Hendrix At 70: From Lemmy To Frampton, Legends Sound offTuesday (November 27) marks 70 years since the birth of Jimi Hendrix, the man who changed electric guitar and rock'n'roll forever. For the past few weeks, CBS Local has discussed the man’s impact with musicians who came after him, his peers, and even one of his main inspirations. Everyone felt his influence, whether it was on their guitar playing, or their singing. Some even found a new direction for their life thanks to Jimi.
Hendrix At 70: "I'd Never Seen Anything Like It In My Life" - Jon Anderson Of Yes"I saw him playing with The Experience at a small club in Munich, about 250 people. He'd just released (his debut single) 'Hey Joe,' the album was coming out that month. It was remarkable, the energy that was coming off stage, I’d never seen anyting like it in my life, and I’d seen a lot of people by then." - Jon Anderson
Jon Anderson Talks Rick Wakeman, Trevor Rabin, Football"Rick’s recording as we speak," Anderson says. "He said he’d send me some music this month or next month. And then I would send it to Trevor. We’d actually written a couple of songs, me and Trevor, and me and Rick have written a couple." Last time, Anderson said he couldn't imagine an Anderson/Wakeman/Rabin tour, but he may have warmed up to the idea. If they do tour, fans shouldn't expect a Yes "greatest hits" show.
