It will only be a couple of more moths before the 45th anniversary of Jimi Hendrix’s death hits. Hendrix, who invented the usage of the wah-wah pedal and heavy distortion became one of the most iconic rock performers in the history of music. A mesh of songs from “Hey Joe,” “Red House,” and the famous “Star Spangled Banner” can all be heard from his loud playing fender guitar at the 1969 Woodstock festival on Max Yasgur’s dairy farm. Interestingly enough, the 1969 festival was not actually held in Woodstock, NY but in Bethel, NY a town 40 miles from it. Hendrix lost his life on September 18, 1970 from mixing sleeping pills and alcohol, and has been part of the “27 club,” a term used to describe musicians that died at age 27. Other notable musicians that died at that age includes Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison of the Doors, and Kurt Cobain of Nirvana. Enjoy watching Hendrix perform live at Woodstock!
