Jimi Hendrix

I learned from NPR today that this is the anniversary of Jimi Hendrix's death in 1970.  Here's my favorite Hendrix song, Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window, a cover of a Bob Dylan song. I don't know what's going on in the video, perhaps someone can explain it to me.  What's your favorite Jimi Hendrix tune?

Um . . .Star Spangled Banner, anyone?

All along the watch tower, star spangled banner, fire yes yes... everyone is aware of those but not being a huge fan of Hendrix, this was one of the best I haven't heard of a million times. This blog is fantastic.

I think this song is off the Hendrix BBC sessions cd, if your looking to pick it up on itunes or something.

BTW, 'Wild Thing' would be my choice.
