Biography

Widely considered to be the greatest rock guitarist who ever lived, Jimi Hendrix spent three short years establishing a legacy that spanned decades and earned legions of new fans with every new generation. Though born in America, Hendrix first gained popularity in England, where he was brought by ex-Animals bassist Chas Chandler to form The Jimi Hendrix Experience. After releasing his groundbreaking debut album, Are You Experienced? (1967), which featured hits like "Hey Joe," "Purple Haze" and "Foxy Lady," he returned to the United States where he went from unknown to sensation overnight following his incendiary performance at the famed Monterey Pop Festival. Over the course of the next year and a half, Hendrix became a superstar and one of the periods' most popular figures, thanks in part to relentless touring that featured wild onstage antics like playing with his teeth and behind the back, and occasionally setting his guitar on fire. Though he quickly tired of such gimmicks, fans continually demanded them much to his ever-increasing dismay. Following his second album Axis: Bold As Love (1967), he frustrated his producers and band mates with his unrelenting perfectionism while recording his third and ultimately final completed studio record, Electric Ladyland (1968), which contained one of his most popular songs, a reimagining of Bob Dylan's "All Along the Watchtower." After the Experience officially broke up in 1969, Hendrix embarked on his most creative period, playing some of his most fully realized concerts at the end of the year which were captured on the Band of Gypsys (1970) album, which many considered to be the best playing Hendrix ever delivered. Following a highly-successful spring and summer tour in 1970, he went back to England and never returned. Though his time on Earth was brief, Hendrix remained one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century, counting some of music's most talented players as disciples. With a wealth of recorded material released by his estate over the years, Hendrix was set to retain his influence for decades to come.
