Yes a long long time ago but it was a phase and now they don't. IIt's safe to say that they did. I know all of them had a strong appetite for booze and cocaine. And Jimmy Page got pretty heavy into heroin by the late 70s.

Jimi used Fuzz Face units along with 100watt Marshall stacks. For the most part He used at least 3 100watt heads & 6 4x12 speker cabs. Sometimes he used fender amps and at times used sound city speker cabs. The amps were turned up all the way witch helped get that sound.
Original Answer: The guitar was bought by Daniel Boucher, a U.S. collector and dealer based in Boston.
^^ incorrect, Boucher bought the FIRST guitar Jimi lit on fire -- which happened in London before coming back to America and playing the monterey pop festival.
The famous guitar played and destroyed at the monterey pop festival is on display in a Jimi Hendrix exhibit at the "Experience Music Project" museum in Seattle, Washington.

While Jimi Hendrix was in the army he was ranked Private
he was actually an E-4 specialist and later demoted with an article 15 to private for masturbating in the company area.
The man himself could not answer this question! n
As far as I know he taught himself guitar by practicing almost constantly, watching others play, through tips from more experienced players, and by listening to records. But not so sure about slide guitar and I'm pretty sure the only time he was recorded playing slide was in All Along the Watchtower.
Apparently it was at Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club...

slash from guns n roses is the best guitarist alive. havent you heard his solos
Playing fast solos does not necessarily mean that your a great guitarist. I myself can play extremely fast solos and have it sound awesome, without much effort. Hendrix's style of playing was unique and had meaning in each note. Now that's what made him such a gifted guitarist. - Havok
He played his famous and psychedelic version of the Star Spangled Banner at Woodstock.
The "G" in a G major scale is the starting pitch (also: root, tonic). "Major" tells you the steps you take when playing the scale up to the next G. The distance jumped between notes give a scale its character. A major scale sounds like the do-re-mi scale. Other scales, like minor scales, can sound sad.
The "major" refers to the root chord you play. If it's major (G,B,D), the distance between the G and the B (major third) sounds bright. If it's minor (G, Bb, D), the third is flattened, so it tends to sound sadder.
A major scale is made up of a chunk of 3 whole step notes (G, A, B) followed by another chunk of 4 whole step notes (C, D, E, F#). These two chunks are a half step apart. (B-C).
Whole steps are steps with a key wedged between them. For example, G->A is a whole step because there is one black key between them. A half step has no key between notes. B->C is an example. So is F#->G.
No, that would be Burton Cummings, and it was written by the Canadian band "The Guess Who" as the title track to their 1970 album "American Woman". Also another cover that people mistake for Jimi Hendrix is the Lenny Kravitz version. Jimi Hendrix did NOT cover this song.
According to Rolling Stone magazine, a sealed original LP copy of Electric Ladyland is worth over $250.00 on the open market.
Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin both performed in Seattle. Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and the Steve Miller Band Sicks Stadium, Seattle, July 26, 1970. Eat your hearts out! It was Jimi's last visit home to Seattle. Jimi and Janis would both die a few months later, both 27 years old. Reference: http://jackbrummet.blogspot.com/2005/09/favorite-rock-and-jazz-shows-1966-last.html
Jimi and Janis were NOT on the same Seattle 1970 concert. Joplin's show was in July 5th, a beautiful Sunday afternoon. Hendrix was July 26th, a raining Sunday in Seattle. I was a both shows.
