  • Jimi Hendrix - 394 words
    Jimi Hendrix .) He then disppeared from the public until it was arranged that he and the band play in an event at the Magical Garden of the Haleakala Crater on the Hawaiian island of Maui. Later that month in 1970, without stopping to rest, the Band of Gypsys traveled back to New York in celebration of the grand opening of Electric Lady, the studio which Hendrix had always dreamed of creating. Recorded in this studio was the very last album before the death of Hendrix, Cry of Love. To finish paying the costs of the newly opened studio, Hendrix was forced to return to touring (Hendrix 120). The traveling never seemed to end; from New York, the band was on their way to Europe where they were t ...

  • Jimi Hendrix - 965 words
    Jimi Hendrix Jimi Hendrix perhaps no other rock-and-roll trailblazer was as original or as influential in such a short span of time as Jimi Hendrix. Widely acknowledged as one of the most daring and inventive virtuosos in rock history, Hendrix pioneered the electric guitar (he played a right-handed Fender Stratocaster-- his "Electric Lady"--upside-down and left-handed) as an electronic sound source capable of feedback, distortion, and a host of other effects that could be crafted into an articulate and fluid emotional vocabulary. And though he was on the scene as a solo artist for less than five years, Hendrix is credited for having a profound effect on everyone from George Clinton and Miles ...

  • Jimi Hendrix - 871 words
    Jimi Hendrix Jimi Hendrix, the greatest guitarist in rock history, revolutionized the sound of rock. In 1967, the Jimi Hendrix Experience rocked the nation with their first album, Are You Experienced?. Hendrix's life was cut short by the tragedy of drugs in 1970, when he was only twenty seven years old. In these three years the sound of rock changed greatly, and Hendrix's guitar playing was a major influence. Jimi was born in Seattle, Washington on November 27, 1942. As a young boy, whenever the chance came, Jimi would try to play along with his R & B records. However, music was not his life long dream. At first, the army was. In the late 1950's, Hendrix enlisted in the 101st Airborne Divisi ...

  • Jimi Hendrix Vs, Kurt Cobain - 726 words
    Jimi Hendrix Vs, Kurt Cobain History has always been marked by great music. Every generation has its own unique genre; from classical to swing, people have always found a song or a melody that seemed as if it was written just for them. However, truly great music is created by a certain type of genius. It takes more than the average guy to forge a classic like Stairway to Heaven. Two men in the late twentieth century were such masterminds: Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobain. While both will live forever in musical infamy, they will remain legends for different reasons. One of the most important factors in becoming a rock legend is bringing about a revolution, opening people to something bold and ne ...

  • The Ideal Dinner Billy Corgan, Jimi Hendrix, And G Washington - 511 words
    The Ideal Dinner (Billy Corgan, Jimi Hendrix, and G. Washington) If I could invite any three people to dinner, I would probably choose Billy Corgan of the Smashing Pumpkins, Jimi Hendrix, and George Washington. A strange combination to say the least, but I feel that I could learn a lot from all of them in the areas of creativity, skill, and wisdom. I would invite Billy Corgan because of the poetic lyrics in the songs he writes. He uses majestic words to describe everyday things and expresses himself beautifully, even in songs that don't sound like they would have good lyrics. I would like to know where he gets his inspiration. His lyrics do not even have to rhyme, but they flow together so b ...

    60'S Music Influence On Our Society Sixties Music and How it Reflected the Changing Times Chris Montaigne Professor Shao Rhetoric II The 1960's in the United States was a decade marred by social unrest, civil rights injustice, and violence both home and abroad. These were some of the factors that lead to a cultural revolution. The revolution attempted to diverge the fabric of American society. Teenagers were living dangerously and breaking away from the ideals that their parents held. In the process they created their own society (Burns 1990). They were young and had the nerve to believe that they could change the world. Their leaders had lofty goals as well. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. had d ...

    A View On Censorship And The Government Daniel Bagwell Ms. Waggoner English 111 15 November 2000 A View on Music and the Government The censorship of music and other forms of entertainment by the government have long been the topic of discussion among social and political circles. Some forms of censorship such as warning labels for parents can be helpful. However the censorship of music is just not right, and the government has no right to do so. All too often the government gets on a self righteous feeling and thinks that it is it's right to control what goes in or out of this so called "free nation's" minds. Censorship in music falls into one of those categories in which the American peopl ...

The Telharmonium proved to be the first of several forward-thinking electronic instruments to be developed in the early part of the century, the most important of which was the Theramin. Named after its Russian inventor Leon Theramin and consisting of a box with two ariels sticking out to control volume and pitch ...

    Kurt Cobain On April 9th the world woke up to the news of Kurt Cobain's suicide. Those who followed the grundge music of Cobain's band, Nirvana, were angry, but not surprised. With songs such as "I Hate Myself and Want to Die" and constant references to suicide and drugs, suicide was the obvious explanation for his death. Kurt put it best when he said, "I'm thought of as this pissy, complaining, freaked-out schizophrenic who wants to kill himself all the time." (Bozza) To many people, Cobain just joined the club of rock stars who self-destructed. Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, and Brian Jones set the precedent. The Seattle Police Department confirmed the conclusion everyone had al ...
