Jimi Hendrix is considered by many to be the greatest rock musician that ever lived. 
Jimi released three studio albums and one live album in three years. His career was cut short by his untimely death in 1970 after he had spent the day with his girlfriend relaxing in between shows.
 Jimi was a great musician and a great entertainer, he learned a lot about showmanship playing in bands in the earlier years of his career. Bands led by great entertainers like Little Richard who humorously once said Jimi was so good he made his big toe jump when he heard Jimi play guitar, and another led by Buddy and Stacy who had a hit with Shotgun.
Jimi also learned that flamboyance isn't necessarily always a good thing when Ike Turner fired him for fooling with his effects pedals on stage during their performance.
Wether Jimi was playing a supporting role or fronting his own band Jimi knew how to dress in styles that at the time were haute couture.
Jimi loved the blues and lived for music and recording great songs and performing them live.
Jimi Hendrix was the highest paid musician to perform at woodstock. Here with Jimi is The Band of Gypsys performing Jimi's classic blues song Red House.
