Jimi Hendrix

Jimi Hendrix was a force of nature and all-time GOAT guitarist, a cultural phenomenon.

During his early career in his native US he performed with many famous acts including the Isley Bros, Wilson Pickett, and Tina Turner but it wasn't until Chas Chandler discovered him and took him to England that he took off. He stormed the 60's Blues Boom scene and started getting hit singles.

His solo career was short, only 4 years and three albums, but he is still widely regarded as the most influential electric guitarist in the history of popular music. In true rock legend style he died at the age of 27 in London under, some would say, controversial circumstances. His estate continues to release previously unreleased tracks and out-takes, worth a listen but as Jimi once said

I've been copied so well they even copied my mistakes!
