Jimi hendrix has become so revered in today's society that to say you like him has almost become a cliche. But I must confess I still love him just as much as the first day I heard castles made of sand. And after listening to the obscure German release of hush now (with lyrics) for the hundredth time today, I just had to post this.
By the way what's your favourite Jimi Hendrix song?

Cool, it took me awhile to get into redhouse, when I really got into it was when I started watching him play it live in videos.
I love everything he does, but I vacilitate between favorites. Right now Imbin love with hush now, but I think the one truly closest to my heart is castles made of sand.

Every time I hear hey joe I turn into a head banging lunatic, screaming out every lyric.
Two very good cover versions of that song, are done by Roy Buchanan and dead moon. By the way if you haven't heard of dead moon, they are the greatest punk band ever. No joke.

they are all so awesome, but if I had to pick

Acoustic version of "Hear my Train acomin'"
and the live version of "Wild Thing", especially the first part of the song with him talking to the audience, you can just tell how hard hes tripping by the way hes talking lol.

Anything off the band of gypsies album like "who knows"
Anything off the Blues album
Anything off of any of the albums lol.

My fucking hero.

Yea, he continues to inspire me to do my own thing more than anyone else, except maybes McKenna. I wonder if Terrence was a fan.
The band of gypsies played great solid funk. Just the right amount of blues rock and funk.
I read recently that billy cox had his drink spiked with a bunch of acid, and freaked out not leaving his room of eating anything for two weeks.
Yea in some concert footage of his you can just tell he's frying his face off. He definitely waved his freak flag high.

Lol I just remembered a bit off the I believe a live at the filmore auditorium, where he starts talking about eating his woman out, and seeing her other boyfriend walking up to the apartment through the window. Or something like that anyways he just sort of started acid rapping.

I was loaded on free acid from the Vortex Festival in Oregon in a small house in a beach town in Washington with several other hippies when the radio station from Portland told us in the middle of the night that Jimi had left us behind. Mourning on acid.

That's heavy alder, I've read a bit about your life story in other posts and it may be a pain getting old but that's cool you were at that place in time and history when so much happened. You mentioned how heavily your indebted to the hippies, and although I wasnt around at that time theyre legacy influenced me for the better in my life to, and Jimi Hendrix is a part of that. To be happy with who i am and how I express myself, to think for myself, and to stand up for what I believe in.
I see this site as a continuation of those ideals and of that time when for the first time in history people as a whole questioned everything they were taught, and then went seeking for the answers, in the process throwing of the system that oppressed them.
"for we're all bold as love,
Just ask the axis"

God, just remembering that night, September 18, 1970, in that little beach cabin. I can't remember the guy's names. They weren't locals, just down to the beach and fell in with us beach freaks for a bit. Believe it or not, we called these three guys, "the Freak Bros."

Candles for light. KINK, 101.9 gave us the news. We just looked at each other.

Wow a favorite Hendrix song. Damn that's tough. Jimi is my all-time favorite. Machine Gun or anything off band of gypsies. Voodoo child and chile flat out jam. "Rainy day, dream away, just let the sun take a holiday"
Pali gap is bad ass too. Laughing sams dice, The Star Spangled Banner ( Brings tears to my eyes every time) Just so much emotion and grooviness in the banner. Ain't a single song I've ever heard from Jimi that I don't like.

I went to a Experience Hendrix tribute show a couple years ago. Met Billy Cox, actually got to rap with him for several minutes. The show was spectacular and Kenny Wayne Sheppard tore the house down. Also got a autographed Billy Cox " Last Gypsy Standing" CD, and a old photo of Jimi, Billy, and Mitch on stage. Autographed by Billy. Also got my original BOG album autographed.
If you ever get a chance to see "Experience Hendrix" It's well worth the price. Probably 15-20 performers, who all freaking rocked.

Man rapping with billy cox! Cool story I've read a bit about the Hendrix tribute tours in the past, but I just couldn't do it. I want the real thing or someone in a small venue channeling the full power of his almighty guitar!
I've heard people express the opinion that Hendrix wasn't as good later in his career, going down the toilet so to speak, I'm always like have you even listened to band of gypsys? There like yea it's generic funk, and rehashing of chords he used before. I give up on talking to these people after this.
Hendrix forever.
