Tuesday (November 27) marks 70 years since the birth of Jimi Hendrix, the man who changed electric guitar and rock’n’roll forever. For the past few weeks, CBS Local has discussed the man’s impact with musicians who came after him, his peers, and even one of his main inspirations. Everyone felt his influence, whether it was on their guitar playing, or their singing. Some even found a new direction for their life thanks to Jimi.
Prog-rock giants Yes say they may have a new album, with their latest new singer Jon Davison, as soon as next year. That would be just two years after their last album, which featured their last singer, Benoit David.
Let’s take a look at this week’s albums, reissues and other musical goodies from classic artists making musical waves yet again.
