Esta colección se la dedico a todos blueseros que aprecian a Hendrix y en especial a mi querido amigo Ivan, un gran conocedor del blues a su temprana edad...que lo puedas disfrutar colega!!




James Marshall «Jimi» Hendrix, músico y cantante estadounidense nacido en Seattle, Estados Unidos. Hendrix es considerado uno de los mejores y más influyentes guitarristas eléctricos de la historia de la música popular, y uno de los músicos más importantes del siglo XX. 

Musicalmente influido por el rock and roll y blues eléctrico americanos, tras tener un éxito inicial en Europa con su banda The Jimi Hendrix Experience, logró fama en los Estados Unidos tras un concierto en 1967 en el Festival Pop de Monterey. Más tarde, encabezó el Woodstock Festival en 1969, y el Isle of Wight Festival de 1970, antes de fallecer a los 27 años. 

Es citado frecuentemente por varios artistas, por diversas revistas especializadas en música, por varios críticos y la prensa en general por la admiración y el cariño de la gente como el más grande guitarrista de la historia del rock and roll, además de ser uno de los mayores innovadores y más influyentes artistas en una gran cantidad de géneros. 

Las continuas presiones para mantener a la banda de gira, en agotadores festivales los llevaron al uso de las drogas. Al principio, las usaban sólo para mantener el tipo en sus innumerables conciertos, consumiendo eventualmente por puro placer. Más tarde se convirtió en una mera adicción. Cansados del excesivo protagonismo de Jimi Hendrix en la banda, Mitchell y Redding decidieron abandonar el grupo en 1969. Hendrix fue incluido en el Rock and Roll Hall of Fame en 1992. 

En el año 2003, la revista Rolling Stone lo eligió como el mejor guitarrista de todos los tiempos y en 2004 lo incluyó en su lista de los mejores artistas de toda la historia (n.º 6). En 2009, la revista estadounidense Time lo situó como el mejor guitarrista de guitarra eléctrica de la historia, por delante de B. B. King, Chuck Berry, Jimmy Page, Keith Richards y Eric Clapton, entre otros. 

Igualmente, en 2003 la revista especializada británica Total Guitar, con el voto de más de 4000 lectores, eligió a Jimi Hendrix como el mejor guitarrista de la historia del rock. Además posee el mejor riff en la historia de la música por su canción «Voodoo Child» según una encuesta realizada en 2009 por la página especializada británica Music Radar, superando a otras bandas de renombre como The Who, Led Zeppelin y Deep Purple, entre otras.
