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.
That's how we grow.
