Mid-Week Watchtower Birthday Song
James Marshall "Jimi" Hendrix would have turned a venerable 77 today, but he died far too young in 1970 of asphyxia brought on by barbiturate intoxication. Even in his short lifespan, Jimi Hendrix's impact on music was monumental. Often referred to as the greatest guitarist of all time (perhaps approached only by Eric Clapton), Hendrix mastery of that instrument -- as well as effects that expanded its range -- propelled him to the top of the charts with his band, The Jimi Hendrix Experience. One of his most recognizable songs is Bob Dylan's "All Along The Watchtower," which features his signature wah wah and fuzz effects. Enjoy.
