Good back story information, more here. "Purple Haze" came to him in a dream after he had read a science fiction novel. Fans and critics have spent years trying to decipher the song's meaning. Hendrix himself pointed to the one line at the end of the second verse: "Never happy or in misery / Whatever it is, that girl put a spell on me."

Apparently at one time he had 1,000 words of lyrics for this one. Probably for the best that he narrowed it down!

The myth, the man, the legend. Today we celebrate Jimi Hendrix's birthday, he should still be here, he should still be jamming out on the guitar. I always... See More

@jaxilla 74 and still jamming. Possibilities are totally endless. In a parallel universe somewhere he is still rocking out, I can feel it.
