Experience Hendrix Background
In the summer of 1995,
the Hendrix family's full-sponsored tribute concert debuted as the marquee-topping attraction at the Bumbershoot Arts &
Music Festival in Seattle.
For nearly two decades since the premiere, special events have been held around the planet,
including the Jimi Hendrix Electric Guitar Festival (1998); seven, exclusive one-night-only all-star concerts held at venues
around London and the U.S.; the traveling Jim Hendrix Red House Tour; and more!
"The Experience Hendrix Tour is a unique
opportunity for fans to experience the music and legacy of Jimi Hendrix in a way that CDs simply cannot offer," said Janie
Hendrix, president and CEO of Experience Hendrix, L.L.C. "We felt strongly that a live presentation of the music that Jimi
Hendrix created and which inspired him would be an exciting and unique way of conveying his relevance to today's audiences."
Jimi Hendrix Experience group members Billy Cox and Mitch Mitchell additionally welcome the chance to celebrate Jimi Hendrix's
continuing inspiration. Cox first became friends with Jimi when they were in the U.S. Army's 101st Airborne Division together.
He eventually joined him as the bassist in the Band of Gypsys and the Experience. Cox said that he is impressed with the tribute
concept and the work the Hendrix family has done to keep Jimi Hendrix's legacy alive.
Cox said, "Nobody cared about
any of us musicians until Experience Hendrix came into being. We were never consulted about anything to do with the Jimi's
music until the Hendrix family took over. I think Jimi would be proud of the way Janie Hendrix and the company have kept the
music available to people around the world." Bandmate Mitchell echoed Cox's sentiments and said, "Janie Hendrix has done her
best to rectify the miserable, unjust situation which had gone on year after year. Janie cares about the music, she cares
about the legacy and the fans. Until Experience Hendrix came on the scene there was no one in my opinion who cared about the
quality of the music, about Jimi's name, and certainly about me. As for me, on one but Janie ever bothered and for that I
am deeply grateful."
Today, Jimi Hendrix's iconic standing is untarnished. Over three decades later, Jimi Hendrix continues
to inspire musicians all over the world, including Lenny Kravitz and Outkast. The music of Jimi Hendrix is clearly timeless.
Despite the genre or venue, the music of Jimi Hendrix is covered by John Mayer, Ben Harper, Los Lobos, Sting and more!
allure has been consistently tapped by Hollywood. You can still find Hendrix tunes in soundtracks of flicks like Cars and
Black Hawk Down and on TV shows like Entourage and American Idol. Jimi Hendrix is even included in video games like Gran Turismo
and Guitar Hero.
