Theme Thursday - Fire



This week's video is Jimi Hendrix playing "Fire" at Woodstock. This has my all-time favorite Rock lyric line: "Move over, Rover, and let Jimi take over!" Gotta love it! (And yes, Jimi is definitely one of the gods of my youth!)

  3. Not a fire song, but my fave Jimi is "All Along the Watchtower". I didn't grow up with him (born in '61), but that song is on the soundtrack to a film I love called "Withnail & I".

    Enjoyed your post.

  4. Move over, Rover, and let Jimi take over!

    Poet:: Bob Dylan wrote "Watchtower." He liked Jimi's rendition so much that he always performs some variation of it. Listen to Dylan's original version here.

  5. Despite the incredibly convoluted management of Hendrix' catalog, there is a lot of top-flight live material available on CD, including his entire Woodstock set. I'm especially partial to Band of Gypsies Live At The Fillmore East, which is a 2CD expanded edition of the original Band Of Gypsies album.

  6. Like your candle pics.

    Even though I'm of the era, I was never a Hendrix fan. I preferred Joplin.

  7. I have to see, I like both, but I tend to favor the out of focus candles behind the one in focus. I'm just not sure why.

  13. Beautiful photo!

    I posted a Janice Joplin video a while ago. Janice and Jimmy, both lost way too early. Would have loved to see where their careers took them in later years.

  15. Glad to see you polished the tray before taking the photo! Nice candles . .I love candles. Actually All Along the Watchtower is my fave. My mother thought he was a talentless idiot . . . none so blind as those who cannot see!

  16. Fabulous video - Hendrix was one of my favorites back in art school. He burned out way too young...

  18. I'm almost sure it's not an apocryphal family story that my parents really finally decided they loved each other after experiencing the Monterey Pop Festival together.

    If not for that, where would I be?

  20. Ah yes! The original "flaming guitar" man! Well, in my book any-way! Cool post!

  21. I LOVE those candle pictures. Nicely done!

  22. Man O Man! There's something almost supernatural about his--'connection with his guitar' ain't quite strong enough. It's like he has a guitar shaped part of his brain in his hands.

    Believe it or not, I hadn't seen this one before. Thanks, Roy.

    The candles, a very nice lead-in, too.

  24. I think we will always be left to wonder what if. Sometimes the talented are taken away while so young. Thank you for the video.

    I really liked the candle pictures. They really are so peaceful to look at.

    Thank you for sharing them with us.

    God bless.
