What does this song mean to you? Hendrix
 
I would like to know what your thoughts on in this song are. What it literally means, and what it means for music today.

I feel like we as a people have taken a massive step back when it comes to music. Our kids or grandkids are listening to Kanye and Justin Beiber, which both are a ****ing joke. If only we could show them just how cool this guy was, much less the countless others who came before and after him. I remember watching old films on WOODSTOCK going wow, I could have went! I am talking real music. The kind that actually made you think, joint or not.

90% of people think Hendrix ODd on Heroine. Hendrix never took Heroine, yet it was said he drowned of red wine in his autopsy. I know, Conspiracy Thoery but I feel Hendrix never died of such a thing, but was killed.

He choked on his own vomit when he was drunk.

His autopsy stated he died off of red wine. How much Red Wine must one drink to drown in it? Way more than it takes to kill a man, I will tell you that.

His manager was fishy, I will give him that. Guy looked like he came straight out of Goodfellas.

That created the legend. The Star Spangled Banner however made him much more.

The actual meaning of the song is pretty straightforward. He was an outcast in high school. Wanted out of his hometown and would come back after he was famous and "buy the town" and show them. That is what he in fact did. He dropped out joined army. After he was famous his high school invited him back. He came back and showed everyone.

Love this song people wonder why it wasn't recorded until after his death even though he had been performing in for years before. I truly believe it was one of his most personal songs and that's why he didn't sell it.

From what I heard, Hendrix had tons of heroines. Even got plaster-casted by one.

According to comedian Bill Hicks, he died in a pool of his own vomit.

Do you realize how much you have to puke to fill up a pool??

:rotfl:

Little Wing and Voodoo Chile are my favorite Hendrix songs as well as All Along the Watchtower...

Easy Rider, If 6 was 9, My Friend, and Somewhere are my favorites. But Villanova Junction at the end of Woodstock is awesome.
