About Jimi Hendrix

Jimi Hendrix was an American musician, songwriter and singer born in 1942 in Seattle, Washington. He had a net worth of $175 million. He was one of the most prominent electric guitar players ever born, in spite of getting very limited mainstream coverage.

Hendrix had a mixed family tree, which comprised of African American, Cherokee and Irish descendants.  When he was in school, he used to carry a broom to emulate the way in which guitar is played. This caught the attention of others. He was refused a guitar at that stage. In 1957, while cleaning up the garbage from an elderly woman’s home, she located a ukulele. The woman gave him the permission to keep the instrument, which had only one string. He followed Elvis Presley’s songs and started playing single notes.

Hendrix got his first guitar at 5. He was a self trained player as he keenly observed how the other professionals played and picked the style from them. The first tune, which Hendrix learned to play on his guitar, was the music from Peter Gunn. He thereafter formed his own band, named the Velvetones. He soon realised the importance of having an electric guitar as he was barely heard over the loud banging sound of the band.

There have been various controversies and legal matters around Jimi. He was spotted twice riding stolen cars. He had amassed this huge wealth owing to his contribution and innovation in both music and technology. Hendrix was honored with numerous awards. The world unfortunately had to face his untimely demise at an early age of 27 in 1970. But even today, he remains one of the finest musicians ever. We wonder what he would have achieved had he lived longer.
