Hendrix

„Music is religion to me.” – Jimi Hendrix

27 nov. 1942 – 18 sept. 1970

La comemorarea a 40 de ani de la moartea celui mai mare electric guitarist, Ed Vulliamy ii dedica un amplu articol in The Observer (*).  Iata citeva fragmente:

Paul Gilroy, in his recent book Darker Than Blue, makes the point that Hendrix’s life and music were propelled by two important factors: his being an „ex-paratrooper who gradually became an advocate of peace” and his „transgressions of redundant musical and racial rules”.

Clapton was furiously puffing on a cigarette and telling Chas Chandler: „You never told me he was that fucking good.”

But what was this music, this singular, uplifting, otherworldly, menacing, exotic and erotic sound? „Hendrix was a magpie,” says Altham. „He would take from blues, jazz – only Coltrane could play in that way – and Dylan was the greatest influence. But he’d listen to Mozart, he’d read sci-fi and Asimov and it would all go through his head and come out as Jimi Hendrix. Then there was just the dexterity – he was left-handed, but I remember people throwing him a right-handed guitar and Hendrix picking it up and playing it upside down.”

„Let me try to explain why it sounds like it does: when you listen to Hendrix, you are listening to music in its pure form” – Roger Mayer (acoustician and sonic wave engineer).

 

Hendrix nu implinise inca 28 de ani…
