Johnny Allen Hendrix was born on November 27 1942 in Seattle Washington to James Allen "Al" Hendrix and Lucille Jeter. At the age of 3 Al Hendrix changed Johnny Allen Hendrix to James Marshall Hendrix, which was the name that stuck until he became famous. Jimi received his first acoustic guitar in t…he summer of 1958 and it became his constant companion until his death on September 18th, 1970 at the age of 27. James Marshall "Jimi" Hendrix recorded three studio albums (Are you Experienced?, Axis: Bold as Love, and Electric Ladyland), two live albums (Band of Gypsy's and Historic Performances Recorded at the Monterey International Pop Festival) two compilations (Smash Hits and Electric Jimi Hendrix which has never been released) and twelve singles ("Hey Joe", "Purple Haze", "Wind Cries Mary", "Burning of the Midnight Lamp", "Foxey Lady", "Up from the Skies", "All Along the Watchtower", "Crosstown Traffic", "Stone Free", "Fire", "Stepping Stone"and "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)") during his lifetime. Twenty-Five Subsequent albums of live and pre-recorded material have been released since his death, the last being in 2010. Called the Father of Metal, The Father of Modern Rock; Hendrix was what every subsequent guitarist that grew up listening to him would want to be; A Guitar Hero. His flamboyance in fashion, stage presence, and constant musical experimentation opened the doors for a new breadth of guitar based music. His unpredictable personality and steady diet of recreational drugs made him a mythic figure. But ultimately it was his sudden and inexplicable death from a reaction to a combination of sleeping pills and alcohol that left the greatest mark on his friends and fans. Jimi Hendrix was the bestest, fastest, craziest, most rockin' guitar player there was. and will ever be. Could play the guitar insanely with his teeth

No he was atheist. Here's a quote from him. "When I was a little boy, I believed that if you put a tooth underyour pillow, a fairy would come in the night and take away thetooth and leave a dime. Now, I believed in myself more thananything. And, I suppose in a way, that's also believing in God. Ift…here is a God and He made you, then if you believe in yourself,you're also believing in Him. So I think everybody should believein himself. That doesn't mean you've got to believe in heaven andhell and all that stuff. But it does mean that what you are andwhat you do is your religion. I can't express myself in easyconversation-the words just don't come out right. But when I get upon stage-well, that's my whole life. That's my religion. My musicis electric church music, if by 'church' you mean 'religion', I amelectric religion."
