Classick: Jimi Hendrix

"Let me stand next to your fire"

This 1967 painting by Martin Sharp essentially sums up everything there is to say about Hendrix, so instead of writing wasted words, check out a segment of his performance from the Monterey International Pop Festival from the same year. If you watch closely, you can almost see the colors exploding from his guitar. Coincidently the painting was recently featured in the NY Times and is currently on display at the Whitney Museum in NYC through September 16th.
