  2. GARY D. BRYANT Says:

    I was stationed in Vietnam when I heard to tragic news of Jimi’s death and was completely stunned. Jimi was definitely the greatest guitar player that I had ever heard and his music I can relate to even to this day! I sure miss him and I am sure that there are legions of others that feel the same. He was the master of feedback and master of the fender stratocaster! God Bless him!

    I saw Jimi all 3 times he visited San Antonio Tx. The 1st was good but the 2nd & 3rd were GREAT! Mainly because I got to meet & party until sunrise with him and actually did some roadie work. My very f\1st job was to get his Strat out of the truck & carry onstage in front of his amp. I remember it well. It was in a cardboard box with a paper tag hanging off the tuners that read: Jimi Hendrix. A cardboard box! With this blond neck sticking out. I remember walking & watching that paper tag spin in the wind & thinking to myself “God? Please don’t let me forget this” And I haven’t. I’ve worked for 3 Dog Night, Jeff Beck, & The Rolling Stones, but Jimi was hands down the Best! Most personable & knock-down funnyiest celebrity I’ve ever met!
    And imagine my surprise a year later, when he returned & upon seeing him in the hotel lobby not only did he remember my name, but what albums we had listened to!! Indeed the Wind Cries. Damn we miss you Jimi, the silence is deafening.
