Jimi Hendrix Movie on TCM

Jimi Hendrix

Are you looking for something good to watch?  Flipping through the channels I found Jimi Hendrix on TCM (Turner Classic Movies).  It’s a great documentary that also features commentary from Eric Clapton and Peter Townshend.

He is considered to be one of the greatest rock musicians to ever live.  Prior to watching this special, I have had many other rock musicians in mind ahead of Jimi.  However, I definitely have a new found respect for the man after watching this documentary.  In his life he was only alive and popular for about a half a decade.  In that half decade he did produce many hits.  To me the big seller was watching him play guitar with his teeth.  That is amazing!  If given the opportunity, like Jimi, I too can set a guitar on fire, but there is no way I can pull of the guitar solo from “Hey Joe” with my teeth.
