On Wednesday Jimi Hendrix Planned to Change Musical Direction? was a top story. Here is the recap: (Classic Rock) Jimi Hendrix aimed to sound like Earth Wind & Fire later did, says his sister Janie. She believes the multi-genre outfit, which formed a year before the guitar icon's death, best matches the description he gave for the sound he was looking for.
And she's offered a glimpse of upcoming Hendrix posthumous album People, Hell and Angels, while reporting there's much more to come from his estate's temperature-controlled vault.
Speaking during a promotional campaign to raise funds for Jimi Hendrix Park in Seattle, Janie tells KISW : "What he was trying to do was create this new sound. He told my dad: 'You're going to be doubly proud of me.'
"He was bringing all these instruments like he did at Woodstock. The way he was describing it in 1969 was what Earth Wind & Fire became. That's what we would have had: richer, bigger bands with more sounds and more cultures. There would have been a definite evolution." - more on this story
