Hendrix At 70: From Lemmy To Frampton, Legends Sound off

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.

Hendrix At 70: “He Changed The Whole Landscape” – Tom Johnston of The Doobie Brothers
