The 20 Greatest Uses of Jimi Hendrix Songs in Movies

the 20 greatest uses of jimi hendrix s songs in movies

Jimi Hendrix was often paradoxical as a musician and human being. He was the greatest virtuoso guitarist of the 1960s, but was musically illiterate. His band became the biggest touring act of the late '60s, but he rarely sought promotion or did interviews. He grew up an impoverished Black child of a single mother in Seattle, but grew to dominate the predominantly-White British Blues scene in England. His innovative, psychedelic fashion sense diverged completely from his culture, but his music was more cognizant of African-American influence than almost any rock musician of his era.
