James Marshall Hendrix had one of the shortest, most famous careers of all time. After being given leave from the US military he moved to Tennessee and played backing for the likes of Little Richard and the Isley Brothers. He then moved to London in 1966 and formed the Jimi Hendrix Experience - becoming a household name in a matter of months. His mainstream career lasted a short 4 years yet he remains to be regarded as arguably the greatest instrumentalist in the history of rock music. A member of The 27 Club, Hendrix’ music and guitar solos continue to inspire the musicians of today.
