JIMI LIVES!!!

In our hearts and our minds...Today is the 43rd anniversary of JIMI's passing into the next world. The date is etched in my brain forever. I took my first trip to Europe in 1970 and was flying into London's Heathrow airport on Sept 18th...an overnight flight from Boston. Landed that morning to hear the news that he was gone. I'm so pleased that his music has endured and that new generations of rockers are still discovering and being influenced by his genius. Celebrate JIMI!!!

I was 2 years old when he passed but his music is in the soundtrack of my life. Not too many Jimi cover bands out there because it's tough to make Jimi's magic.
