Johnny Allen Hendrix

Johnny Allen Hendrix

“Jimi came on very quietly to enormous applause. Then he said softly into the microphone, ‘This number is for a friend of mine.’ He then  began  an  improvisation  that  had  a  beauty  that  was  simply  appalling. Immediately  everyone  knew  that  the  friend  was  Martin Luther  King  Jr.,  and  this  music  somehow  seemed  to  convey  all  the agony  of  the  black  people.  The  whole  audience  was  weeping.  Even the  stagehands  just  stood  there  with  tears  streaming  down  their faces. It was a lament for a great man, but it was the most harrowing lament, beyond anyone’s imagining. When he finished there was no applause. Everyone in this vast crowd just sat or stood sobbing, and Jimi laid his guitar down and walked quietly off the stage.”

“You hear the sound in your head or your heart, and you send a message to your fingers. That’s my technique.” He smiled at me. “On a good night, it works.”
