The story of life is quicker than the wink of an eye. This quote held truer for no one more than the man who said it. Jimi Hendrix waltzed into the music world and in just four short years, changed the face of rock-n-roll as we knew it.
Hendrix became the trend in 1960s for his ability to perfectly capture everything that made that era great- swagger, grit, primal sexuality and dreamy intoxication. Even though not everyone considers him an ideal role model, Jimi Hendrix is still recognized as the greatest guitarist ever. His talent was a gift. His dedication to the religion of guitar was an inspiration to many. An example of his greatness was his cover of Bob Dylan’s ‘All Along the Watchtower’. On hearing the cover, Dylan himself stated that Hendrix’s cover was better than the original, and started performing the cover instead of his own version.
On his 73rd birthday, we have made an effort to honour the man by bringing to you 25 of our favourite Jimi Hendrix songs (in no particular order).
