Jimi Hendrix Comes A Different Part Of The Musical Spectrum

Saturday, September 18, 2010

Johnny Allen Hendrix; November 27, 1942 - September 18, 1970) was an American guitarist, singer, and songwriter. Widely hailed by music fans and critics alike as one of the greatest electric guitarists of all time, he remains one of the most influential rock guitarists and songwriters in recording history.The pioneering shock rocker is in his prime in these performances taken from two stops on the Billion Dollar Babies Tour in 1973. The over-the-top theatrics and signature props are all in evidence: the makeup, the hatchet, the dolls, whips, and, of course, the guillotine and the snake.

Bonus features include commentary by Alice, poster gallery with original promotional material; biographies, deleted scenes and outtakes; you can ignore the comedy bits by choosing the concert-only option. Jimi Hendrix was also one of the biggest cultural figures of the Sixties, a psychedelic voodoo child who spewed clouds of distortion and pot smoke. Hendrix pioneered the use of the guitar as an electronic sound source. Players before Hendrix had experimented with feedback and distortion, but he turned those effects and others into a controlled, fluid vocabulary every bit as personal as the blues.

In this classic interview on The Dick Cavett Show in 1969, Hendrix explains his theory that someday people will have to rely on music for peace of mind and direction. What about politics? “It’s the art of words, which means nothing,” he said.Hendrix’s wailing guitar riff on The Star-Spangled Banner stood out among the many iconic performances of the Woodstock musical festival’s kickoff in 1969. The greatest guitarist in rock 'n’ roll history turns the national anthem into searing, wordless song of protest.

There was an awesome lesson in that sweeping journey: it was a sweet time and he was a sweet man, as awed by what he had helped create as everyone around him was. In the jeweled, Moroccan journal in which I saw him take constant, feverish notes in that tender, neat calligraphy of his, Jimi had just composed a little poem about Woodstock, which Charles Cross.
