Jimi Hendrix

One of the gods of Rock and Roll, Jimi Hendrix was born on November 27, 1942.  Had he lived past his 27th birthday, he’d be celebrating number 69 today!  It’s hard to believe he’s not with us anymore because aside from not being able to tour anymore, for obvious reasons, there’s been a steady output of unreleased music released since his death.  For Jimi fans, you’ll really want to grab a copy of the 4 CD/1 DVD box set “West Coast Seattle Boy,” as it contains 3 discs of outtakes and demos – and it’s GREAT!  Wherever you are Jimi, happy birthday!

What’s your favorite Jimi Hendrix song?  For me, there’s too many to name, but I think I’ll celebrate the day listening to “Foxey Lady,” “Hey Joe,” and the entire “Axis: Bold As Love” album.
