This musical documentary captures the elusive character of one of rock's greatest musicians: Rock 'n' Roll Hall-of-Famer Jimi Hendrix. Hendrix, arguably the most influential guitarist in the history of rock 'n' roll, is shown in rare performances, interviews and behind-the-scenes footage including such legendary songs as "Purple Haze," "Little Wing," and "Foxy Lady." Hendrix's all-too-brief career was cut short by a fatal overdose at the age of 27 in 1970. But for three years -- including his blistering (and some said controversial) performance of "The Star Spangled Banner," which closed 1969's Woodstock Festival -- Hendrix amassed a body of work that reshaped rock music. Featuring appearances by music legends Pete Townshend and Eric Clapton.
We were all very impressed and satisfied by the content and character of this doc. Top marks. Really brought back the essence of the man and that musical era. Sensational.
The short musical career of Jimi Hendrix.
This biographical piece documents the Jimi Hendrix years, 3 in all, when he was a superstar. It goes some distance to explain the fall. Well worth purchasing if you're at all interested in this album-rock legend.
Jimi and God
There is no distinction between Hendrix and God.
He is awesome and he created a new form of Blues, openeded the doors for many others, and revolutionized Rock. His music will live...at least for dozens of centuries.
