Hendrix Birthday

November 28, 2012 by  

Hendrix Birthday, Happy Birthday, Jimi Hendrix! Today, Jimi Hendrix would have been celebrating his 70th birthday, had a tragic turn of events not resulted in his death on September 18, 1970.

He was an early member of the ’27 Club,’ a sadly-growing group of musicians, who have died tragically young, at the age of 27. Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse also all died at the age of 27. Until the time of his death, Hendrix’s career had been brief; his debut album Are You Experienced? was released in 1967, just three years before he died.

Hendrix may have enjoyed only a brief period of fame before his death, but his powerful legacy has endured. He is known as an innovator of modern rock music, his ground-breaking guitar technique has inspired thousands to pick up a six-string and get practising. His image is up there with The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Bob Marley, The Who, as an icon of pop culture. One of those artists that it’s IMPOSSIBLE not to be a fan of, if you’re a fan of music? Right?
