Experience Hendrix 2008 Tour

This past October, we joined up with the 2008 Experience Hendrix tour—a five week long, cross-country tour featuring some of the best known and most respected figures in rock and blues that celebrates the legacy and music of Jimi Hendrix.

Featured artists included blues giant Buddy Guy, contemporary guitar greats Jonny Lang, Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Eric Johnson, Cesar Rojas and David Hidalgo of Los Lobos as well as Aerosmith’s Brad Whitford.

The tour was presented by Experience Hendrix, L.L.C., the Hendrix family-owned company founded by James A. “Al” Hendrix, Jimi’s father, and Gibson Guitar.

Below, watch our coverage, which highlights the October 23, 2008, show in Philadelphia, PA, and includes some new interview footage with Billy Cox who talks about the tour and the passing of his long-time friend and bandmate, Mitch Mitchell
