THE LEGENDARY GUITARIST AND SINGER SONGWRITER JIMI HENDRIX’S BIRTHDAY IS TODAY! He was born on November 27, 1942 to his hometown Seattle, Washington and sadly died at the age of 27 on Sept. 18, 1970 in London. He is a true icon and music legend. Had it not been for Jimi there would be no rock, pop or hip-hop.
He is known as the greatest electric guitarist in the history of rock music!
Know your history:
“Hendrix won many of the most prestigious rock music awards in his lifetime, and has been posthumously awarded plenty more, including being inducted into the US Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1992 and the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2005. An English Heritage blue plaque was created in his name on his former residence at Brook Street, London, in September 1997. A star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame (at 6627 Hollywood Blvd.) was dedicated in 1994. In 2006, his debut US album, Are You Experienced, was inducted into the United States National Recording Registry, and Rolling Stone named Hendrix the top guitarist on its list of the 100 greatest guitarists of all-time in 2003. He was the first person inducted into the Native American Music Hall of Fame.”
