Happy Birthday Jimi
Today is the 64th anniversary of the birth of Jimi Hendrix. Which means that, yes, if he was still alive, he'd be 64 today. (Will you still need him, will you still feed him?)
In honor of his musical genius, I set my Pandora station to "Jimi Hendrix" today and got a nice mix of electric blues and acid psychadelia.
But my personal favorite Jimi will always be "The Wind Cries Mary" from Are You Experienced? One of his sweeter songs, but surprisingly intricate in its level of emotion and complex in its melody.
Happy birthday, Jimi.
