I sometimes wonder what he would be doing if he were still alive. He was deep into psychedelics. He would've outgrown that and become a great blues musician, I bet.

Jimi was doomed to die early. The gods loved him. They wanted him for themselves.

I think he would've ended up doing jazz. There were hints he was heading that direction at the end of his life.

A couple of interesting documentaries here on the Are You Experienced album and the first UK tour.

Miles Davis thought that, too (as far as I remember).

I was very into Hendrix stuff when I was much younger. Some 30 years later I listen to Hendrix rarely. But when I do I just listen to his blues stuff (especially to live versions 'Red House')

Hell yes! Red House is where it's at! Love the version on Blues.

True. Me too.
Especially that version from San Diego's Sports Arena, May 25. 1969 is like something holy to me ... can't find just one note he plays in there which is not perfect... truly amazing!
