Great Moments in Vinyl plays tribute to Jimi Hendrix

March 3, 2018 • Wire • Berwyn, IL

The man’s career can only be described in superlatives.  Best.  Greatest.  Most innovative.  Most influential.  According to The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Jimi Hendrix was “arguably the greatest instrumentalist in the history of rock”, while Rolling Stone put him at the top of their list of “The 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.”  

Great Moments in Vinyl returns to Wire for a narrated concert featuring two of Jimi Hendrix’s most widely acclaimed recordings, his debut releases Are You Experienced and Axis: Bold as Love.

Credit for coming up with the band name goes to one of Jimi's managers.  It was he who recognized what was in store for listeners.  This was not music you would simply listen to and walk away from.  It was going to be an “experience.”
