We lost this great guitarist.......I was only 19 at the time and was crushed at the news:
i got the repro of that exact strap
Sad day indeed !
I was 12 and he wasn't on my radar yet, I was either just before or in the very nascent stages of my music listening career. We were still playing 45s on a plastic portable record player, with an extension cord out the living room window so we could sit in the shade of our tree in the front yard.
Not long afterwards, I would hear this otherworldly music on the frequency modulator device in the electronic workshop in the basement of my friend's father. Neither of us had any idea that we had caught the inaugural broadcast of WBCN Boston' s playing Hendrix until years later when I read about the DJs stealing (ok, borrowing without asking, LOL) car batteries to run the transmitter.
I never quite got Jimmi as a teen, wasnt until later life that I took a liking to his playing style..
Of all the musicians we've lost way too young, I think he's the one I'm most curious to know what music he would have made if he lived on and his style evolved over time.
I guess I'm curious about Cobain too, but I've got a better guess for how his music would have turned out. Hendrix is more of a mystery to me, I could see him going a lot of different ways
I lost my mom on this date 2 years ago.
Sorry for your loss. Far more important.
Jimi was the main driving force for me to want to play electric guitar. I was blown away first hearing his music.
he could only die young... he was rock history the moment he found his voice.
he was trending back to the blues and leaning into jazz. shame, absolutely. but he knew better... dammit.
Buddy Holly is whose greatness was yet to be, wish he had made it to New York and started producing. cant even imagine.
