Born November 27, 1942, in Seattle, Washington, Hendrix taught himself to play guitar as a teenager listening to records by blues guitarists Muddy Waters, B.B. King, and rockers such as Chuck Berry and Eddie Cochran. Hailed by Rolling Stone as the greatest guitarist of all time, Jimi Hendrix was also one of the biggest cultural figures of the Sixties, a psychedelic voodoo child. A left-hander who took a right-handed Fender Stratocaster and played it upside down, Hendrix pioneered the use of the instrument as an electronic sound source. Players before Hendrix had experimented with feedback and distortion, but he turned those effects and others into a controlled, fluid vocabulary every bit as personal as the blues with which he began.
