Jimi Hendrix
Season 1  |  Episode 5  |  Smooth/Arts  |  January 10, 2019

Jimi Hendrix earned three UK top 10 hits with Hey Joe, Purple Haze, and The Wind Cries Mary. He achieved fame in the US after his performance at the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967, and in 1968 his third and final studio album, Electric Ladyland, reached No.1 in the US; it was Hendrix's most commercially successful release and his first and only No.1 album. The world's highest-paid performer, he headlined the Woodstock Festival in 1969 and the Isle of Wight Festival in 1970, before his death barbiturate-related asphyxia on September 18, 1970, at the age of 27. Jimi Hendrix was arguably the greatest instrumentalist in the history of rock music.
