Legendary rock guitarist Jimi Hendrix who was born in Seattle, Washington Nov 27, 1942. Hendrix is considered one of the greatest and most influential guitarists in rock music history, who was way ahead of his musical years and time. He is most remembered for his psychedelic rendition of the “Star-Spangled Banner” at the Woodstock Festival and for lighting his guitar on fire at the Monterey Festival. His signature song is widely considered to still be “Purple Haze.” We say Happy Birthday Jimi who would be 74 on Sunday.
