If you don’t know the influence of Hendrix then you’ve been under a rock for most of your life. Known for the tumultuous mix of flash stardom and a desire to be genuinely heard, the combination brought about one of the greatest rock trio outfits that the world ever saw. Though talked about constantly, his early years are quite the mystery to the world still. One of the earliest memories was a story of Jimi showing up to play with Muddy Waters who only briefly interacted with young Hendrix before disappearing after the set. Described as a quite “boy” who didn’t like to talk about home too much. So today we remember that shy kid who loved to play music and wanted to be truly heard in word and watch his performance of rock god-dom.
Relax and listen well.
