Did Jimi Hendrix Work for Other Famous Musicians?

Jimi Hendrix was a famous musician who revolutionized the use of the electric guitar. Hendrix used a mix of feedback, fuzz and controlled distortion to change the way the electric guitar was used and played.

Hendrix played with several different bands and marquee acts before beginning his tour, performing in what was named The Jimi Hendrix Experience.
