‘Are You Experienced?’

Live version because YouTube wouldn’t cough up the regular version. Weird. Anyway, yes, I know what day it is.

‘Purple Haze.’

I’m putting this on because I found my recent music purchases… alarming.  Time for some Jimi to counteract that.

Are You Experienced?, Jimi Hendrix

Have you ever been experienced? – Wait, no, probably you shouldn’t answer that.

It probably makes more sense if you’re stoned – most of the stuff from the Sixties seems to – but the tune’s nice.

Don’t do drugs, kids.


Are You Experienced?, Jimi Hendrix

Seriously. We lost about twenty, thirty years’ worth of top-shelf material there.

Newest tool for educators: Jimi Hendrix.

“Hey,” said Garcia. “We’re in San Francisco.”

Don’t get me wrong.  I spent quite a lot of time listening to Jimi Hendrix at high volume in college: …but that was when I was in the dorm room. A little weird to bring that spirit into the classroom, no?

There was a time when teachers would freak at the sound of Jimi Hendrix’s “Purple Haze” or “Stone Free.” Now the San Francisco school district wants them to get in the spirit.

(Via Joanne Jacobs) I mean, come on. Drug overdose. You have to expect that people are going to bring that particular life decision up when it comes time to discuss what the man had to teach us about existence.
