Guitar playing changed in the UK forever 51 years ago today on May 12, 1967. On that day, the LP “Are You Experienced” by The Jimi Hendrix Experience was released. People had been hearing about him but not a lot had seen him yet.
When the Monterey Pop Festival was being put together in 1967, The Beatles’ Paul McCartney agreed to help with the festival providing that Hendrix would be on the bill. When The Jimi Hendrix Experience played Monterey, they didn’t have a album released in the US.
The US version, with a different cover was released on Aug.16th.
Happy 51st Birthday to Jimi Hendrix’s first LP “Are You Experienced”!!! Do you remember the first time you became ‘experienced’?
