Jimi Hendrix Remembered – part 2

This weekend marks the 40th Anniversary of the passing of rock’s greatest guitar hero, Jimi Hendrix.

In part 1 of Jimi Hendrix Remembered, some of music’s biggest names talked about their own Jimi Hendrix experiences; in part 2, we feature Jimi in his own words.

Notice the difference between Jimi’s offstage vs. onstage persona: he’s quiet, mild mannered and shy when discussing his career, but a ‘wild thing’ with a guitar in his hand on stage.
