On a brighter note, I like this cover of Little Wing. Wonder if I could get Jess to be like a Paladin spokesperson. Bet that would boost our following.

Great concert!!!!!
That must have been quite an experience (see what I did there?). Being born in 1971 I missed out on Jimi, but I can say that Red Rocks is a great place to see a show. In '89 I visited friends in Colorado and made sure to catch a concert.

That's a good one, but seriously, check out the Stevie Ray Vaughan version. Your vid is certainly better to look at, but man, Stevie was a master.

What is interesting about the timing here is that yesterday (not knowing about this thread until a minute ago) I had the three Jimi Hendrix Experience albums on shuffle and decided that's what I want played at my funeral.

I was born in 67 but my mother went to a Hendrix show a short time before I was born, so in a way I guess I have been to one of his shows!!

As far as Red Rocks I've seen The Dave Matthews Band there and it's truly a great place to see a show. And DMB rocked the place that night!!

So I spoke to my mom tonight and she said she first saw Jimi at a Cat Steven's concert sometime in February or March of 67 in London. She was so impressed that she went again a few days after I was born to see him at the Hollywood Bowl!! 

Mom is the coolest, she turned me on to Led Zeppelin, Jefferson Airplane, Fleetwood Mac, Journey, and U2!

LOL, can't believe I missed Hendrix at the Hollywood Bowl!!! Then again I was only a few days old  Dodgy

Wow, man, your Mom is pretty cool.  

My girlfriend treated me to go see Robert Plant at the Greek last year.  He didn't do that many Zeppelin songs, and of those he hardly did any "straight".  But at one point, a guitar and mandolin started playing the opening bars of "Going to California" and he did it totally note for note like it was on Zep IV.  For a few brief shining minutes, we all got to close our eyes and feel like we were watching Zeppelin in 1972...

Yeah I've seen Plant 3 times two of which were when he refused to play any Zeppelin, there were teases but nothing more, the last time though he must of played about 10 or so. One of my biggest regrets is never having seen Led Zeppelin live. If you haven't watched Celebration Day which was a tribute concert for Atlantic Rocords founder Ahmed Ertegun I can't recommend it enough, great playlist and even at their ages Plant and Page were both amazing. Jason Bonham played on drums and was very impressive.

You are right of course that Brian Jones was 27 but I think the 3rd is Hendrix as I think Jimi,Janis, and Jim all died within the same year.  I could be wrong but I'll tell you this as a blues lover I loved and still miss Janis RIP to all the above

I cannot say that I was around for the 60's (unfortunate I know I missed some great times) but I was brought up following The Grateful Dead with my mother. Awesome prizes Ken , very creative and generous of you for putting this on.

Exactly. They could have said that he drowned in wine, but the fact is that he had drunk it already, so technically it was vomit.

What many people has wrong is that his death was drug related. There was not a trace of any drug in the toxicology report.

This should be fine inspiration for a new brush handle. Could be named Bomber!
