Exclusive Premiere: Jonny Lang Talks About Experience Hendrix Tour

Starting in March, the next round of the Experience Hendrix tour will hit the road for a three-week U.S. tour. The eighth edition of the all-star tribute to Jimi Hendrix will once again feature a wide range of guitarists honoring the legend.

This year’s special guests will include Jonny Lang, Buddy Guy, Zakk Wylde, Bootsy Collins, Dweezil Zappa and Kenny Wayne Shepherd. The rhythm section will feature Billy Cox, who played in Hendrix’s Band of Gypsys, and drummer Chris Layton.

The itinerary for the Experience Hendrix 2014 Tour is included below.

In the exclusive premiere of the above video, Lang talks about Hendrix’s influence on him, saying that the guitar god hit him early. “He’s got this component to who he is that I’ve never seen anybody be able to emulate,” he says. “I’ve never seen anybody really play like Jimi Hendrix. He’s just amazing.”

Lang also talks about Hendrix’s guitar style, citing his “recklessness” as an inspiration for his own playing. “He’s constantly on the edge and flying by the seat of his pants,” he says. “But it all falls together at the last possible moment in the most beautiful way.”

The nine-minute clip also features some Hendrix music. Lang offers his take of ‘Fire’ in concert, pulling off the famous guitar solo with style and flash. Check it out.
