Yet his music is as fresh today as was when he first emerged on the scene back in the Sixties before he went on to change music forever.
What hasn’t been said already about the man Rolling Stone called The Greatest Guitarist of All Time?
Legend. Immortal. God. Freak. They all apply. Yet like all phenomena that transcend our limited understanding of what is humanly possible, Jimi Hendrix defied description. Words can never fully capture something so profound as music that speaks directly to the soul.
Jimi’s influence on my life and my own music is huge. His groove, his power and his spirit of total freedom and artistic exploration inform every piece of art I’ve ever put out into the world.
Once upon a time about a year ago I did try to put into words, in the spirit of Jimi Hendrix, what I believed were the secrets to his legend and how other creators might learn from Jimi’s example how to find their own personal legend. It became a post on Copyblogger, which got voted to their Best of 2012 list. I was honored. But then Jimi really did all the talking.
I’ve received so much positive feedback since that piece ran that I finally decided to turn it into an eBook and offer it to you for FREE here today as my gift of inspiration in celebration of Jimi’s birthday.
