James Marshall “Jimi” Hendrix was born on this day – November 27, 1942. The West Coast Seattle Boy podcast series continues with stories about how he wrote and performed his music at a break-neck pace, leaving us with the endless amounts of music in his personal vaults still being mined 40 years after his death.
First episode in the Jimi Hendrix – West Coast Seattle Boy podcast series features comments by his producer, Chas Chandler, current archive producer John McDermott, and his sister, Janie Hendrix. It closes with a rare acoustic recording of “1983 (A Merman I Should Turn to Be)” from the new West Coast Seattle Boy box set.
Guitarist Johnny Winter talks about playing the blues and sleeping on a pile of garbage at Woodstock, between clips of his blistering set at the 1969 festival.
