Guitarist, singer, songwriter. Born James Marshall Hendrix, on November 27, 1942, in Seattle, Washington. Often called the greatest guitarist of all time, Hendrix’s legacy grew far beyond the wide popularity he achieved during his short career. He taught himself to play guitar as an adolescent, learning from the albums of bluesmen like Muddy Waters and B.B. King and rock musicians such as Chuck Berry. September 19, 1970, when the 27-year-old Hendrix died in London of drug-related causes (the coroner’s report said he had inhaled his own vomit after taking barbiturates). The authorities pronounced his death an accident; though Scotland Yard reopened the investigation in 1993, no new evidence was found and the matter was dropped.
Linda and Jimi were good friends in the 60's and Paul was an admirer. Jimi covered some Beatles songs like Day Tripper and Sgt. Peppers. It would have been great for Paul and Jimi to play anything together.
