God I still miss him...

Sure enough this morning came on to me;
Silver winged silhouette against a child's sunrise.
And my angel, she said unto me,
Today is the day for you to rise.

"and you call yerself a guitar player??!??"

Not really, no!

(I'm a guitar player like Todd Snider, or John Prine, or James Keelaghan are guitar players)

I went to London in August 1970 to start post secondary studies.

For many, many people, when the news of Hendrix's death broke it was like a dark cloud had settled in after the shocking disbelief of a tornado.

I'm sure that it must have been like that back here also.

Carlos Santana once said that Jimi's playing was like he (Jimi) was painting with oils while everyone else was just learning to use water colours.

Jimi was from another planet. There can never be anyone like him again.

Man, over the course of a couple of years we lost a lot of talent.

"over the course of a couple of years we lost a lot of talent."
Fred Eaglesmith has a really good song called "Alcohol and Pills" about that very subject.
