The
five-week, cross-country Experience Hendrix tour of music greats paying homage
to the music and legacy of Jimi Hendrix 
kicks off in New Hampshire
on October 14. Just announced as being added to the tour at selected shows:
Mike McCready of Pearl Jam, Aerosmith’s Brad Whitford, Robby Krieger of the
Doors, Cesar Rosas and David Hidalgo of Los Lobos, blues scion Bernard Allison,
Texas blues
rocker and Eric Clapton sidekick Doyle Bramhall II and Kid Rock guitarist
 Kenny Olson.  

 
Previously announced were Buddy Guy, Eric Johnson, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Hubert
Sumlin, Jonny Lang, Mato Nanji of Indigenous, Double Trouble’s Chris Layton,
along with Billy Cox (Jimi Hendrix Experience/Jimi Hendrix Band of Gypsys) and
Mitch Mitchell (Jimi Hendrix Experience). Cox recently commented to Rolling Stone, “Nothing can
compare to playing with the original master. But this tour is helping to
validate the musical genius that I knew, by bringing Jimi Hendrix into the new
millennium.”

Presented by Experience
Hendrix, LLC, the Hendrix family-owned company founded by James A. “Al”
Hendrix, Jimi’s father, entrusted with preserving and protecting the legacy of
Jimi Hendrix together with musical instrument giant Gibson Guitar, this year’s
Experience Hendrix Tour represents a dramatic expansion beyond last year’s
seven sold out performances.

Various combinations of these
music greats will be performing music associated with Jimi Hendrix on level or
another including Hendrix’s own compositions including “Purple Haze,” “The Wind
Cries Mary,” “Little Wing,” “Red House”) as well as other songs that Hendrix
performed or recorded as well as roots material that had a demonstrative
influence on Hendrix’s own musical development. Notes Experience Hendrix Tour
producer John McDermott, “The line-up for this tour reflects the breadth of
Jimi’s ongoing influence that reaches down through the generations. The guests
that have been attracted to participate are, to a man, enthusiastic about the
proposition of performing with their counterparts. That mindset underscores the
fact that the Experience Hendrix tour is all about musical camaraderie and the
recognition that Jimi Hendrix, undeniably, casts the longest shadow in the
realm of great music and great musicians.”
