Due sue esibizioni, in particolare, sono entrate nell' immaginario collettivo : il suo esordio al festival di Monterey del , in cui concluse la performance dando fuoco sul palco alla sua chitarra, e la chiusura del festival di Woodstock del , durante la quale diede una originale reinterpretazione dell' inno nazionale statunitense.
Il primo strumento del giovane Hendrix fu una chitarra per destrimani regalata dal padre dopo la morte della madre, mentre lui era mancino.
Nell'ottobre dello stesso anno  il chitarrista interruppe definitivamente il suo percorso scolastico senza conseguire il diploma.
A questo punto Hendrix decise di trasferirsi a New York . Poco prima di partire per New York, verso Natale del , prese parte alla sua prima seduta d'incisione   .
La vera occasione di entrare a contatto con il dorato mondo del mainstream giunse proprio nel marzo  , quando Hendrix venne reclutato come chitarrista della Isley Brothers Band .
In ottobre e novembre  un tour di due mesi con i Joey Dee and The Starliters  . Hendrix e il suo nuovo gruppo richiamarono l'attenzione di una New York ancora troppo distante dai suoni e dagli umori della rivoluzione culturale e musicale che stava per esplodere sulla costa opposta degli States  .
Fondamentale fu poi la conoscenza con Frank Zappa ; leggenda vuole che fu proprio Zappa a istruire Hendrix sulle prospettive offerte da un effetto per chitarra di nuova produzione destinato a diventare famoso: il wah wah .
Il fu l'anno della svolta per Hendrix. La ragazza insistette per presentarlo a Chas Chandler , all'epoca ancora bassista degli Animals.
L'incontro stavolta fu fruttuoso:  Chas assistette a un concerto di Jimi al Cafe Wha? Inoltre si convinse del fatto che poteva diventare un ottimo singolo di lancio la versione di un blues di Billy Roberts, Hey Joe , proposta da Jimi con il piglio aggressivo che quest'ultimo gli aveva illustrato durante la sua folgorante esibizione .
Incominciarono i preparativi per il viaggio oltreoceano   Il passo successivo doveva essere quello di affiancargli dei musicisti adeguati al nuovo sound che aveva in mente: dopo alcune audizioni si decise di strutturare la formazione sul modello del power-trio all'epoca molto in auge, visto anche il successo dei neonati Cream.
Gli strumentisti scelti allo scopo, entrambi del Regno Unito, furono il chitarrista Noel Redding , delegato al basso, e l'estroso batterista Mitch Mitchell.
Era nata la Jimi Hendrix Experience. Il primo brano a essere dato alle stampe su 45 giri , nel dicembre , fu proprio Hey Joe.
La risposta di vendite fu notevole e venne confermata dai due singoli che seguirono, Purple Haze e The Wind Cries Mary : i brani in questione divennero colonne portanti degli incendiari live acts del gruppo, affiancate da riletture fortemente rivitalizzate di classici del blues come Killing Floor di Howlin' Wolf usualmente deputato a brano di apertura dei concerti e Rock Me Baby di B.
Hendrix zag veel goede gitaristen aan het werk, die een grote indruk op hem maakten. Na veertien maanden in het leger in dienst te hebben gezeten werd hij ontslagen vanwege een gebroken enkel na een mislukte parachutesprong.
Charles R. Cross, de schrijver van het boek A Room Full Of Mirrors een biografie over het leven van Jimi Hendrix , beweert echter dat Hendrix zich voordeed als homofiel , en zo hoopte te worden ontslagen uit de luchtlandingsdivisie.
Na het ontslag trok Jimi als begeleidend gitarist door de Verenigde Staten, waar hij met vele soul - en bluesgroepen optrad, waaronder veel bekende namen als B.
Als beroepsmuzikant oefende Hendrix gemiddeld 6 tot 8 uur per dag, een gewoonte die hij tot aan zijn dood vol zou houden.
Het was een groep met een paar vluchtig bij elkaar gezochte muzikanten, maar later bleek het een sterk trio te zijn. Hendrix zong zelf en speelde uiteraard gitaar, en hij werd daarbij ritmisch ondersteund door Noel Redding , basgitaar en gitaar, en Mitch Mitchell op drums.
Noel Redding was van oorsprong helemaal geen bassist, en Mitch Mitchell kwam uit een heel ander hoekje van de muziekindustrie, namelijk de jazz.
Eenmaal gevormd trad de band op in kleine cafeetjes in Engeland. Door Hendrix' flamboyante verschijning, zijn gitaartechniek en extravagante optredens werden ze al snel populairder, maar echte faam bleef uit.
Volgens Keith had hij het nummer dus kennelijk van hem gekregen. Later hebben Jimi Hendrix en Linda Keith ook een korte verhouding gehad.
Nadat hun eerste album Are You Experienced in was uitgebracht, kwam het succes. Hun singles werden veel op de radio gedraaid, en de band werd regelmatig uitgenodigd voor televisieopnames van populaire muziekprogramma's.
Naarmate de tijd verstreek begon de rest van Europa ook steeds meer lucht te krijgen van The Experience. Al snel toerden Hendrix en zijn band door veel Europese landen, waaronder Frankrijk , Duitsland en Noorwegen.
Hoewel Hendrix in Engeland successen boekte en zijn faam zich verspreidde, was hij nog weinig bekend in de VS. Het eerste optreden in de VS op het Monterey International Pop Festival op 18 juni bracht daar verandering in; The Jimi Hendrix Experience sloeg in als een bom en Jimi kreeg de status from rumor to legend.
Op dit optreden stak hij ook zijn gitaar in brand, iets wat hij maar driemaal gedaan heeft. De in brand gestoken gitaar sloeg hij vervolgens stuk op de grond.
Andere gimmicks die hij ook al in Engeland gebruikte waren het spelen met zijn tanden, en met de gitaar op zijn rug. De eerste keer dat hij zijn gitaar in brand stak zou zijn geweest op 31 maart bij een optreden in The Astoria in Londen.
Wegens contractuele verplichtingen moesten er twee platen worden gemaakt in Het eerste album Are You Experienced werd in mei voor het eerst uitgebracht.
Het tweede album Axis: Bold as Love kwam uit eind Randy California, futur membre de Spirit , est guitariste au sein de ce groupe.
Il n'existe aucun enregistrement amateur de ce groupe. Je n'avais jamais entendu parler d'Hendrix. En , il fait la rencontre de Linda Keith, mannequin qui sort alors avec Keith Richard , guitariste des Rolling Stones.
Elle organise sa rencontre avec le bassiste des Animals , Chas Chandler , qui souhaite devenir manager.
Le premier album du groupe, Are You Experienced , sort le 12 mai Pour le meilleur et pour le pire.
Noel Redding ne joue d'ailleurs que sur quelques titres du dernier album de l'Experience [ 27 ]. Si on sortait, Jimi restait dans sa chambre.

Consultado em 5 de junho de Although they began playing low-paying gigs at obscure venues, the band eventually moved to Nashville 's Jefferson Street, which was the traditional heart of the city's black community and home to a thriving rhythm and blues music scene.
In January , feeling he had outgrown the circuit artistically, and frustrated by having to follow the rules of bandleaders, Hendrix decided to venture out on his own.
He moved into the Hotel Theresa in Harlem , where he befriended Lithofayne Pridgon, known as "Faye", who became his girlfriend.
At the recommendation of a former associate of Joe Tex , Ronnie Isley granted Hendrix an audition that led to an offer to become the guitarist with the Isley Brothers ' back-up band, the I.
Specials, which he readily accepted. Released in June, it failed to chart. Issued in August by Rosemart Records and distributed by Atlantic , the track reached number 35 on the Billboard chart.
Hendrix toured with the Isleys during much of , but near the end of October, after growing tired of playing the same set every night, he left the band.
The single failed to chart, but Hendrix and Lee began a friendship that lasted several years; Hendrix later became an ardent supporter of Lee's band, Love.
The video recording of the show marks the earliest known footage of Hendrix performing. Despite his two-year contract with Sue,  Hendrix signed a three-year recording contract with entrepreneur Ed Chalpin on October They failed to see Hendrix's musical potential, and rejected him.
Following Hendrix's arrival in London, Chandler began recruiting members for a band designed to highlight his talents, the Jimi Hendrix Experience.
Mitchell, who had recently been fired from Georgie Fame and the Blue Flames , participated in a rehearsal with Redding and Hendrix where they found common ground in their shared interest in rhythm and blues.
When Chandler phoned Mitchell later that day to offer him the position, he readily accepted. I said, 'Of course', but I had a funny feeling about him.
I mean he did a few of his tricks, like playing with his teeth and behind his back, but it wasn't in an upstaging sense at all, and that was it He walked off, and my life was never the same again".
In mid-October , Chandler arranged an engagement for the Experience as Johnny Hallyday 's supporting act during a brief tour of France.
If it must have a tag, I'd like it to be called, 'Free Feeling'. It's a mixture of rock, freak-out, rave and blues". On March 31, , while the Experience waited to perform at the London Astoria , Hendrix and Chandler discussed ways in which they could increase the band's media exposure.
When Chandler asked journalist Keith Altham for advice, Altham suggested that they needed to do something more dramatic than the stage show of the Who, which involved the smashing of instruments.
Hendrix joked: "Maybe I can smash up an elephant", to which Altham replied: "Well, it's a pity you can't set fire to your guitar".
During the show, Hendrix gave an especially dynamic performance before setting his guitar on fire at the end of a minute set.
Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Pepper 's title track , which was released just three days previous. McCartney described the moment: "The curtains flew back and he came walking forward playing 'Sgt.
It's a pretty major compliment in anyone's book. I put that down as one of the great honors of my career. In , Noe Goldwasser, the founding editor of Guitar World magazine, described Are You Experienced as "the album that shook the world He insisted that the event would be incomplete without Hendrix, whom he called "an absolute ace on the guitar".
McCartney agreed to join the board of organizers on the condition that the Experience perform at the festival in mid-June.
On June 18, ,  introduced by Brian Jones as "the most exciting performer [he had] ever heard", Hendrix opened with a fast arrangement of Howlin' Wolf's song "Killing Floor", wearing what author Keith Shadwick described as "clothes as exotic as any on display elsewhere".
When Jimi Hendrix set his guitar on fire at the Monterey Pop Festival he created one of rock's most perfect moments.
Standing in the front row of that concert was a year-old boy named Ed Caraeff. Caraeff had never seen Hendrix before nor heard his music, but he had a camera with him and there was one shot left in his roll of film.
As Hendrix lit his guitar, Caraeff took a final photo. It would become one of the most famous images in rock and roll.
Caraeff stood on a chair next to the edge of the stage and took four monochrome pictures of Hendrix burning his guitar. Rolling Stone later colorized the image, matching it with other pictures taken at the festival before using the shot for a magazine cover.
Whitaker wrote that "Hendrix's burning of his guitar became an iconic image in rock history and brought him national attention". You sacrifice things you love.
I love my guitar. Pennebaker , and included in the concert documentary Monterey Pop , which helped Hendrix gain popularity with the US public. The Experience outperformed Jefferson Airplane during the first two nights, and replaced them at the top of the bill on the fifth.
The second Experience album, Axis: Bold as Love , opens with the track "EXP", which uses microphonic and harmonic feedback in a new, creative fashion.
The scheduled release date for Axis was almost delayed when Hendrix lost the master tape of side one of the LP, leaving it in the back seat of a London taxi.
Bassist Noel Redding had a tape recording of this mix, which had to be smoothed out with an iron as it had gotten wrinkled. Axis featured psychedelic cover art that depicts Hendrix and the Experience as various avatars of Vishnu , incorporating a painting of them by Roger Law , from a photo-portrait by Karl Ferris.
I'm not that kind of Indian. While author and journalist Richie Unterberger described Axis as the least impressive Experience album, according to author Peter Doggett, the release "heralded a new subtlety in Hendrix's work".
It could have been the start of any potential conflict between him and Chas in the studio. Recording for the Experience's third and final studio album, Electric Ladyland , began as early as December 20, , at Olympic Studios.
It was a party, not a session. During the Electric Ladyland recording sessions, Hendrix began experimenting with other combinations of musicians, including Jefferson Airplane's Jack Casady and Traffic's Steve Winwood , who played bass and organ, respectively, on the minute slow-blues jam, " Voodoo Chile ".
King, Al Kooper , and Elvin Bishop. In January , after an absence of more than six months, Hendrix briefly moved back into his girlfriend Kathy Etchingham's Brook Street apartment, which was next door to what is now the Handel House Museum in the West End of London.
By February , Redding had grown weary of Hendrix's unpredictable work ethic and his creative control over the Experience's music.
On the second it was no show at all. I went to the pub for three hours, came back, and it was still ages before Jimi ambled in. Then we argued On the last day, I just watched it happen for a while, and then went back to my flat.
The last performance of the original Experience lineup took place on June 29, , at Barry Fey's Denver Pop Festival , a three-day event held at Denver 's Mile High Stadium that was marked by police using tear gas to control the audience.
If we'd go out, Jimi would stay in his room. But any bad feelings came from us being three guys who were traveling too hard, getting too tired, and taking too many drugs I liked Hendrix.
I don't like Mitchell. Soon after Redding's departure, Hendrix began lodging at the eight-bedroom Ashokan House, in the hamlet of Boiceville near Woodstock in upstate New York, where he had spent some time vacationing in mid By , Hendrix was the world's highest-paid rock musician.
The band rehearsed for less than two weeks before the performance, and according to Mitchell, they never connected musically. Hendrix decided to move his midnight Sunday slot to Monday morning, closing the show.
For short, it's nothin' but a 'Band of Gypsys'. Hendrix's performance included a rendition of the US national anthem, " The Star-Spangled Banner ", with copious feedback, distortion, and sustain to imitate the sounds made by rockets and bombs.
Three weeks later Hendrix said: "We're all Americans We play it the way the air is in America today. The air is slightly static, see.
Upon leaving the stage, he collapsed from exhaustion. A legal dispute arose in regarding a record contract that Hendrix had entered into the previous year with producer Ed Chalpin.
Hendrix decided that they would record the LP, Band of Gypsys , during two live appearances. Hendrix had been recording with Cox since April and jamming with Miles since September, and the trio wrote and rehearsed material which they performed at a series of four shows over two nights on December 31 and January 1, at the Fillmore East.
They used recordings of these concerts to assemble the LP, which was produced by Hendrix. In this performance, Jimi transcended the medium of rock music, and set an entirely new standard for the potential of electric guitar.
The Band of Gypsys album was the only official live Hendrix LP made commercially available during his lifetime; several tracks from the Woodstock and Monterey shows were released later that year.
He didn't move until it was time for the show. He then began playing "Earth Blues" before telling the audience: "That's what happens when earth fucks with space".
Soon after the abruptly ended Band of Gypsys performance and their subsequent dissolution, Jeffery made arrangements to reunite the original Experience lineup.
During the first half of , Hendrix sporadically worked on material for what would have been his next LP. Forum , performing for 20, people.
At one of them, the second Atlanta International Pop Festival , on July 4, he played to the largest American audience of his career. With round windows, an ambient lighting machine, and a psychedelic mural, Storyk wanted the studio to have a relaxing environment that would encourage Hendrix's creativity.
When the European leg of the Cry of Love tour began, Hendrix was longing for his new studio and creative outlet, and was not eager to fulfill the commitment.
On September 2, , he abandoned a performance in Aarhus after three songs, stating: "I've been dead a long time".
Three days after the performance, Cox, who was suffering from severe paranoia after either taking LSD or being given it unknowingly, quit the tour and went to stay with his parents in Pennsylvania.
His performance was uncharacteristically subdued; he quietly played backing guitar, and refrained from the histrionics that people had come to expect from him.
Hendrix entered a small club in Clarksville, Tennessee, in July , drawn in by live music. People tell me I get foolish, good-natured sometimes.
Anyway, I guess I felt real benevolent that day. I must have been handing out bills to anyone that asked me. I came out of that place with sixteen dollars left.
Shapiro and Glebbeek, however, assert that Hendrix used it in June at the earliest while attending the Monterey Pop Festival.
One of Keith's friends offered Hendrix acid , a street name for LSD, but Hendrix asked for LSD instead, showing what Cross describes as "his naivete and his complete inexperience with psychedelics".
When Hendrix drank to excess or mixed drugs with alcohol, often he became angry and violent. In January , the Experience travelled to Sweden to start a one-week tour of Europe.James Marshall „Jimi“ Hendrix war ein US-amerikanischer Gitarrist, Komponist und Sänger.
