Jimi Hendrix was an iconic American rock star, who gained recognition as a guitarist, songwriter and singer. His skills on the electric guitar were impeccable and he is considered the greatest electric guitarist of all time. He joined the army in order to avert imprisonment, for riding on stolen vehicles, and that was where his musical journey began. Although his mainstream career lasted only four years yet he is considered to be one of the most acclaimed musicians of the 20th century. Initially he played with local bands in the music industry and after a while he tied up with the ‘The Isley Brothers’. Eventually ‘Chas Chandler’ became his manager, and along with ‘Noel Redding’ and ‘Mitch Mitchell’, they formed the ‘Jimi Hendricks Experience band’. ‘Are you Experienced?’ was their first album, that stood at the second place on the UK stands, making Jimi and the band an instant hit. Thereafter, Jimi performed at major Rock Concerts around the world, predominantly to the black crowds. Jimi was known for ending the show with a bang, and at times by smashing his guitar or burning it. As his career was iconic, his thoughts, sayings and quotations became popular just like his music and songs. Here is a collection of sayings and quotes by this iconic rock star.
