Youtube do dia: More from Jimi

As we pay tribute this weekend on the 40th anniversary of the death of Jimi Hendrix, I've embedded a video of probably his most famous live performance, from Woodstock, NY in 1969, his rendition of John Stafford Smith's 1778 composition "To Anacreon In Heaven".

You may know it better as that song about Bombs Bursting In Air. I blogged more about its history on the occasion of May Day 2006, but for now, take it away Jimi:

Youtube do dia: Stevie Ray Vaughan

August 27, 1990 - one of the great guitarists of the era, Stevie Ray Vaughan, was dead at the age of 35, his helicopter crashing shortly after completing a concert in Wisconsin.

Twenty years after his passing, here is a brilliant live performance by SRV of Jimi Hendrix's "Little Wing" (and more about its composer as September 18 rolls around). Got seven minutes to spare right now? Enjoy this.
