This Day in the History of Early, Unnecessary Deaths
Labels: Rock Music History
Of interest...Jimi was actually alive when the ambulance picked him up, and died en route to hospital....negligence on the part of the paramedics is apparent....as they failed to care for him when he aspirated.
For all of the accomplished musicians that have graced the earth, Jimi opened the door and married technology to virtuosity. technically there were and are players that are more adroit than he on the guitar.....but his marrying of sheer volume, feedback, harmonics, effects, and musical sensibility, will never, ever be matched again.
he was the Christopher Columbus of electric rock guitar.
