Jimi Hendrix

Születési dátum: 27. november 1942
Halál dátuma: 18. szeptember 1970

James Marshall „Jimi” Hendrix amerikai gitáros, énekes, zeneszerző. Mind a mai napig valóságos kulturális ikonnak számít. Rajongók és kritikusok egyaránt elismerik kivételes tehetségét, sokak szerint Jimi Hendrix a valaha élt legjobb és legnagyobb hatású rockgitáros. 1967-ben tett szert világhírnévre, amikor zenekarával, a The Jimi Hendrix Experience-szel a montereyi popfesztiválon első amerikai koncertjét adta. 1969. augusztus 18-án az ő fellépésével zárult a woodstocki fesztivál. Tragikus hirtelenséggel, 1970. szeptember 18-án, londoni lakásában hunyt el – 27 éves volt.

Zenélni leginkább egyedül tanult, balkezes létére egy jobbkezes Fender Stratocasteren játszott, amit fordítva húrozott fel, hogy jó legyen neki, de ezen kívül voltak más gitárjai is, fellépett egy fekete Gibson Flying V-vel , valamint egy fehér Gibson SG-vel is. Rockgitárosként igyekezett kihasználni a feedback nyújtotta minden lehetőséget. A zenei stílusok közül leginkább a blues és annak korai mesterei, B. B. King, Albert King, Buddy Guy, T-Bone Walker és Muddy Waters gyakoroltak rá hatást. Sokat tanult az R&B- és soul-gitárosoktól is, mint például Curtis Mayfield vagy Cornell Dupree. Hendrix játéka dzsesszes elemeket is tartalmazott, gyakran Rahsaan Roland Kirköt nevezte meg kedvenc zenészének. Másik fő ihletforrása Little Richard volt, akinek kísérőzenekarában is játszott egy rövid ideig.

Zenéjében megpróbálta közel hozni a „földhöz” az „űrt”: a „föld” egy bluesos, dzsesszes vagy funkos alapritmus, az „űr” pedig az improvizációk során hallható pszichedelikus hangzás . Zenei producerként a stúdiót olyan helyszínnek tekintette, ahol kibontakoztathatja zenei elképzeléseit. Az elsők között volt, aki a sztereó hangzással és a fáziseltolódással kísérletezett. Emellett elismert dalszerző is volt, akinek szerzeményeit számtalan zenész feldolgozta.

1992-ben a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, 2005-ben pedig a UK Music Hall of Fame is tagjai közé választotta Hendrixet. A hollywoodi Hírességek sétányán 1994-ben kapott csillagot. 2006-ban első albumát, az Are You Experiencedet az Amerikai Egyesült Államok Nemzeti Felvételi Jegyzékébe választották. 2003-ban a Rolling Stone című zenei szaklap Minden idők 100 legjobb gitárosának listáján Hendrixet az első helyre választotta.

„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."

„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)
Kontextus: 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)
Kontextus: 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)
Kontextus: 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.

„Is it tomorrow or just the end of time?“

„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.
