Early last month, late electric guitar legend Jimi Hendrix was honored with a blue plaque at London’s Hard Rock Hotel – a building formerly known as the Cumberland hotel, which was the location of Hendrix’s last interview.

To celebrate, the unveiling of the historical marker coincided with two days of festivities that paid tribute to the legacy of the torch-bearing blues giant, including a screening of Music, Money, Madness… Jimi Hendrix in Maui and a Q&A with his producer/engineer, Eddie Kramer.
