Today, 48 years ago, Jimi Hendrix made his final live appearance in Germany when he appears at the Isle Of Fehmarn. 12 days later, on September 18th, the guitarist died in Kensington, London. Hendrix is one of the most influential guitarists of the 60’s and described by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as “arguably the greatest instrumentalist in the history of rock music.” Hendrix struggled with poor health due to overworking, extreme lack of sleep and illness for some days before his death and also experienced frustration about his personal relationships and disillusionment with the music industry. Hendrix spent much of his last day with German figure skater and painter, Monika Dannemann.
