Jimi Hendrix Music videos
Jimi Hendrix was the greatest guitarist of all, born in 1942, Cherokee native American blood, afro-American. Father's name was Al, mother's name was Lucille. She was 17
when she gave birth to Jimi. His full name is James Marshall Hendrix.
Why is he the greatest according to many? His intense artist ship, his innovation of
the concepts of music making on this instrument. Jimi Hendrix's solos were more like
John Coltrane's incredible saxophone creativity, than a nice interlude between sung
verses and refrains. His performances were much more than just a music concert.
He was like total performer, a 'Gesammtkunstwerk': ballet, singing, sounds, colours,
verbal contact with the audience, impulses on a sheer emotional level.
