Jimi Hendrix had conjured via his own genius a completely unique sound, which became some of the most extraordinary guitar music ever played and he revolutionized how people both listen to and create rock music; of that there is little argument.
His legacy is also somewhat connected with the hazy, psychedelic landscape of the 1960’s and early 1970’s along with the all time classic ‘Purple Haze’, this was the foundation behind the inspiration for this piece.
“Pvt Hendrix plays a musical instrument during his off duty hours, or so he says. This is one of his faults, because his mind apparently cannot function while performing duties and thinking about his guitar.” — Sgt. Louis Hoekstra, in a report recommending Jimi’s discharge from the US Army
