His career only spanned 4 years, and 3 albums, but he did more for the music genre than most musicians dream of. He was also a very smart man in general–but his advancements in music through things such as his great use of the wah-wah peddle, and fuzz tone–cemented that fact.
The story of life is quicker than the blink of an eye, the story of love is hello, goodbye. –Jimi Hendrix
When you listen to Jimi Hendrix songs like “All Along The Watchtower”, “Purple Haze”, and “Red House” you can sense the uniqueness, and originality of his music. And I’m sure that too see it in concert was even better, as he was one of the most famous, and highest paid entertainer.
