When I was away at boarding school, a very long time ago, I used to share a room with one of my best friends, who I am still in touch with today. She loved and introduced me to to Jimi and his posters were all over our room and his music was, pretty much, all she ever played, so I was pretty word perfect in those days. Such a talented guy whose career spanned just four years. He was only 27 when he died.

James Marshall “Jimi” Hendrix (born Johnny Allen Hendrix; November 27, 1942 – September 18, 1970) was an American musician, singer, and songwriter. Although his mainstream career spanned only four years, he is widely regarded as one of the most influential electric guitarists in the history of popular music, and one of the most celebrated musicians of the 20th century. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame describes him as “arguably the greatest instrumentalist in the history of rock music”. WIKIPEDIA
