About Jimi Hendrix
Born John Allen Hendrix, one of the best guitarists ever was later renamed James "Jimi" Hendrix by his own father. He headlined Woodstock, earning $125K for his appearance on the fourth day of that three-day festival. Taken too soon in 1970, he was a self-taught guitarist, never learning to read music. Instead, music appeared to him as colors, with each representing different emotions. That is why so many of his prints are associated with color. He played the guitar upside-down because he was left-handed, and opened for the Monkees seven times before their fans booed him offstage.
