The Jimi Hendrix Experience in 1968

Guitarist Jim Hendrix (center) is flanked by drummer Mitch Mitchell and bassist Noel Redding in this 1968 photo of their band, The Jimi Hendrix Experience. The short-lived band (1966-69) had a major impact on rock history; they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1992. Hendrix was also, sadly, short-lived: he died at age 27 in 1970.
