Jimi Hendrix is often regarded as one of the worlds most famous Musicians, and best guitarists. Even though he died in 1970 he Is still known and beloved worldwide, and his death still remains a tragedy.

The story of life is quicker than the blink of an eye, the story of love is hello, goodbye. –Jimi Hendrix
