Today (November 27) Jimi Hendrix would have been 70.
Hendrix was influenced by U.S. Rock & Roll as well as electric blues, and is regarded as one of the greatest guitar players in history. Jimi wanted to be a guitarist since he was a kid. Jimi's father bought him a guitar for his 15th birthday, replacing the broomstick that Jimi pretended to be his guitar. Hendrix wrote right-handed, but he preferred to play guitar left-handed - much to anger of his dad, who thought that playing guitar with left hand would produce devil's music.
Jimi lived, played, and performed not sparing himself, and never expected to live to a ripe old age. "When I die, just keep playin' the records." was one of his favorite lines.
To mark the 70th birthday of Jimi Hendrix, photoshop him any way you wish.
