Less than four years separated Jimi Hendrix's first London recording session for 'Hey Joe' in October 1966 and his final studio visit, a mastering session with Bob Ludwig (now of Gateway Mastering in Portland) in August 1970. In that narrow window, Hendrix recorded a body of work that continues to surprise, inspire and influence generations of fans and musicians alike.  

Since 1995, when Experience Hendrix (then headed by the late Al Hendrix, Jimi's father) gained control of Jimi's musical legacy, his core music catalog has been restored and a series of carefully compiled and annotated albums has been issued, each offering a bounty of previously unavailable material. The latest is 'People, Hell and Angels,' a collection of 12 previously unreleased studio recordings from 1968 and 1969 due on March 5 from Experience Hendrix/Sony Legacy.

The passing of a great Stan Musial

Cardinals legend dies at age 92

Baseball Hall of Famer Stan Musial passed away last week at the age of 92. He is one of the all-time greats, among the historic leaders in almost every statistical category. He won three National League MVP Awards and was elected to 24 All-Star teams, all with the St. Louis Cardinals over the course of a career that spanned over two decades from 1941 to 1963.

And he might be the most underrated great player in Major League Baseball history.

Ask Todd Parker - May 23, 2012

Dear Todd Parker,

I'm fresh out of college and working my first real job. I'm the only one of my friends who managed to find a job in their field. Everybody I graduated with is either sending out a million applications or else working somewhere that they hate. They always talk about how incredibly lucky I am to work where I do.

They're right. I am lucky. This is a great job. I like what I do and it's a perfect springboard for me to work my way up the ladder to the career that I'm looking for. I even like the people I work with; they're almost all really nice.

Almost.

Ask Todd Parker - March 14, 2012

Dear Todd Parker,

I recently married the love of my life. He is a sweet, caring, generous, wonderful man. We have a great relationship and I couldn't ask for anything more. The only thing is that he really likes to hit the bars with his friends two or three times a week. I'm never asked to go and it's almost as if he doesn't want me along. 

The problem is I know there are other women in the places he goes, and some of them are kind of sketchy and would probably sleep with any man with a pulse who looked their way. They're not the kind of people I would want to be around anyway, but I don't want him around them either.

When he goes with his friends, he sometimes doesn't get home until after midnight. The lateness doesn't really bother me because I really do trust him, and it is a small town so I'll know if something happens. The temptation is there though, and if anything happens, what's done is done. For all I know, he could have already slept his way through every trashy woman in town. His friends, most of whom are single, are no better.
