James Marshall "Jimi" Hendrix (born Johnny Allen Hendrix; November 27, 1942 – September 18, 1970) was an American rock guitarist, singer, and songwriter. Although his mainstream career spanned only four years, he is widely regarded as one of the most influential electric guitarists in the history of popular music, and one of the most celebrated musicians of the 20th century. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame describes him as "arguably the greatest instrumentalist in the history of rock music".

The album, and its 1968 successors - Axis: Bold As Love and the seminal blues-oriented developments of Electric Ladyland - earned Hendrix international acclaim as a premier rock instrumentalist and innovator of his generation. A 'greatest hits' collection, "Smash Hits" (1969), and an in-concert memento of his historic Monterey appearance, "Otis Redding, Jimi Hendrix Experience at Monterey" (1970), followed before his untimely death
Jimi Hendrix’s flagship album Electric Ladyland turns 50 this year, a musical masterpiece that brought the psychedelic rocker well into the mainstream. And while hits such as ‘All Along the Watch Tower’ and ‘Crosstown Traffic’ have certainly stood the test of time, it was the bluesy experimental sounds and epic wah pedal riffs of ‘Voodoo Child’ that undoubtedly defined the album. Unbeknownst to many, however, is that this smash hit track was conceived almost by chance. It would become Hendrix’s biggest commercial success and his only number one UK hit. Ironically, the meandering impromptu 15-minute version, which was included on the album as ‘Voodoo Chile’, was about as far as you could get from any chart-topping pop formula of the time.
