'Recording was a tremendous passion for him. He created this huge backlog of work.'

John McDermott, catalog manager and producer for Experience Hendrix

We think of him as the ber-cool, eternally youthful ultimate guitar hero, but next year will mark what would have been Jimi Hendrix's 70th birthday. For some fans, that's kind of a shocking thought. Even more incredible is just how much music he managed to record between his arrival in London in 1966 and his death in Sept., 1970 at the age of 27. It isn't merely the volume of music he committed to tape in those four years that is amazing, but that so much of it is of a consistently high quality.
