Hendrix Anniversary

Writing about the 40th anniversary of Jimi Hendrix's death for the Asbury Park Press this morning. That article will appear as my Music Notes column in Sunday's Entertainment section.

Meantime, I stumbled on an interesting article that outlines the conspiracy theory around Hendrix's death. The author concludes that, whatever the exact circumstances, it was the system of capitalist marketing and greed that killed Hendrix.

For those who missed the news last week, a BBC article on the house in London where Hendrix once lived next door to the Handel House Museum. The museum currently has a Hendrix exhibit up in his old apartment. The BBC article includes a short video, with some clips of Hendrix in action.

Also, you can read my blog entries on Hendrix's "Star-Spangled Banner", written last July.
