Birthdays - Sunday – November 27th - Jimi Hendrix – The guitar legend would have been 69. Jimi was recently named the Greatest Guitarist of All Time in a Rolling Stone Magazine Poll of industry insiders and fellow musicians! Tom Morello of Rage Against The Machine wrote his thoughts on Hendrix and his unbelievable skills: Jimi Hendrix exploded our idea of what rock music could be: He manipulated the guitar, the whammy bar, the studio and the stage. On songs like "Machine Gun" or "Voodoo Chile," his instrument is like a divining rod of the turbulent Sixties – you can hear the riots in the streets and napalm bombs dropping in his "Star-Spangled Banner." His playing was effortless. There's not one minute of his recorded career that feels like he's working hard at it – it feels like it's all flowing through him. The most beautiful song of the Jimi Hendrix canon is "Little Wing." It's just this gorgeous song that, as a guitar player, you can study your whole life and not get down, never get inside it the way that he does. He seamlessly weaves chords and single-note runs together and uses chord voicings that don't appear in any music book. His riffs were a pre-metal funk bulldozer, and his lead lines were an electric LSD trip down to the crossroads, where he pimp-slapped the devil. Noone else has pimp slapped the devil since Jimi ruled the world! Happy Bday Jimi!!!!
