American Masters: Jimi Hendrix

The PBS show American Masters, ran a fantastic documentary the other day: Jimi Hendrix: Hear My Train A Comin’. You can watch the entire thing online or on the PBS app on an iPad or any iOS device.

Even if you think you know all there is to know about the short but amazing life of this rock legend, this documentary will fill in many gaps not to mention, give you a taste of the evolution of his music.

I saw The Jimi Hendrix Experience at the Hollywood Bowl in 1968. In those days I saw a lot of bands perform live in both Los Angeles and up in San Francisco but I have to say, Jimi Hendrix was an original and whether you liked or like his music, there’s no denying he was a genius.
