Last night I was at a party talking to an experienced guy. He said that he was awakened one rainy morning by someone tuning a guitar. The person tuning the guitar was Jimi Hendrix; he was getting ready to play the Star Spangled Banner on the last day of the Woodstock Music Festival in 1969.
Jimi died on September 18, 1970, a huge loss for those of us who feel he created some of the most original music in rock history. We will not let his music die.
