Saturday’s Songs – Rock Me Baby, Jimi Hendrix
Just watch him…
Okay, here’s a question to ponder.
Jimi died way too young. I watch this video – his energy, his confidence, his command - and it makes me crazy that he didn’t keep on going, pushing the outer limits of his own guitar playing. Then I think, if he had lived to the ripe old age of say, Dylan or Mick, would the luster of his early years have dimmed? Of course I’d prefer he had lived. But I wonder if his early talent would be so moving if he had continued into old age.
