Jimi Hendrix – The Star Spangled Banner (Live at Woodstock 1969)


To wrap up our Woodstock anniversary celebration, and also to celebrate Shilin and I’s personal anniversary, here is one of the most mentioned performance from the festival. Just before 11 AM on August 18th, 1969 roughly half of the 400,000 people had left the crowd to return home. The die-hard fans stayed to see Jimi make his guitar cry America’s nation anthem. I would have been one of them if I was alive then, because Mr. Hendrix is an absolute god of rock and anyone should feel honored to have gotten to see him perform.
