The Jimi Hendrix Experience

The Jimi Hendrix Experience were an English/American rock band famous for the guitar work, original songs, outrageous style and performance of its eponymous frontman Jimi Hendrix on songs such as “Hey Joe”, “Purple Haze”, “Foxy Lady”, “Fire”, “Little Wing”, “Spanish Castle Magic”, “All Along the Watchtower” and “Voodoo Child (Slight Return)”.

The Jimi Hendrix Experience was formed with Noel Redding on bass and Mitch Mitchell behind the drums and suddenly there was this black guy on the scene doing things with his guitar that were just not possible. Respect from his peers and adoration from the crowds was instantaneous. They toured Europe, breaking attendance records at one club after another, and then signed a recording contract.
