Hey Joe - Jimi Hendrix

Hey Joe

The Ultimate Experience
classic rock rock 60s blues guitar


Hey Joe is Hendrix at his best of introducing modern versions of old black blues classic lyrics and themes with his own brand of electric guitar. The Hey Joe Songfacts says: There have been countless versions of "Hey Joe" but the version that inspired Hendrix to record this came from a Folk singer named Tim Rose, who played it in a slow arrangement on his 1967 debut album. Rose was a popular singer/songwriter for a short time in the Greenwich Village scene, but quickly faded into obscurity before a small comeback in the '90s. He died in 2002 at age 62.


James Marshall "Jimi" Hendrix (born Johnny Allen Hendrix; 27th November at Seattle's King County Hospital, 1942 - 18th September 1970) was a U.S. guitarist, singer, and songwriter. Hendrix was not very popular in the U.S.A. at the outset of his musical career, only later gaining recognition after taking a trip to England in 1966 with The Animals' Chas Chandler, where he subsequently formed The Jimi Hendrix Experience with bassist Noel Redding and drummer Mitch Mitchell.
