Remembering Jimi Hendrix (b. 1942 – d. 1970)

This post is in memory of Jimi Hendrix who passed on this day 40 years ago.

James MarshallJimiHendrix (born Johnny Allen Hendrix, November 27, 1942– September 18, 1970) was an American guitarist and singer-songwriter. He is often considered to be the greatest electric guitaristin the history of rock music by other musicians and commentators in the industry, and one of the most important and influential musicians of his era across a range of genres.

Jimi Hendrix is one of my musical heroes. I am at a loss for words to adequately express the personal impact that Jimi had(s) on my life.  Unfortunately, Jimi’s life was prematurely ended. There are conspiracy theories abound regarding his untimely death, mostly attributing direct responsibility to his mafioso/MI5-affiliated manager, Mike Jeffrey. Jeffrey was considerably perturbed at the thought of losing managerial control over Jimi, and more importantly, the millions of dollars that would slip through his fat grimy fingers.

James “Tappy” Wright, a roadie for Hendrix, claimed that Jeffery confessed to having murdered Hendrix by plying him with pills and a bottle of wine in order to kill him and claim his life insurance. According to recording engineer Alan Douglas, Jeffrey “hated Hendrix”.  During one discussion, Jeffrey appeared to be wracked with guilt and put forth what Douglas characterized as a “confession”.

One theory put forth is that Jimi was forcefully wine-boarded causing death by asphyxiation. The massive quantities of wine found in his lungs lends creedance to this explanation of Hendrix’s demise. The following link is a chapter from the book The Covert War on Rock authored by Alex Constantine and is the most exhaustive research that I have found on the topic.
