Photo: Jimi Hendrix, 1967 by Linda McCartney
In the late 60s, Jimi Hendrix shattered the notion of what the electric guitar could be. On stage he was simultaneously self-possessed and otherworldly, playing the guitar with his teeth and behind his back, even setting it on fire. He took standard blues and changed it through psychedelic sonic alchemy, mining the depths of the instrument’s poetic expressiveness by testing its physical limits.
His photo is on view with 100 others as part of the National Portrait Gallery’s "American Cool" exhibition, exploring one of our greatest cultural exports: that elusive quality of charismatic self-possession that we call “cool”

NEVER stack records in piles! It might kill the bottom ones, if there is any harder dust inside the sleeve.
