Lost the one and only Jimi Hendrix 39 years ago today.

Can't think of a player who changed the face of electric guitar playing more than Jimi.

Anyway, back on this date in '98, at Mama Kin's in Boston, the Mule played within their show a 45 minute Hendrix Tribute. I have never heard Allen Woody play like that before or after. He is totally off the charts!

Downloaded mine from Mule Tracks. I highly recommend this show if you've ever contemplated ordering something from Mule Tracks.

RIP Jimi.

RIP Woody.

RIP Jimi and thanks for the music. As with all the other young souls who left us too soon I can only wonder at what might have been - he/they contributed SO MUCH in such short time periods ... it dizzies the mind to imagine. I like to think that Jimi is with Duane and Berry and Janis and all the others who've gone before - making music out there somewhere.

Ever read the Stephen King story "You Know They Got One Hell of a Band?"



Spoiler Below




































Well, in the final scene, Duane and Jimi are both on the stage, tuning/warming up. One veteran concert-goer says to the two newbies, "Well, when they really get cookin', they can play for . . . I don't know . . . a year?"

Yep - love Stephen King. The '...play for a year' line is great. I think I saw this story made into a TV movie or as a segment on some TV show, also - sound familiar to you?

Just curious why you would listen to an imitation rather than the real thing? Not that there is anything wrong with the show. In fact it's pretty damn good, but any Jimi is by far superior to any tribute. IMO anyway.

Jimi, you were and always will be THE man!

Long live Hendrix! He was the one who got me into music, period.

I'll see you in the next world, Jimi, don't be late.

It's a horror story, though, isn't it? I think some people here would look at it differently.

But in the context of the horror story, it is a great line.

Yep, 37 years ago today --
still remember the headline in the paper

am hugely looking forward to 10/18, Hampton Beach Casino (hopefully the tickets are still in place) -- the closest I'll ever get to a Jimi show

Rest in peace, Jimi -- can't say enough about you bro

Well, turns out I didn't feel like digging through binders and binders looking for that Mule show, so I'm jamming to Raw Blues - unedited and unused tracks from the "Blues" project.

If this were ever to be released commercially, the title could be something like, oh, I don't know, "The Best Hendrix Ever to be Heard Anywhere, Period."
