Description

Discussion of the artist’s legacy. Hendrix had a huge impact on musicians across many genres, from rock to soul to funk to jazz, and many of them went on to reflect his influence. I look at their work, speculate on what Hendrix may have done had he lived, and summarize his status as a timeless artist who was of and beyond the blues.
