It was 40 years ago today that Jimi Hendrix died in London from a fatal overdose. And so the world lost the greatest guitarist to have ever lived on Sept. 18, 1970.
This video shows the Jimi Hendrix Experience performing Purple Haze live on what looks like a French TV show in 1967. Alongside Jimi on guitar and vocals is Noel Redding on bass and Mitch Mitchell on drums.
Hendrix is such an iconic figure in the world of music. He has inspired countless other bands and individuals over the decades, and is unlikely to ever lose his crown as the most naturally-gifted guitarist of all time.
It’s just a shame he died so young at the tender age of just 27-years-old. In that time he release three studio albums, all of which are considered classics to this day.
