Black History Month: Jimi Hendrix

   In honor of Black History Month I'm going to talk about my favorite person ever. Many people would agree that Jimi is the greatest guitarist of all time. Whether you share the same sentiment, or not. It's hard to deny that his influence was greater than any single guitarist. Nearly any rock song you hear from 1970+ was influenced directly, or indirectly by Hendrix. And the fact that he did all this as a black man in the 60's, is an accomplishment in itself.

   Machine Gun is my favorite song. Every time I hear it, my mind is still blown away by the sheer badassery.If you are a fan of music, and you haven't listened to Jimi Hendrix, then what are you waiting for? Kick back and listen to some of the greatest sounds ever recorded.
