Summary

In 1965, after a stint as a session player in New York, guitarist Jimi Hendrix signed with former Animals bassist Chas Chandler and went to England. In 1966, he burst on to the London music scene with the Jimi Hendrix Experience, blowing away the likes of the Beatles, Eric Clapton, and the Rolling Stones. There was simply no one else releasing records with Hendrix's blend of emotion and toughness: a blues sensibility filtered through the latest electronic effects. In 1967, he triumphantly returned to the U.S. for the Monterey Pop Festival and instant superstardom. This collection of images follows Hendrix's career from the earliest London shows and the 1967 tours to the "quiet period" of 1968-69. Hendrix, who died of a drug overdose in 1970 at the age of 27, continues to this day to top Rolling Stone's list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time."
