    WOW, He passed away when I was a toddler but grew up on his music. My Father listened to his music. Didn’t realize it has been that long.

    He was just a boy when he died.
    Amazing photo, thanks for sharing.

    I LOVE that chair he’s sitting in.
    This photo could be in a room taken today.

    I did a 7th grade report over Jimi Hendrix. Coincidentally, that same 7th grade report was my first experience with drawing typography by hand and loving it. Thank you, Jimi.

    Such a wonderful photo, Anna. I love Jimi.

    If you haven’t seen it, here’s quite an interesting interview with Gered Mankowitz and their famous shoot:

    Just imagine what his work would be like today! So classic in my opinion.

    My husband (who has Jimi tattoed on his arm) went to see Slash on Sat. night, who did a couple of songs in honor of Jimi

    Gorgeous photo, lovely and sad – no one else could have carried off that velvet suit quite as well. Thanks for remembering, and what is that on Jimi’s lap, could it be a book!
