Despite only being in the mainstream for four years, Hendrix built an unbreakable legacy that made him one of the most influential musicians.

The Seattle native, born on Nov. 27, 1942, got his first guitar at age 15. He joined the military before embarking on a musical career and became known for classics like “Purple Haze” and “Voodoo Child (Slight Return).” Hendrix headlined the first Woodstock festival in 1969 before his life was tragically cut short at the age of 27.
