Jimi Hednrix passed away at the age of 27 in 1970. He released 3 albums while he was alive, and various record companies have released many more, since his death.
Hendrix was left-handed. He used right-handed guitars - Stratocasters - turned upside-down for left-hand playing, and re-strung so that the heavier strings were in their standard position at the top of the neck. This had an important effect on his guitar sound: because of the slant of the Strat's bridge pickup, his lowest string had a bright sound while his highest string had a mellow sound, the opposite of the Stratocaster's intended design.
