Jimi Hendrix
 
For those who remember and for those who have heard of him . Today is t he 50th anniversary of the great guitarists death. I feel bloody old.

Feel free to shift to music forum if necessary.

Wrong forum.

Do you think someone shouldve said to Jimi "great guitar.mate, but less is more...know what I mean?" ?

bubbs11 18-09-2020 08:05 AM

Hendrix is dead? :eek:

We went to see his burial place (well 2nd burial place) in Seattle. That was quite moving. 50 years shit where has that time gone.

Why? A little excess is not a bad thing. That notwithstanding, he was actually quite an economical guitarist.

No, he really wasn't.

He could be when he wanted to...but often was prone to excess, I'd say.

I think you can probably split his short career in two, in that respect. Early on, his guitar served the songs. Later, the songs were the platform for his guitar. Certainly less mind-numbingly tedious than Clapton, for me.

Which guitar players float your boat, ME?

Very often and very prone.

I like Hendrix, but so many times I listen to stuff and think "OK Jimi, let's move on now".

I'm not so much of a Hendrix fan really. Short bursts, which is why the earlier singles appeal to me more.

Nostrils 18-09-2020 11:33 PM

I remember watching a documentary about Hendrix and one of the adoring interviewies told how he would waltz over and ask "Hey, would you mind if I take your lady upstairs?"

Er, yeah I would actually Jimmy, and my lady might have something to say about it as well.

Was a good show on BBC 4 about his Woodstock show last night.

The fragile beauty of Little Wing gets me every time. Essentially Jimi was a bluesman, with electric guitar :afro:

Saw him twice in the late sixties in tooting. The second time was on the day Brian Epstein ( his manager) died. I saw the first show; the second was cancelled. Support was the crazy world of Arthur brown. Mad!

He bought my wife (before she was) a drink in a pub in West Croydon.

Brian wasn't Jimi's Manager that was Mike Jeffery. Brian owned the Saville theatre were Jimi played a few times.

Brilliant guitarist influenced so many. Sadly I never saw him. Joe Satriani is now the one to see.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=krTf...=mano1971music

Looking at another thread on the death earlier this year of Phil May, one of the founders of the Pretty Things, I found a live concert they did of their classic album S.F. Sorrow at Abbey Road.

Arthur Brown was the narrator. The guy is 78 and touring next year.

Regarding Jimi, I recall a guy at school lending me Jimi's Are You Experienced album and the Beatles Sgt Pepper. I played them on my granddad's record player (we lived in the same house) one hot sunny afternoon. Played the Beatles first which was amazing and then Jimi. That was just another dimension and blew everything else away that I had heard up to then. Certainly one of the greatest debut albums ever.

3 years later I had just started work and saw the headline on an evening papers board that he was dead.

I agree. Nobody played the guitar like Hendrix, especially at the time. I think he didn't like his voice much, was a bit reluctant to sing.

Sick Bucket 29-10-2020 10:45 PM

I dunno I was trying to post the video of him playing hear my train commin' on a 12 string acoustic but somehow it's Johnny B. Goode. Whatever.

The acoustic stuff is great, that was just him in his flat sitting on his bed with a few friends I think.
