Traditional New Year’s tune
Jimi Hendrix – “Auld Lang Syne (Live at Fillmore East)”
Although there are thousands of renditions of this traditional New Year’s tune, one of the most notable is Jimi Hendrix’s performance at Fillmore East, December 31st, 1969. It was the last New Year’s Eve Hendrix would ever see, and the apex of his career. His guitar solo, which is glorious in its melancholy, is as crucial to his legacy as it should be to your New Year’s playlist.
James Marshall Hendrix (born Johnny Allen Hendrix; November 27, 1942 – September 18, 1970) was an American musician, singer and songwriter. Despite a limited mainstream exposure of four years, he is widely considered to have been the greatest electric guitarist in the history of popular music, and one of the most important musicians of the 20th century.
