JIMI HENDRIX LANDS ON THE COVERS OF GUITAR TECHNIQUES, GUITAR PLAYER and TOTAL GUITAR THIS MONTH
Jimi Hendrix continues to receive considerable interest in the Media with three simultaenous appearances on music magazines this month. First, the April 2007 edition of Guitar Techniques (UK) features Jimi Hendrix on the cover of the magazine and a multi-page feature focusing on how fans can “sound like the greatest guitarist of all time.” The magazine also includes a cover-mounted CD featuring music accompaniaments for guitarists.
Also this month, Guitar Player (US) celebrates its 40th Anniversary with a special ode to the music that was popular in the Summer of 1967. The cover features a green and purple toned image of Jimi Hendrix performing on stage at Golden Gate Park in San Francisco from 1967 plus tributes to Hendrix and The Experiences’ debut release Are You Experienced that the magazine calls “all killer, no filler!” We heartily agree.
And finally, Total Guitar (UK) celebrates the 100 Greatest Riffs of all-time with their multi-page spread. While Jimi does not top this chart this time ’round; he does land on the list four times with “Purple Haze” (#20), “Voodoo Child (Slight Return)” (#27), “Little Wing” (#60), and “Foxey Lady” (#87).
