Jimmy Hendrix MoPoP Exhibit
Jimmy Hendrix was the best of the best. Also, another Seattle-based musician! His music is still being played today and is timeless. He was born in 1942, which makes him a Leo! Cool huh?
The Jimmy Hendrix Exhibit at MoPop makes music lovers salivate! Jimi Hendrix’s life was short, but he accomplished more in his 27 years than most people could hope for. He lived a transient lifestyle and never stayed anywhere long-term until the last few months of his life when it became evident that Jimi had an illness from which there would be no recovery. In Wild Blue Angel: Hendrix Abroad 1966 – 1970, we follow him around Europe, where he toured with Cream before playing some deep blues at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club or meeting The Beatles backstage after one of their shows.
Author John McDermott captures the wild blue angel himself as they travel across London during the late 1960s, looking into Jimi’s time abroad touring between 1969 and September 18th, 1971.
