What are you doing here? What do you want?

Is it music? We can play music

But you want more more...

You want something & someone new.

Am I right?

Of course I am. You want ecstasy

Desire & dreams.

Jim Morrison.

Riot Grrrl was basically about female empowerment – 
females doing stuff on their own terms, separate from men,
 making up their own rules and systems and cultures.
 Sure, men were welcome, 
but they had to understand that for once they weren’t going to be automatically given first place.


Eric Clapton, whose own fans called him “god,” 
was notoriously intolerant of any musician who was bastardizing the blues. 
That is, until he saw Hendrix play Howlin’ Wolf’s “Killing Floor” in 1967.
 Hendrix, with his nasty feedback and wailing guitar effects, was the only person who could ever threaten to knock Clapton off his high horse while simultaneously influencing him to completely rethink music. 
Hendrix was one of the most influential and badass guitarists who ever lived.
 Rolling Stone was when they proclaimed him the best guitarist of all time in their 2003 issue

1960′s Peace Movement –  woodstock inspiration

Jimi bucked convention and influenced millions in more ways than just his popularization of the wah-wah pedal. Hendrix was the most unintentional style icon for the early hippie era. 

 Her culture influenced his early sense of style, and he was teased for wearing Native American clothing and carrying around a broom that he pretended was a guitar. 

Several years later, when Hendrix exploded on the music scene as a revered rock god, people began copying his unique sense of style along with his searing guitar riffs. Hendrix had a flamboyant fashion sense, but it was thrown together with a devil-may-care nonchalance.
He paired antique military jackets with velvet pants and western style hats studded with Cherokee brooches. And while he was imitated thousands of times over, the je ne sais quoi he had seeping through his veins, the stuff that legends are made of, could never be duplicated. 

Just like many rock stars before him, women and booze (in that order) managed to get him in the end. In London two months before his 28th birthday, Hendrix asphyxiated on his own vomit, from the red wine that blocked his airways. 

When his star was shining the brightest, Jimi Hendrix’ career in music was cut tragically short, but his legacy will forever remain larger than life.
