I was devastated by the news of Jimi’s passing that day. Still a huge fan to this day

See you on the other side, Jimi

Wow. I remember that I heard the news as I rode up to my college on my bike and was parking. I overheard two guys talking about it. Was such a big fan in those days and, being 19, thought we were all immortal.

I was in high school and remember that day clearly, as I do the day a little over a year later when I head the news about Duane. My two favorite guitar players gone before I graduated.

I'd was 11 and had only just discovered "Jimi Hendrix Smash Hits."
Can't say my parents were too upset:
"Turn that noise down!"

^^ Yep, I was twelve. I was still listening to my parent's music.

I had a poster on my bedroom wall of Jimi at Monterey Pop playing his white Strat. I found a smaller print of that poster online just now for only $1200!

Pre-dates my existence, but I’ll say that Jimi blew my mind from the moment I first discovered him and to some extent, still does today.

RIP

The whole reason I turned to guitar was because Are You Experienced came out when I was in the 7th grade.

After that if anybody questioned whether Hendrix was the greatest ever we would continue the argument with out back by the trash bin.

In '70 I was a military brat at the time and in London playing football against London Central.

The news came out and they played "All Along the Watchtower" over the PA, as well as the rest of Ladyland as we played our game.

It was surreal. I was in a zone and played my best game. I think I put 2 guys in the hospital that day. I always felt bad about that.

27 seems to be a common age for rockers to check out.

Some of my co-workers are 27, and it's shocking just how young that is.

I know what you mean, Pine - finding yourself on the north side of 60 is just plain weird at times.

I was driving down I-20 in north Louisiana when I heard the news. In the nanosecond between "Jim" and "i Hendrix" I thought I was going to hear "Morrison." But that would be another 9 or 10 months.

I knew of Hendrix and new of his passing. It wouldn’t be until the ‘80s when I bought a copy of Radio One that I really “got” him. Driving South and Killing Floor blew my mind.

1970 was a bad year for rock stars with 1st names beginning with a “J”. I was a junior in high school. I was very much saddened.
