Jazz on the Tube
The Internet's jazz video search engine
Stockholm, Sweden 1969
Astonishingly, Hendrix did not pick up a guitar until he was 15 years old.
That means his life on the guitar from first note to its end was less than 12 years. His career as a top billed soloist lasted less than five years.
Certainly no one who ever played in the rock genre could hold a candle to him.
Hendrix studied Blues avidly and his heroes were B.B. King, Albert King, Buddy Guy, T-Bone Walker, and Muddy Waters.
His favorite musician? Rahsaan Roland Kirk.
Miles Davis and John McLaughlin did studio session with him that have yet to be released.
