James Marshall "Jimi" Hendrix (born Johnny Allen Hendrix; November 27, 1942 – September 18, 1970) was an American musician and singer-songwriter. He is still widely considered to be the greatest electric guitarist in music history, and one of the most influential musicians of his era even though he was only in the mainstream for three years.
After initial success in Europe with his group The Jimi Hendrix Experience, he achieved fame in the United States following his 1967 performance at the Monterey Pop Festival. Later, Hendrix headlined the iconic 1969 Woodstock Festival and the 1970 Isle of Wight Festival. He often favored raw overdriven amplifiers with high gain and treble and helped develop the previously undesirable technique of guitar amplifier feedback. Hendrix, as well as his friend Eric Clapton, popularized use of the wah-wah pedal in mainstream rock which he often used to deliver an exaggerated sense of pitch in his solos, particularly with high bends, complex guitar playing, and use of legato. As a record producer, Hendrix also broke new ground in using the recording studio as an extension of his musical ideas. He was one of the first to experiment with stereophonic phasing effects for rock recording.[citation needed] Hendrix was influenced by blues artists such as B.B. King, Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Albert King and Elmore James, rhythm and blues and soul guitarists Curtis Mayfield and Steve Cropper, and the jazz guitarist Wes Montgomery. Hendrix began dressing and wearing a moustache like Little Richard when he performed and recorded in his band from March 1, 1964 through to the spring of 1965. In 1966, Hendrix stated, "I want to do with my guitar what Little Richard does with his voice". Hendrix won many prestigious rock music awards in his lifetime, and has been posthumously awarded many more, including being inducted into the US Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1992 and the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2005. An English Heritage blue plaque was erected in his name on his former residence at Brook Street, London, in September 1997. A star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was dedicated in 1994. In 2006, his debut US album, Are You Experienced, was inducted into the United States National Recording Registry, and Rolling Stone named Hendrix the top guitarist on its list of the 100 greatest guitarists of all-time in 2003.

Baron Wolman grew up in Columbus, Ohio, studied philosophy at Northwestern University in Chicago, learned German at the Defense Language School in Monterey, California, and then did a tour with military intelligence in West Berlin.
In Berlin, Wolman sold his first photo essay for publication, a story about life behind the then-new Berlin Wall. From Germany he moved to California to continue his career as a photo journalist. In 1967, a fortuitous meeting with Jann Wenner, the founder of Rolling Stone, resulted in Wolman becoming that publication's first chief photographer. For three years his photographs were published regularly in Rolling Stone and became the magazine's graphic centerpiece. Over forty years later, those same photographs, picture memories of the 60's, are now widely exhibited and collected. In 1970, Wolman left the Stone to start his own magazine, Rags, the "Rolling Stone of fashion." The creative and irreverent monthly featured styles of the times and was an acknowledged journalistic success. Unfortunately, Rags did not survive the recession and publication ceased after only 13 issues. When he was suddenly bitten by the flying bug in the mid-seventies Wolman bought a little Cessna, learned to fly and began doing aerial photography. Collections of his aerial landscapes have appeared in two successful books, “California From the Air: The Golden Coast” and “The Holy Land: Israel From The Air.” For many years his colorful "airscapes" were published annually in his popular "from the air" scenic calendars. Over the years Wolman had become addicted to publishing's "natural high." In 1974, he founded Squarebooks Publishing. With world headquarters now located 60 miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge in Santa Rosa, California, Squarebooks continues its long tradition of publishing an eclectic list of illustrated, quality books. In August 2001, Baron moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico -- to savor its tasty chili-infused cuisine, to marvel at its relentlessly beautiful sunsets, and to revel in the ambiance of its delightfully eccentric, artistic community. With the 2011 publication of his book, “Baron Wolman – The Rolling Stone Years,” Baron and his photographs are once more in great demand, with exhibits and appearances scheduled in cities and countries around the world. His long-time mantra, “Mixing Business With Pleasure Since 1965,” continues to be his guiding light...
