His greatest moment was unquestionably his rendition of the American national anthem at Woodstock, and undeniably, his contribution to music lies in the very fact that his style and expression gave birth to a whole new generations of musicians.
This tribute highlights this genius as a humane peace-loving world-citizen of great spiritual strength, who played the guitar to make a socio-political comment ~ playing "The Star-Spangled Banner" without a word being spoken, at a time when others sang "Blowing in the wind."
The intensely sensitive Mr. Hendrix almost touches every heart that believes in non-violence, and in this context alone he should be remembered as a great humanitarian,.. leave alone that he was also a major musical genius of this century.
Decidedly, in the context of today's world, he is even more
relevant than ever before.
I see the Sun
I see myself
I see your face
I cried in Woodstock
I laughed with Janis
No guns in Vietnam
And if I was alive today
Oh,... Outsider... Oh,... Outsider... Oh,..
"He played guitar
Hari Om... Hari Om / Jimi... Jimi... Jimi
