My ‘Experience Hendrix’ Experience

Experience Hendrix Tour Bus/Adam West

What can you say about Jimi Hendrix? I mean, besides the fact that he was one of the greatest guitarists that ever lived? How about the fact that he was one of the most innovative players, practically re-inventing the way guitarists play the instrument, and changed the face of rock & roll forever? And did I mention the countless other guitar players he influenced? A guy like that is the true definition of a legend.

Thanks to his sister Janie, and Experience Hendrix LLC, we have a tribute to the the master in the tour known as Experience Hendrix. This tour features some of the best players in rock today. It’s one that I’d seen come and go in recent years, and always wanted to see, but it just didn’t work out. This year proved to be different. My boss had a pair of tickets to the date this past Saturday at Austin City Limits, and he wasn’t able to go. He asked if anybody wanted to take them off his hands. Best of all, he was willing to let them go at face value. That was great, considering the show was sold out. Even better, the seats were unbelievable-fourth row, near the center. Now, if you ever been to this particular theater, you know there’s really not a bad seat in the house but 4th row? amazing.

So, my 18 yr old son and I settled in, and prepared to be treated to an evening of Hendrix tunes, performed by some guitar greats. Eric Johnson, Dweezil Zappa, Jonny Lang, Robert Randolph, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Brad Whitford, Doyle Bramhall II, Billy Cox, Eric Gales, Mato from Indigenous, David Hidalgo and Cesar Rosas of Los Lobos. Let me tell you, it was amazing. The talent, the spirit, the passion, the feeling of Jimi was all there. This was a real tribute, and I’m sure Jimi was smiling down from heaven.

If you ever get a chance to see the Experience Hendrix tour, do so. It was an unbelievable show, that cranked for nearly 3 hours.

And,  if you ever get a chance to see a show at Austin City Limits, it is definitely a great place to see one.
