Youtube do dia: Jimi Hendrix

September 18, 1970: The sudden, tragic death at the age of 27 in London of an absolute musical genius, Jimi Hendrix.

There was a terrific profile of Hendrix written by Ed Vulliamy for The Observer and published last month. I'll pay tribute simply by embedding the following video of Hendrix performing "Little Wing" live at the Albert Hall in 1969. (Last month I posted Stevie Ray Vaughan's cover of the same song to mark the twentieth anniversary of his death.)
