Jimi Hendrix

Date de naissance: 27. novembre 1942
Date de décès: 18. septembre 1970

James Marshall Hendrix, né Johnny Allen Hendrix le 27 novembre 1942 à Seattle et mort le 18 septembre 1970 à Londres , plus connu sous le nom de Jimi Hendrix [ˈd͡ʒɪmi ˈhendrɪks], est un guitariste, auteur-compositeur et chanteur américain, fondateur du groupe anglo-américain The Jimi Hendrix Experience, actif de 1966 à 1970. Malgré une carrière internationale longue de seulement quatre ans, il est considéré comme l'un des plus grands joueurs de guitare électrique et l'un des musiciens les plus importants du XXe siècle.

Afro-américain d'ascendance amérindienne, Jimi Hendrix est l'un des artistes les plus novateurs de la musique populaire de son siècle, notamment en raison de son approche révolutionnaire de son instrument et de ses techniques d'enregistrement originales en studio. Hendrix avait la particularité, pour un guitariste gaucher, de jouer le plus souvent sur une guitare de droitier, après avoir remonté ses cordes à la suite de cette inversion. Il lui arrivait néanmoins d'emprunter une guitare à un droitier et de jouer avec les cordes telles quelles. Improvisateur sortant des sentiers battus, il libéra la guitare solid body de ses contraintes en utilisant les ressources nées de l'amplification, notamment en domestiquant l'effet Larsen et en explorant toutes les facettes du maniement de la manette de vibrato ou de la pédale wah-wah.

Son influence dépasse largement le cadre de la musique rock : la plupart des styles musicaux qui se développèrent dans les années 1970 reprirent certains éléments de sa musique ; Miles Davis, notamment, joua ainsi un jazz électrique très marqué par le guitariste,. Son décès, survenant après celui de Brian Jones et précédant ceux de Janis Joplin et Jim Morrison participe au mythe fondateur du Club des 27.

Citations Jimi Hendrix

„When the power of love overcomes love of power the world will know peace.“

—  Jimi Hendrix

This quote has been attributed to Hendrix on the internet, and is flatly denied to have ever been said by him, without presenting any evidence as to why, beyond such unsupported, derisive and denigrative statements such as the author rants about others making in "WHAT HENDRIX NEVER SAID : They Don't Want to Know What He Really Said and Demand a Slacker Fantasy Instead" (22 March 2010) by Michael Fairchild, at rockprophecy.com http://www.rockprophecy.com/hendrix_quotes_hoax.html. Whether or not he ever spoke them, they are very similar to those reportedly of British Prime Minister William Ewart Gladstone, quoted in The Forbes Book of Business Quotations (1997) edited by Edward C. Goodman and Ted Goodman, p. 639: "We look forward to the time when the Power of Love will replace the Love of Power. Then will our world know the blessings of peace." A similar quotation he provides of Sri Chinmoy predates any currently located source of either the Hendrix or Gladstone attributions, yet he accuses Chinmoy of simple plagiarism of Gladstone (or "Gladwell" at one point). From Chinmoy's book My Heart Shall Give A Oneness-Feast (1993) he quotes: "My books, they all have only one message: the heart's Power Of Love must replace the mind's Love Of Power. If I have the Power Of Love, then I shall claim the whole World as my own … World Peace can be achieved when the Power Of Love replaces the Love Of Power." An even earlier statement of Chinmoy is found in Meditations: Food For The Soul (1970): "When the power of love replaces the love of power, man will have a new name: God."

—  Jimi Hendrix

„Purple haze, all in my brain
Lately things just don't seem the same“

—  Jimi Hendrix

Purple Haze
kiss the sky is often misheard by listeners as kiss this guy (see wikipedia mondegreen). Aware of that, in concerts, Jimi sometimes sang "'Scuse me while I kiss THAT guy".
Song lyrics, Are You Experienced? (1967)
Contexte: Purple haze, all in my brain
Lately things just don't seem the same,
Acting funny, but I don't know why,
'Scuse me while I kiss the sky.

„Pretty soon I believe people will have to rely on music to get some kind of peace of mind, or satisfaction, or direction, actually. More so than politics, the big ego scene. You know it's an art of words… Meaning nothing.“

—  Jimi Hendrix

When asked if music has a meaning
Dick Cavett interview (1969)
Contexte: Definitely, and it's getting more spiritual. Pretty soon I believe people will have to rely on music to get some kind of peace of mind, or satisfaction, or direction, actually. More so than politics, the big ego scene. You know it's an art of words... Meaning nothing. Therefore you will have to get an earthier substance, like music or the arts.

„I don't really live on compliments. As a matter of fact, they have a way of distracting me.“

—  Jimi Hendrix

Dick Cavett interview (1969)
Contexte: I don't really live on compliments. As a matter of fact, they have a way of distracting me. I know a whole lot of musicians, artists out there who hears the compliments and thinks "wow, I must have been really great" and so they get fat and satisfied and they get lost and forget about their actual talent and start living in another world.

„There's so many tight-lipped ideas and laws around, and people put themselves in uniforms so tightly, that it's almost impossible to break out of that. Subconsciously, what these people are doing, they're killin' off all these little flashes they have, cutting off the idea of wanting to understand.“

As quoted in "WHAT HENDRIX NEVER SAID : They Don't Want to Know What He Really Said and Demand a Slacker Fantasy Instead" (22 March 2010) by Michael Fairchild, at rockprophecy.com; the author does not provide any sourcing for this statement, beyond his assertion that his authority and expertise should be trusted because: "I was assigned to compile all known quotes of Jimi Hendrix and edit this text into the "autobiography" of Jimi, in his own words. That book has been censored/suppressed by all world publishers for two decades now, but it's where I became familiar with Jimi's unique syntax, vernacular, and habits of thought."

Subconsciously, what these people are doing, they're killin' off all these little flashes they have, cutting off the idea of wanting to understand. They forgot, didn't believe, or just snuffed the feelings or thoughts off to continue with their crazy soul. They don't have the patience to really check out what's happenin' through music, theater and science. It’s like a spaceship. If a spaceship came down and you know nothin’ about it, the first thing you’re going to think about is shooting it. In other words, you get negative in the first place, which is not really the natural way of thinking. It’s like shooting at a flying saucer as it tries to land without giving the occupants a chance to identify themselves.
