Regarding your mental health, it’s never good to look back in time and wonder what might have been. But the possibility of Jimi Hendrix, Paul McCartney, Miles Davis and Tony Williams recording an LP together […]
Led Zeppelin and Rolling Stones engineer Andy Johns died Sunday (April 7) at the age of 61.
THE CASE: When our musical idols passed away in generations past, they left behind a legacy to remember them by. That wasn’t enough for superstars like Michael Jackson and Amy Winehouse – or perhaps more accurately, their estates – thus spawning posthumous releases featuring outtakes and half-finished material.
March 5 will see the release of the next collection of previously unreleased Jimi Hendrix tracks, People, Hell & Angels. But you can get a preview of the album much sooner than that: seven of […]
Tuesday (November 27) marks 70 years since the birth of Jimi Hendrix, the man who changed electric guitar and rock’n'roll forever. For the past few weeks, CBS Local has discussed the man’s impact with musicians who came after him, his peers, and even one of his main inspirations. Everyone felt his influence, whether it was on their guitar playing, or their singing. Some even found a new direction for their life thanks to Jimi.
Jimi Hendrix recorded a lot more material than what was contained on the studio three LPs released during his lifetime. From 1971′s “The Cry Of Love” to 2010′s “Valleys Of Neptune,” there seems to be a never ending trove of studio sessions that have yet to see commercial release. Happily, for fans, there’s more on the way.
“Hendrix playing wasn’t ugly, but it was more ballsy. A little out-of-tune, but it was full of passion. I think it’s his passion that I love most of all. I’ve got everything that he’s done. ‘Are You Experienced?’ just blew me away.”
“I saw him playing with The Experience at a small club in Munich, about 250 people. He’d just released (his debut single) ‘Hey Joe,’ the album was coming out that month. It was remarkable, the energy that was coming off stage, I’d never seen anyting like it in my life, and I’d seen a lot of people by then.” – Jon Anderson
“When I was ten years old, Jimi Hendrix was a little scary to me. Yet, I knew the songs, like ‘Purple Haze.’ He sort of represented that scary rock and roll. When I started listening to him, I started understanding what he was doing with his guitar, and the kind of playing, the extreme talent that this man had.” — Melissa Etheridge
“After I saw (Hendrix), I had to go to school the next day. It didn’t work for me anymore, I was done with that. I couldn’t go pledge alliegence to the flag and do 40 pushups. I couldn’t take school seriously after what I saw the night before.” – George Thorogood
