If you happen to “like” one of your favorite musicians on Facebook – like Peter Frampton, for example – sometimes you get more than you bargained for.
Tuesday (November 27) marks 70 years since the birth of Jimi Hendrix, the man who changed electric guitar and rock’n’roll forever. For the past few weeks, CBS Local has discussed the man’s impact with musicians who came after him, his peers, and even one of his main inspirations. Everyone felt his influence, whether it was on their guitar playing, or their singing. Some even found a new direction for their life thanks to Jimi.
“Hendrix playing wasn’t ugly, but it was more ballsy. A little out-of-tune, but it was full of passion. I think it’s his passion that I love most of all. I’ve got everything that he’s done. ‘Are You Experienced?’ just blew me away.”
The concert saw Frampton playing one set revisiting the entire Frampton Comes Alive! LP, and another covering the rest of his career, from his former band Humble Pie’s cover of Ray Charles’ “I Don’t Need No Doctor” to his recent Grammy-winning solo take on Soundgarden’s “Black Hole Sun.”
