This item includes: Ravi Shankar was set to be the sole artist that afternoon—the crowd initially grooved to his ragas, but after four hours of droning sitar, even the most avid fans of Indian music were sated and not many remained—and the Mamas and the Papas were to close the show that night. The rest of the acts, including the Grateful Dead, the Who, and the Jimi Hendrix Experience, were in a kind of line-up free-for-all.

Jimi Hendrix and Pete Townshend, lead guitarist for the Who, knew each other well from the London music scene. Both were flamboyant, over-the-top performers who left their audiences gasping at their ability and their antics. Each usually finished up his set by smashing his guitar and trashing the stage.

Figuring he would look like an idiot if he were to wreck his equipment after Hendrix had done the same thing, Townshend demanded that the Who play first.

Hendrix was equally adamant that he should not have to follow the Who. Like two strutting roosters, the competitive musicians each insisted that the other should go on last. Things got pretty heated until Philips told them that the toss of a coin would decide the matter. Whoever won would go on first, and that would be that.

Townshend won.

The crowd went crazy. Egged on by the response, Keith Moon began flinging his drumsticks, and then Birth of a Legend mike stands and amps were thrown. It was one heck of an act to have to follow.

As a sort of lull between two musical storms, the Grateful Dead played next, and Jerry Garcia mellowed the crowd with his soft melodies. He was cloaked in psychedelic regalia: a goldbraided military jacket, a yellow ruffled shirt, red velvet pants, a feather boa, and hair in a wild, teased Afro. Hendrix charged through his act with unrestrained joy and unabashed theatricality—his large hands holding his guitar in every imaginable position, toying with feedback, bending the banshee notes pouring from his amps.

So he just went for it He started out as a black American on Friday night By Sunday night he was an Apache warrior, just out to kill. Nobody had ever seen or heard anybody play guitar like that before. That was it. The audience was now his for the taking. King might have played it before blasting through his own version.

He had sworn that he was going to pull out all the stops, and did he ever, playing his guitar between his legs, with his teeth, on his knees, behind his back—all the while going for maximum feedback and frenzy. As the final chords rang through the air, Hendrix grabbed something at the back of the stage, then came forward again.

Out came a can of lighter fluid and matches. After giving a scorching musical performance, he set his Stratocaster ablaze. Grabbing the still-burning instrument, he smashed it, then threw the blackened, splintered pieces into the crowd and walked off the stage. The sacrifice was done. The voodoo had worked. Jimi Hendrix—a poor black kid from Seattle who had grown up playing air guitar with a broom—had come to the Monterey International Pop Festival as basically a musical unknown.

He was leaving it a rock legend. Also like his ancestors, music would be an ingrained part of his being. Johnny Allen Hendrix was born on November 27, , in Seattle, Washington, to parents who were ill-prepared for his arrival into their world.

His mother, Lucille Jeter, was a juniorhigh dropout who was barely 17; his father, Al Hendrix, was a fitfully employed unskilled laborer. About all they had in common was their mutual love of dancing and music. While performing in one troupe, she met her husband, Bertran Philander Ross Hendrix, who was working as a stagehand with the company.

In , their troupe hit Seattle, where it went broke and disbanded. Stranded, and having had enough of the gypsy way of life anyway, the Hendrixes decided to settle in the Pacific Northwest.

The couple heard that work could be found across the gray waters of Puget Sound in Vancouver, and so they moved to Canada. Ross got a job working as a steward at a Vancouver golf club. Nora and Ross Hendrix had four children between and His father died when Al was just 15, and the family was forced to go on welfare. Al soon dropped out of high school, hoping to make it in show business as a dancer.

But it was the height of the Great Depression, and jobs and money were scarce—especially for blacks. Still, Al kept his spirits up by entering dance contests, which he often won with his complicated, acrobatic moves.


Then, around , a friend told him about a chance to box for money down in Seattle. The boxing opportunity turned out to be a sham, and Al returned to Vancouver. But finding a steady job there proved elusive. The rain-shrouded city had graduated from logging—its original source of wealth—to steel, shipbuilding, and aircraft manufacturing. It was back-breaking work, but at the end of the day he would put on his brown pinstriped zoot suit and hit the nightclubs, where he came alive on the dance floor.

He was working at the foundry when he met Lucille Jeter. The house happened to be the boardinghouse where Al lived. When Lucille mentioned where she was headed, Al suggested they go together.

The schoolgirl and the laborer made an odd-looking pair, but that night they discovered they were magical on the dance floor. Al Hendrix had found the partner of his dreams. They started dating regularly, although her parents did not take the relationship too seriously because their daughter was so young. Lucille had just turned 16; Al was On December 7, , Japanese forces carried out a devastating surprise attack on the U. As frequently happens during wartime, many relationships moved faster than they normally would have.

Fearing that he would soon be drafted into the army, Al sped up his courtship. His fears were realized when he received his draft notice early in Around the same time, Lucille found that she was pregnant.

They wanted more for their beautiful young daughter than a shotgun marriage to a man she barely knew. But Al prevailed, and on March 31, , they got married.

Three days later, Al reported for duty. He and Lucille never even had the chance to live together. Lucille, meanwhile, had dropped out of school and was living at home with her disapproving parents. It was a world that she would gravitate to for the rest of her short life.

She named him Johnny Allen Hendrix. Her family nicknamed him Buster. Al Hendrix, who was stationed in Alabama, had requested a furlough for the birth of his child, which was permitted under army regulations. Not only was he refused—being told that Seattle was too far to travel there and back in the few days allotted—he was immediately thrown into the stockade for a month and a half.

Other than a few photos, he would not see his son until the end of the war.

All Along The Watchtower sheet music for drums

Meanwhile, Lucille was having a hard time with young motherhood and often left her infant son in the care of her mother, her sister, or friends. She was recklessly determined to pursue the more interesting pleasures that life had to offer a teenage girl—especially nightclubs and dance halls.

I remember [my mother] going on at Mrs. Jeter because she and Lucille lived clear across town Jeter had just brought him in a little blanket. He had wet so much and it was so cold that the diaper had frozen, and Jeter had no diapers or bottle. She finally did—a month or two later. She hooked up with an unsavory man named John Page or John Williams, according to some sources , who hauled her—and sometimes her baby—from one seedy hotel and rooming house to another.

Little Johnny Allen was forced into the gypsy way of life from the get-go, shunted from his mother, to a relative, to a friend, and back in a never-ending cycle. In , as the war was winding down, Al Hendrix received a letter telling him that his now three-year-old son had been left in the care of a Mrs.

Clarice had met her while attending a church convention there. But when Al was finally discharged and retrieved his son and brought him home to Seattle, he dropped the divorce suit and reconciled with Lucille. Johnny was now Jimmy. On his maternal side, his grandfather, Preston Jeter, was the son of a former slave and her slave master.

Born in in Richmond, Virginia, Preston worked in the coal mines around Charleston until he witnessed a lynching and fled north to Boston. There, a white doctor befriended him and even put him through college. His education did not help him find a job, however, and Preston decided to strike out for the Northwest, where life was supposedly better for blacks.

That turned out not to be the case, but there he met and married Clarice Lawson. Originally from Little Rock, Arkansas, her ancestral tree included black slaves and Cherokees. Preston worked in the coal mines, and Clarice cleaned houses. Life was tough for a black family with so many children and few decent job opportunities, and the children occasionally had to be sent to foster homes.

His great-greatgrandparents were a full-blooded Native American woman and an Irishman. Back in the s the Cherokee had what white pioneers wanted: land. They were forced off their ancestral homeland by a fraudulent treaty that handed over 7 million acres to the state of Georgia. Some 17, Cherokee were forcibly removed by U.

Nearly a third of the people died along the way of cold, starvation, disease, and just plain exhaustion. About 1, Cherokee fled into the mountains, however. One of them was a Cherokee princess who married an Irishman named Moore. Their son, Robert, married a black woman named Fanny. She boldly named him after his father, though it did Ross, as he was called, no good.

He left home and headed to Chicago, where he was employed as a constable. After a while he hit the road again and joined a vaudeville troupe as a stagehand—there met and married Nora Moore.

Al and Lucille, though, began drinking heavily, and after a while, Delores—tired of baby-sitting while they went out and partied every night—threw them out. Al struggled to make a living, and Lucille struggled to accept the burdens of family life.

A steady pattern emerged: They would fight, separate, and reconcile; fight, separate, and reconcile.

In January , Lucille gave birth to a second son, Leon. But it seemed impossible for her to give up her old wandering ways. Although she was a loving mother when she was around, she often abandoned her sons and left their care to her husband, who was working days at menial jobs while he studied to be an electrician under the G. Al named him Joseph Allan Hendrix, although he would later deny paternity. Then in Lucille gave birth to a daughter, Cathy, born four months premature and blind, and, in , another daughter, Pamela, also was born with health problems.

Finally, with rancor having built a wall between them, Lucille and Al officially divorced on December 17, He would never see his mother again. Although Al had been awarded custody of his sons in the divorce, the de facto parenting was left to others. Jimmy was cared for by a succession of relatives and family friends, moving through a series of houses, apartments, and rented rooms and bouncing from school to school. For a while he lived with his aunt Pat and his grandmother Nora in Vancouver.

I used to go back [to Seattle] and take these clothes to school and wear them and all that, and you know, people would laugh. His own out-all-night drinking and gambling habits certainly did not sustain any kind of constancy for his boys, who often relied on the kindness of relatives and neighbors to feed and house them.

Al often took Jimmy to the homes of various friends and relatives who would care for him until Al was able to take him back. Sometimes father and son could only be together on weekends, when Al would occasionally take Jimmy and Leon to the movies.

Not surprisingly, all the disorder and insecurity in his life sent Jimmy retreating inward. A shy, imaginative kid, he wrote stories and drew pictures, constructing a vivid universe of planets and stars. One of the few school subjects to hold his interest was art. But [Jimmy] kept right on singing the notes and pretending to play. Everyone thought he was crazy. Then he got a one-string ukulele that Al found when he was hired to clean out a garage. Jimmy, however, longed for a real guitar.

His father had lost yet another job, and their house was deteriorating into squalor—at one point the electricity was cut off—forcing them to move into a boardinghouse. Jimmy wandered the neighborhood, often stopping to listen to musicians when he heard someone playing. Finally when he was 15, he got his first real guitar. Cross—Jimmy restrung the guitar backward so that he could play it left-handed. To him, it felt more natural when he used his right hand on the neck.

He figured out the tuning by going to a music store and running his fingers on a guitar there. Jimmy was so thrilled with his new guitar that he barely let it out of his sight or his hands. She was only Although she and Al had long been divorced—and although she had even remarried a month earlier to a much older retired longshoreman—they continued to get together whenever they ran into each other at their favorite tavern. She had twice been hospitalized for cirrhosis of the liver during the previous few months and was hospitalized again in mid-January with hepatitis.

Her ill health affected her beauty and her outlook, and she had told her sister Delores that she was not going to live long. Delores tried to convince her otherwise, but barely a week later, Lucille was found unconscious in the alley beside the tavern she frequented.

Admitted to the hospital yet again, she was dead a few hours later from a ruptured spleen. It was never determined what kind of trauma might have caused the rupture—whether a fall or a blow.

Neither Jimmy nor Leon ever forgave their father for not letting them say good-bye to their mother. The instrument essentially defined who he was, and for the first time he found the self-esteem that had eluded him his whole life. He played day and night, absorbing all he could from records and the radio, schooling himself in the blues artistry of B.

Leon recalled how Jimmy had tried to electrify his acoustic guitar by rewiring the family stereo.

The same family friend who had chastised Al into downloading Jimmy his five-dollar acoustic now badgered him to download his son an electric guitar. Al eventually gave in and downloadd one on an installment plan from the local music store. The white Supro Ozark might have been a bushel of diamonds for all the pleasure it gave Jimmy. His over-the-top style got him bounced from his first band tryout.

But in the summer of , Jimmy joined a band formed by a group of high-school friends, the Velvetones. Jimmy was afraid to tell his father—when Al got in a rage, he would beat his son. When Jimmy finally summoned the courage to tell Al what had happened, Jimmy got severely reprimanded, but he also got a new guitar.

The stolen Supro was replaced with a white In his own words… Jimi Hendrix recalled in an interview with Beat Instrumental in how he had found his path in life and stuck with it: When I was 15, I decided the guitar was the instrument for me. Then I got tired of the guitar and put it aside, but when I heard Chuck Berry, it revived my interest.

I learned all the riffs I could. He also joined a new band, the Rocking Kings, which even had a manager, James Thomas. Jimmy was soon playing gigs all over the Seattle area. We used to have to play stuff by people like the Coasters. Anyway, you all had to do the same things before you could join a band— you all even had to do the same steps. The Rocking Kings gradually built a following, and, in , the group took second place in the All-State Band of the Year tournament held in Seattle.

During that time, Jimmy was also gigging with other bands. Like most bands, the Rocking Kings eventually ran out of steam and changed directions.

A few members quit. Jimmy stayed on but switched from bass to lead guitar. Manager James Thomas called the new combo Thomas and the Tomcats, after himself. Jimmy devoted a great deal of energy to the revamped band—he was playing and rehearsing nearly all the time—and his school attendance suffered.

He started to get warning letters that told him he would be expelled if he did not show up for class. By the end of October , Jimmy was officially finished with school. Although he would tell people he quit because he felt he had learned all he could and was ready for a taste of the real world, the simpler truth is that Jimmy Hendrix flunked out.

He hated working for his father—who treated him badly and paid him even worse—and he soon became restless. Unfortunately, his taste for adventure sometimes got him in trouble.

One night, he and a group of buddies broke into a department store and stole some clothes. The next day, though, either out of remorse or fear of being caught, they tossed the clothes into a bin for the needy even though Jimmy himself could have qualified on that score. They were found out anyway, but the store decided not to press charges in exchange for gardening services from Al. Then, in May , Jimmy was arrested while joyriding with friends in a stolen car. The judge gave him a choice: a two-year sentence or a two-year suspended sentence if he joined the army.

As an year-old high-school dropout with a criminal record, Jimmy would have few job prospects. He had no problem with the army because he always had strong patriotic feelings, and the Cold War was still raging; in fact, not long before, he had visited the local Air Force recruitment office. But black pilots were a rarity then, and Jimmy was turned down—on the grounds of not having sufficient physical endurance. Now, facing jail time or the army, he gratefully opted for the latter.

He hoped to become a paratrooper with the st Airborne Division. Being a paratrooper required enlisting for a three-year hitch. On May 28, , Jimmy played his last gig with Thomas and the Tomcats: an outdoor street festival and dance.

Probably more important to Jimmy, he got from her a promise to keep his guitar at her house for safekeeping. He was now recruit RA 19 At first, though, it seemed to suit him well.

Perhaps because it was so antithetical to his unstructured upbringing, Hendrix initially found the predictability of army life and being told what to do and when to do it comforting.

One thing was very evident in his letters: He was homesick.

One other thing was very evident from his letters to and from Al: He and his father were getting along better than they ever had. Hendrix completed his basic training on August 4, He was now Private James Hendrix.

Then it was back to Fort Ord to await his permanent assignment. At the end of October, he finally got his assignment. He also got his wish: He would be a supply clerk at Fort Campbell, Kentucky, home of the st Airborne, known as the Screaming Eagles paratroop division. He arrived at Fort Campbell on November 8. A few days later, he wrote to his father: Well, here I am, exactly where I wanted to go in the st Airborne.

We jumped out of a foot tower on the third day we were here. It was almost fun There were three guys who quit when they got to the top of the tower They took one look outside and just quit. On his first simulated jump, Hendrix landed hard in a sand dune, but he was eager to try it again.

He was also eager to try the real thing. The notion of flight was intoxicating to a young man who daydreamed about the heavens and the cosmos. He wanted to experience the sensation of an aircraft lifting him up. He wanted to breathe the air a mile above the earth and briefly exist in that endless blue space, with the ground spread out like a blanket waiting to catch him. He learned quickly at Fort Campbell and was jumping out of airplanes within weeks.

At times he would board the craft with a camera and take pictures while falling. He and the army, however, were not a well-suited match. Like Hendrix, he had played with a number of bands before joining the army. One day, he happened by a practice room on the base, where Hendrix was playing a borrowed guitar. Cox introduced himself and checked out a bass. That was that. The two became instant buddies and began to jam regularly. In January , eight months into his army career, Jimmy Hendrix wrote home to ask for his Danelectro—he was tired of playing on army-issue guitars.

His father carefully wrapped and mailed it. Once the red Danelectro was back in his hands, he rarely let it out of his sight and played the instrument whenever he had a free moment.

Some nights, he fell asleep in his bunk with the guitar still in his hands. It was at this time that the army began to wash its hands of Private James M. Constant supervision is necessary to keep Pvt Hendrix from making minor mistakes about which he has been told time after time. Little Wing On many occasions Pvt Hendrix has been found sleeping on the job. Pvt Hendrix on many occasions has missed bed check In my opinion Pvt Hendrix should be eliminated from the service.

While the military gears slowly ground on, Hendrix and Cox formed a band with several fellow soldiers and began playing on weekends at venues on the base. The band also played at a nearby club, the Pink Poodle, just over the border in Clarksville, Tennessee.

Stationed as he was in the South, Hendrix had his first real taste of Jim Crow segregation, and the Pink Poodle was the place where black servicemen hung out. There, Hendrix also received an education in Southern blues and the blues greats from the region.But luck was with Hendrix, and just a few days later he was hired by a group that took him to Atlanta.

Aside from having a unique sound, Hendrix also had a unique look. How do you rate this music title overall? He realized that, to make the festival work, the musical artists would have to work for free—only their expenses would be paid. He also talked repeatedly of marriage and even sent her an engagement ring with a real diamond. Bridge Over Troubled Water. London in was the epicenter of cultural cool, thanks to British rock bands and the Carnaby Street fashion scene, spearheaded a couple of years earlier by designer Mary Quant and hairdresser Vidal Sassoon.
