso and probably the most influential musician of the 20th century.Lucky to see him live 3 times. The music is so powerful I can rarely listen to it now.

Comment: The first time that I listened to Jimi Hendrix's music was on 12-11. The song was "The Burning of The Midnight Lamp". Suddenly I identified myself with the song, and since then I sterted to listen all his songs. To me there is a positive message in every song . I know almost all his songs. He will be always in my heart .

Comment: Jimi I will always remember the first time I heard "Purple Haze" on the AM radio (circa 1967). I couldn't get it out of my mind, kick ass music from a legend. You may be gone but, your music will live on for ever.

Comment: Jimi was one of the greatest influences and still is. I never tried to copy him, but i wanted so much to play guitar because of him and his music is timeless. He was a wonderful talent and gifted guy, Shame he went so soon.

Comment: The most influential muscian to walk the earth. Bigger than Brahms, Dylan, Rolling Stones and Michael Jackson. Hendrix, a one word definition of the most soulful, raw expression of music to penetrate the ears. Blues, rock, jazz, classical, but I just call what he played Hendrix. "Not neccessarily stoned but beautiful"

Comment: I was 14yrs old, playing guitar for 5yrs, and grounded, I snuck out of a basement window to go see The Jimi Hendrix Experience with Cat Mother & The All Night News Boys at The Colosseum in Chicago on 3 Dec 1969. Still one of the most inspirational moments in my life. Man, was I in trouble at home! But my dad, who didn't know JH before that, knew who he was, and bumped into him a month or 2 later at an LA hotel. Dad said "my son is a big fan - can I get your autograph?" Jimi shrugged off his minder who was trying to pull him away, and he stopped and signed my dad's notepad addressed to me - Stay Kool, Stay Groovy, Jimi Hendrix. It remains my most precious possession. The legend lives on.

Comment: Im a rock guitarist.My mom introduced to Jimis music when I was 3 or 4,I got to see an old rerun concert of jimi on tv. all I remember was he held a note on the guitar and the speaker cabs toppled over and the amps blew up. There were cables on the ground sparking electricity.The crowd cheered as jimi walked off stage. He came back for an encore,thanked the crowd and TONTO the synthesizer. I wonder if someone has this concert footage?

Comment: Back in the late 60s and early 70s at the height of his fame I remember friends and other's asking me what my musical tastes where, when I said Hendrix they would look at me with a surprised expression and say that they don't listen to white man music? two thought's used to come to my mind: 1 If your such a expert in music then you would know that all main stream music came from the blue's (even Jazz) 2 there is no such thing as white man music because it is a UNIVERSAL tongue understood by all, It transends individuality, race and creed. Which leads me to this: If at that point in time you are fighting for the right to be seen as a equal in this society against racism then why use racist overtones about your own race, even more than that WHY put down a black man who is pushing the doors down by the thousands by exploding the mirth that we as a race are inferior. Two many of his brother's and sister's never even understood where he was coming from and that his music was a tool for him to spread the word of a better place for us all! Black and white AS ONE.The same can be said of the late great Bob Marley who in his fame was known by many Black people as that Jamaican who played white man Reggae. Blatant racism perpetrated by black people back onto there own. Know your History, Recognise your prophets for they are on this earth but for a short time. ( And that is what the Man was all about, Spreading the word of peace love and haromy,) : If I don't see you no more in this world I'll meet you in the next one, Dont be late! Rip RNM aka Bob Marley. Rip JAH aka Jimi Hendrix.

Comment: Many thanks on you website devotion to Mr. Jimi Hendrix. Many of us here wished you could be here on Sept. 18th to memorialize a new park named after the rock hero in Seattle. Randy Hansen, Leon Hendrix will be on-hand playing their Fender Strats and more.. i was lucky to see Jimi twice in 69' and 1970 at Berkely gig. There he played the song, Red House with a green Gibson Flying Vee and the pick-ups were noisy! Reply?
