“The solo played with his teeth conveys so much more depth and feeling than almost anything distorted played by anyone with their fingers in the past 45 years”…

Hendrix Live at Monterey are some of my favorite performances ever. To display so much power, control, and confidence in your twenties is something a lot of kids can’t identify with. Jimi was born a legend, and will be for the rest of our time. Rock on, Jimi!

+ Hey Joe lyrics +

Hey Joe, where you goin’ with that gun in your hand?
Hey Joe, I said where you goin’ with that gun in your hand?
Alright. I’m goin down to shoot my old lady,
you know I caught her messin’ ’round with another man.
Yeah,! I’m goin’ down to shoot my old lady,
you know I caught her messin’ ’round with another man.
Huh! And that ain’t too cool.

Uh, hey Joe, I heard you shot your woman down,
you shot her down.
Uh, hey Joe, I heard you shot you old lady down,
you shot her down to the ground. Yeah!

Yes, I did, I shot her,
you know I caught her messin’ ’round,
messin’ ’round town.
Uh, yes I did, I shot her
you know I caught my old lady messin’ ’round town.
And I gave her the gun and I shot her!

Alright
