I imagine where he would have ended up had he not died so young.

Through many of samsara’s births I hasten seeking, finding not the builder of this house - pain is birth again, again. O builder of this house you’re seen, you shall not build a house again, all your beams have given away, rafters of the ridge decayed, mind to the unconditioned gone, exhaustion of craving has it reached.(Dhp - 153, 154)

Not quite so old, only 42 years, but also someone who died at about the same age...

Nice!

I heard a good story about how Frank Zappa gave Jimi his first wah-wah pedal during a stretch of shows they played at the Fillmore East.

It's actually interesting how Hendrix's first album (66) is pre-wah, and Axis - Bold As Love (67) is full of it. At the same time, Eric started using it on Disraeli Gears (Tales of Brave Ulysses).

Here's Miles Davis, with John McLaughlin, Herbie Hancock, and others a few months after that Hendrix concert, with the track "Right Off" from "A Tribute to Jack Johnson".



The really cool thing about this is how the bass player misses the key change at about 2:10, keeps on obliviously "thunk", "thunk", "thunk" (or, to be fair, perhaps McLaughlin plays the wrong chord). Davis, rather than aborting the take, turns it into a triumph by coming in with just the right notes to resolve the chord...
See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Tribute_to_Jack_Johnson
This was recorded in April 1970, presumably after Davis had become infatuated with Hendrix's Band of Gypsies performances ("That Machine Gun, Man..." sorry, can't do Miles' voice justice in print...) and wanted that funk feel. Only McLaughlin has a wah wah on this, but later, almost everyone in his band had one... This is paralleled in Zappa's band, with Zappa's horn players making nice use of it in the early 70s...

At 18:45 on the above McLaughlin heads into the riff from Sly and the Family Stone's "Sing a Simple Song::



Sly and the Family Stone were a much underrated part of the funk/soul/psychedelic thing...

Cheesey, feel good song. I know it from a ski flick from the early 2000's...anything in the background of good skiing is usually a win for me.

I didn't get into punk until I was 30. Weird.
