1
00:00:33,773 --> 00:00:37,418
September 24th, 1966,

2
00:00:37,477 --> 00:00:40,894
un unknown figure touches down
in the streets of London

3
00:00:40,978 --> 00:00:46,150
with only a Fender Stratocaster
and a few dollars to his name.

4
00:00:50,792 --> 00:00:52,860
Within days of his arrival,

5
00:00:52,939 --> 00:00:58,010
Jimi Hendrix would turn
the world of music upside down.

6
00:01:02,386 --> 00:01:04,264
Jimi changed the sound of the guitar.

7
00:01:04,318 --> 00:01:06,852
I think in many respects he changed

8
00:01:06,891 --> 00:01:08,975
the sound of rock far
more than The Beatles.

9
00:01:09,058 --> 00:01:12,111
He called himself
a 'voodoo child',

10
00:01:12,150 --> 00:01:15,038
a virtuoso, who in just four
short years,

11
00:01:15,118 --> 00:01:17,701
will take the blues from
the Mississippi delta

12
00:01:17,768 --> 00:01:21,125
to the psychedelic limits
of outer space.

13
00:01:21,369 --> 00:01:23,680
He redefined what it meant
to be a guitar player,

14
00:01:23,753 --> 00:01:26,464
what it meant to be a musician,

15
00:01:26,498 --> 00:01:28,454
I think he redefined what
it meant to be an artist

16
00:01:28,499 --> 00:01:33,309
and he redefined the whole period
in which he existed.

17
00:01:38,014 --> 00:01:40,077
All that stuff that was going on
in the 60s

18
00:01:40,136 --> 00:01:42,534
is channeled through
Jimi Hendrix's music.

19
00:01:42,613 --> 00:01:46,668
You can hear Martin Luther King
being shot in his music,

20
00:01:46,712 --> 00:01:51,264
you can hear bombs falling
on Vietnam in his music,

21
00:01:51,317 --> 00:01:55,891
you can hear bombs exploding in the heads
of an entire generation on LSD

22
00:01:55,931 --> 00:01:57,872
in the music of Jimi Hendrix.

23
00:02:01,944 --> 00:02:05,076
In the end, he himself
will become a victim

24
00:02:05,164 --> 00:02:07,351
of the dark side of the era.

25
00:02:07,431 --> 00:02:10,016
His tragic death bringing
a symbolic end

26
00:02:10,095 --> 00:02:13,129
to the tumultuous 60s.

27
00:02:15,713 --> 00:02:19,694
This is a journey into
the first Age of Rock

28
00:02:19,767 --> 00:02:23,061
seen through the eyes
of his most dazzling icon...

29
00:02:23,139 --> 00:02:25,875
Jimi Hendrix.

30
00:02:42,940 --> 00:02:45,669
When Jimi Hendrix,
a left hander

31
00:02:45,733 --> 00:02:48,619
who played a right handed
guitar upside down,

32
00:02:48,669 --> 00:02:52,763
made his first explosive appearance
in London in 1966,

33
00:02:52,831 --> 00:02:57,254
he sent shockwaves through
the aristocracy of British music.

34
00:03:00,616 --> 00:03:04,149
# Purple Haze all in my brain,

35
00:03:04,450 --> 00:03:07,966
# lately things don't seem the same,

36
00:03:09,139 --> 00:03:12,355
# actin' funny but I don't know why

37
00:03:13,501 --> 00:03:16,757
# 'scuse me while I kiss the sky.

38
00:03:19,906 --> 00:03:21,851
I saw him perform with everybody else.

39
00:03:21,900 --> 00:03:24,841
With Eric Clapton, boy, you name it,
they were there.

40
00:03:24,846 --> 00:03:27,364
He came on the stage and
it was just mindblowing.

41
00:03:27,403 --> 00:03:32,685
And I think Eric's comment
after Jimi played was,

42
00:03:32,739 --> 00:03:34,665
"Well, I'm off home
to practice."

43
00:03:37,318 --> 00:03:39,880
I was just glad
I wasn't a guitarist.
