James Marshall Hendrix (born Johnny Allen Hendrix; November 27, 1942 – September 18, 1970) was an American guitarist, singer and songwriter. He is widely considered to be the greatest guitarist in the history of rock music by other musicians and commentators in the industry, and one of the most important and influential musicians of his era across a range of genres.
Hendrix owned and used a variety of guitars during his career. His guitar of choice however, and the instrument that became most associated with him, was the Fender Stratocaster, or “Strat”. He started playing Stratocasters in 1966 and thereafter used it almost exclusively for his stage performances and recordings.
Early on September 18, 1970, Jimi Hendrix died in London under circumstances which have never been fully explained.
