On the anniversary of Jimi Hendrix’s death

RIP Jimi Hendrix, who died in London on September 18, 1970. A year before his death, Dick Cavett asked Hendrix if music had meaning.

Jimi Hendrix: Oh, yeah, definitely, it’s getting to be more spiritual than anything now. Pretty soon I believe that they’re gonna … have to rely on music to … get some kind of peace of mind, or satisfaction – direction, actually – more so than politics, because like politics is really … a big fat ego scene – the art of words which mean nothing. Therefore, you have to rely on a more earthier substance, like music or the arts, theatre, you know, acting, painting, whatever.
