Jimi Hendrix, born James Allen Hendrix (November 27, 1942 - September 18, 1970) was a musician and songwriter who was born in Seattle, Washington. He died only four years after he became famous, the victim of an accidental barbiturate overdose and asphyxia related to that overdose. Despite the brevity of his career, he is almost universally seen as a revolutionary guitarist and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, where he was described as "arguably the greatest instrumentalist in the history of rock music."
