Jimi Hendrix Tickets
Details of Jimi Hendrix and the Ticket Luck value
Jimi Hendrix has influenced modern music in countless aspects with his music. He had considerable gifts as a songwriter, singer, and master of a gamut of blues, R&B, and rock styles making his music timeless. Hendrix was capable of playing guitars with his right and left hands. He also was able to play right-handed guitars without restringing.
It was in a New York club that Hendrix was spotted by Animals bassist Chas Chandler in 1966. England at this stage was musically ruled by bands such as The Who, The Beatles and Cream with Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck standing alone as the three leading exponents of the electric guitar.
The first lineup of the Animals was about to split, and Chandler, looking to move into management, convinced Hendrix to move to London and record as a solo act in England. There a group was built around Jimi, also featuring Mitch Mitchell on drums and Noel Redding on bass which was dubbed the Jimi Hendrix Experience. The trio became stars with astonishing speed in the U.K., where Hey Joe, Purple Haze, and The Wind Cries Mary all made the Top Ten in the first half of 1967. These tracks were also featured on their debut album, Are You Experienced?, a psychedelic piece of work that became a huge hit in the U.S. after Hendrix created a sensation at the Monterey Pop Festival in June of 1967 which ended with Hendrix lighting his guitar on fire. Quickly becoming a rock music superstar, Hendrix scored again with his second album, Axis: Bold as Love (1968). His final album as part of the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Electric Ladyland (1968) was released and featured the hit ?All Along the Watchtower,? which was written by Bob Dylan. The band continued to tour until it split up in 1969. That same year, Hendrix performed at another legendary musical event, the Woodstock Festival. His rock rendition of ?The Star-Spangled Banner? amazed the crowds and demonstrated his considerable talents as a musician
Hendrix was also a first-rate songwriter, melding cosmic imagery with some surprisingly pop-savvy hooks and tender sentiments. He was also an excellent blues interpreter and passionate, engaging singer. Visually, the trio decked themselves out in psychedelic costumes and permed afros. The Experience was also one of the first integrated bands. Given the racial turmoil of the times, the sheer idea of having a black front man with two white men was quite a strong political statement.
After the split of the band in 1969, he formed the Band of Gypsies with drummer Buddy Miles and bassist Billy Cox to pursue funkier directions. In early 1970, the Experience re-formed again -- and disbanded again shortly afterward. A few months into 1970, Mitchell -- Hendrix's most valuable musical collaborator -- came back into the fold, replacing Miles in the drum chair, although Cox stayed in place. It was this trio that toured the world during Hendrix's final months.
He was voted the 6th Greatest Rock 'n' Roll Artist of all time by Rolling Stone. He was also voted the greatest guitarist of all time in a 2003 poll by Rolling Stone, a claim few would dispute. He was elected to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (as a member of the Jimi Hendrix Experience) in 1992. In 2005 Hendrix was inducted into the UK Music Hall of Fame for his outstanding contribution to British music and integral part of British music culture.
