Music Monday and Jimi Hendrix

When Jimi Hendrix headlined Woodstock in 1969, he was the world’s highest-paid performer at the time.  A year later, he died from an accidental drug-related overdose.

No list of great musicians who perished at age 27 would be complete without Hendrix, considered the best electric guitarist of all time.

Here is one of his best known songs, “Purple Haze.”

Jimi Hendrix died Sept. 18, 1970.

  1. Saw him in concert at the Waikiki Shell. A memorable experience. 😛

  2. I read somewhere that Purple Haze isn’t about being stoned, as many believe. It’s supposed to be about how a man feels when he’s around a beautiful woman he’s attracted to. I don’t know if that’s true or not, but it makes an interesting story.

    Great choice, Eden. Love Hendrix.
