    WOW, He passed away when I was a toddler but grew up on his music. My Father listened to his music. Didn’t realize it has been that long.

    He was just a boy when he died.
    Amazing photo, thanks for sharing.

    I LOVE that chair he’s sitting in.
    This photo could be in a room taken today.

    I did a 7th grade report over Jimi Hendrix. Coincidentally, that same 7th grade report was my first experience with drawing typography by hand and loving it. Thank you, Jimi.

    Just imagine what his work would be like today! So classic in my opinion.
