Hidden Histories: Jimi Hendrix & Éire Apparent
Tomorrow, September 18th, marks the anniversary of the passing of the great Jimi Hendrix. To quote Guitar Player magazine, “He changed everything. What don't we owe Jimi Hendrix?”
Just 27 years old at the time of his passing, Hendrix was the world’s highest-paid performer of his day and remains perhaps the most influential guitarist to date. A lesser-known dimension of his story concerns the band Éire Apparent from Belfast. Hendrix not alone appeared on their album, he produced it - one of several surprising connections to Ireland.
