Hard Rock Seattle Celebrates Hendrix’s 70th Birthday

To celebrate what would have been Jimi Hendrix’s 70th birthday on Nov. 27, the Hard Rock Cafe in his hometown of Seattle, Wash., hosted a special party for the legendary guitarist’s fans, family and friends.

Janie Hendrix, Jimi’s sister, was on hand to chat with fans and offer access to the recently-released Jimi Hendrix: The Ultimate Lyric Book, which she compiled. The book is a collection of previously-unseen songs, pictures and lyrics.

In addition, a unique Fender Stratocaster was on display.  Hendrix collaborated on the guitar with artist Alan Aldridge before his untimely death, and the idea finally came to fruition in recent years.

All proceeds from the event went towards the Jimi Hendrix Park Foundation.  For more information, visit the official website of the Jimi Hendrix Park Foundation.
