99.1 PLR McDermott Chevrolet & Lexus Artist in Residence: Jimi Hendrix

99.1 PLR McDermott Chevrolet & Lexus Artist in Residence: Jimi Hendrix

Every week during 2022, 99.1 PLR focuses on one of the many great rock artists in history. Listen weekdays at 11am, 1pm, 5pm and 9pm as we play one of their classics, a live cut, or a fan favorite. This week is Jimi Hendrix.

Listen Fridays at 1pm as we play highlighted songs from their album, as voted by you!

The Story:

Jimi Hendrix was a session musician who decided to move to London and try to make it on his own. His early hits in England started landing him on various festivals. His performance at Monterey Pop Festival in 1967 turned him into a star. Yes that’s the show that he set his guitar on fire. In 1968, he released his second album which was a huge hit in the U.S. The next year he topped it with an even bigger album, Electric Ladyland which would include his massive “All Along the Watchtower” cover. He performs at Woodstock, breaks up his band “The Experience”, starts “Band of Gypsys”, breaks up “Band of Gypsys”, and started to work on a new record. That new record would never come to be and he would die of a drug and alcohol related death at 27 years old in the fall of 1970.

Stats:

Studio Albums: 3 

Album Sales: 14.5 million in U.S.

Grammys Won: 0

Fun Facts:

  • Hendrix could not read music. He learned to play by ear and oftentimes used colors to express what he was looking for.
  • Hendrix famously opened for the Monkees but only on 8 of their 29 dates. The fans of the Monkees were very confused on who Jimi was and were never really receptive to his music
  • He lived in the same building that the famous composer George Handel did. Hendrix’s lived in this London flat from 1968-1969 and Handel was 1723-1759.
  • He once owned 6 Corvette Stringrays and was in love with fast cars. The best part is that he never had a drivers license because his eyesight was so bad and he wouldn’t wear glasses.
  • Many conspiracy theories surround his death. The most popular is that his manager murdered him. He thought Jimi was going to fire him so he killed him to collect the life insurance money. His manager would die in 1973 in a plane crash
