Picture of the Day - Jimi Hendrix

A nice Jimi Hendrix watercolor. He could play. Who can forget his dramatic virtuoso rendition of The Star Spangled Banner at Woodstock on a screeching electric guitar that simulated the sounds of bombs dropping, explosions blasting, and machine guns firing, combined with the melody line of America's national anthem presented as an avante-garde work of musical art before the huge gathering of spellbound American youth. An iconic performance at an iconic event during the tumultuous 1960s.
