As previously reported, Experience Hendrix LLC and Sony Legacy are releasing four new titles as their ongoing Jimi Hendrix catalog project. This new wave of releases focuses on live Hendrix, including a four-disc deluxe box-set version of Winterland, which will be released September 13.
Actress Hayley Atwell, who will star in "Captain America" this summer, let it slip to Esquire magazine that her next project might be a Jimi Hendrix biopoic starring rapper Andre 3000 (whose real name is Andre Benjamin) in the title role.
The dynamics and emotions of the Jimi Hendrix live guitar sound were partly galvanized and baptized through the fires and events of social unrest. Although we’ve all seen the "Star Spangled Banner" at Woodstock over and over, unless you were around at that time, it can be difficult to grasp and feel the levels of impact and significance it represented.
