Born Johnny Allen Hendrix on this date in 1942 and later renamed James Marshall by his father, little Jimmy became Jimi in 1966 when his manager recognized the creativity and drive that would launch this electric guitar pioneer to a whole other level of musical history.
His dietary interests were fairly ordinary though. When asked about his favorite foods during an interview with Disc and Music Echo magazine, he replied: “Spaghetti, strawberry shortcake with whipped cream, and banana cream pie. I like typical soul food too – greens and rice.”
I like those things too but can’t play a lick. So thanks for the musical genius, Jimi. I guess it must’ve been something in the water.
Happy Birthday, Jimi Hendrix
