You would be hard pressed to find anyone who knows anything about music who doesn’t think Jimi Hendrix is one of, if not the best guitarists we’ve ever known. I cannot imagine what it must have been like to see him play live. My dad was lucky enough to see him, among other rock gods of that era, and it just gives me goosebumps to think about standing there taking it all in.photo by exquisitur
We have so many wonderful modern luxuries these days, but sometimes I think I’d trade it all to be able to go back in time and witness the music of the 60s and 70s as it was happening. So much of what is put out these days by the record labels is over-produced, technology-generated garbage. These guys, they had real, raw talent.
And with that, we’ll take it back to August, 1969 when Jimi Hendrix performed one of my absolute all-time favorite songs, Red House, in front of a crowd of what would balloon to over 300,000 at a little festival called Woodstock.
