Today would have been Jimi Hendrix’ 75th birthday. Happy birthday, Jimi. Wherever, or whatever you are.
A couple of notes about the video. First, I have no idea what the beginning was. Weird. Second, Hendrix playing a Gibson guitar. Thanks, Jim! Third, Mitch Mitchel needed a shave. WTF was up with that, Mitch? Fourth, did you catch how Jimi used his volume knob to clean up his overdrive? Sometimes it’s cool knowing a little bit of technique. Fifth, holy microphone pop screen, batman! It looks like he’s singing into a beach ball! I wonder if it was a windy day. Sixth, this was filmed on July 30, 1970. Jimi passed away on September 18, 1970.
