43 Years Ago.....

We lost the world's best guitarist...IMHO....We miss you Jimi...

"Monika Dannemann, Jimi Hendrix’s girlfriend, snapped the last photographs of the legendary electric guitarist with his favorite instrument, nicknamed “Black Betty.” They were captured the day before his death. This is one of multiple photos published in Dannemann’s book, The Inner World of Jimi Hendrix. The musician looks somber in the image, but others in the rare series show him dreamily wandering with Betty in the garden behind Dannemann’s London apartment"

I wonder what he would be playing, what he would be like now....if he hadn't died then, would he still be alive now?

Oh--and I share your opinion!

That is a very good question....if he was alive would his talent be appreciated today... I am not sure it would...

Your not alone in your opinion of Jimi's talent. Rolling Stone magazine voted him #1 Best Guitarist of All Time.

It's interesting to look at some of the great guitarists of that era who were able to survive their drug addictions (Clapton, Richards, etc.) and are still performing. I'm sure Jimi would still be rockin' along with them if he were still here and would still be appreciated and adored.
