James Marshall "Jimi" Hendrix foi um guitarrista, cantor e compositor norte-americano. Em praticamente todas as listas já publicadas de melhores guitarristas da história, ocupa o primeiro lugar, e um dos mais importantes e influentes músicos de sua era, em diversos gêneros musicais. Depois de obter sucesso inicial na Europa, conquistou fama nos Estados Unidos depois de seu desempenho em 1967 no Festival Pop de Monterey. Hendrix foi a principal atração, dois anos mais tarde, do icônico Festival de Woodstock e do Festival da Ilha de Wight, em 1969 e 1970 respectivamente . Hendrix dava preferência a amplificadores distorcidos e crus, dando ênfase ao ganho e aos agudos, e ajudou a desenvolver a técnica, até então indesejada, da microfonia. Hendrix foi um dos músicos que popularizaram o pedal wah-wah no rock popular, que ele utilizava frequentemente para dar um timbre exagerado a seus solos, particularmente com o uso de bends e legato baseados na escala pentatônica. Foi influenciado por artistas de blues como T-Bone Walker, B.B. King, Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Albert King e Elmore James, guitarristas de rhythm and blues e soul como Curtis Mayfield, Steve Cropper, assim como de alguns artistas do jazz moderno. Em 1966, Hendrix, que tocou e gravou com a banda de Little Richard de 1964 a 1965, foi citado como tendo dito: "Quero fazer com minha guitarra o que Little Richard faz com sua voz."

O guitarrista mexicano Carlos Santana sugeriu que a música de Hendrix poderia ter sido influenciada por sua herança parcialmente indígena. Como produtor musical, Hendrix também inovou ao usar o estúdio de gravação como uma extensão de suas idéias musicais. Foi um dos primeiros a experimentar com a estereofonia e phasing em gravações de rock.

Hendrix conquistou diversos dos mais prestigiosos prêmios concedidos a artistas de rock durante sua vida, e recebeu diversos outros postumamente, incluindo sua confirmação no Hall da Fama do Rock and Roll americano, em 1992, e no Hall da Fama da Música do Reino Unido, em 2005. Uma blue plaque foi erguida, com seu nome, diante de sua antiga residência, na Brook Street, de Londres, em setembro de 1997. Uma estrela na Calçada da Fama de Hollywood foi-lhe dedicada em 1994. Em 2006 seu álbum de estréia nos Estados Unidos, Are You Experienced, foi inserido no Registro Nacional de Gravações, e a revista Rolling Stone classificou-o como o melhor guitarrista na sua lista de 100 maiores guitarristas de todos os tempos, em 2003. Hendrix também foi a primeira pessoa a fazer parte do Hall da Fama da Música Nativo-Americana.

„I don't really live on compliments. As a matter of fact, they have a way of distracting me.“

—  Jimi Hendrix
Context: I don't really live on compliments. As a matter of fact, they have a way of distracting me. I know a whole lot of musicians, artists out there who hears the compliments and thinks "wow, I must have been really great" and so they get fat and satisfied and they get lost and forget about their actual talent and start living in another world.

„Is it tomorrow or just the end of time?“

„There's so many tight-lipped ideas and laws around, and people put themselves in uniforms so tightly, that it's almost impossible to break out of that. Subconsciously, what these people are doing, they're killin' off all these little flashes they have, cutting off the idea of wanting to understand.“

—  Jimi Hendrix
Context: There's so many tight-lipped ideas and laws around, and people put themselves in uniforms so tightly, that it's almost impossible to break out of that. Subconsciously, what these people are doing, they're killin' off all these little flashes they have, cutting off the idea of wanting to understand. They forgot, didn't believe, or just snuffed the feelings or thoughts off to continue with their crazy soul. They don't have the patience to really check out what's happenin' through music, theater and science. It’s like a spaceship. If a spaceship came down and you know nothin’ about it, the first thing you’re going to think about is shooting it. In other words, you get negative in the first place, which is not really the natural way of thinking. It’s like shooting at a flying saucer as it tries to land without giving the occupants a chance to identify themselves. As quoted in "WHAT HENDRIX NEVER SAID : They Don't Want to Know What He Really Said and Demand a Slacker Fantasy Instead" (22 March 2010) by Michael Fairchild, at rockprophecy.com; the author does not provide any sourcing for this statement, beyond his assertion that his authority and expertise should be trusted because: "I was assigned to compile all known quotes of Jimi Hendrix and edit this text into the "autobiography" of Jimi, in his own words. That book has been censored/suppressed by all world publishers for two decades now, but it's where I became familiar with Jimi's unique syntax, vernacular, and habits of thought."

„Pretty soon I believe people will have to rely on music to get some kind of peace of mind, or satisfaction, or direction, actually. More so than politics, the big ego scene. You know it's an art of words... Meaning nothing.“

—  Jimi Hendrix
Context: Definitely, and it's getting more spiritual. Pretty soon I believe people will have to rely on music to get some kind of peace of mind, or satisfaction, or direction, actually. More so than politics, the big ego scene. You know it's an art of words... Meaning nothing. Therefore you will have to get an earthier substance, like music or the arts. When asked if music has a meaning

And now the whole world is here for me to see,
Now I'm searching for my love to be.“
