("Time Line") There were many great musicians in the 20th century, and some people believe that they have had a greater influence than Jimi Hendrix on rock today.
There were the Beatles, Elvis Presley, the Rolling Stones and many other... It was a quaint little town that was an exciting place to live.
Then Jimi dropped out of high school to join the army.
He was only in the army for about 3 months because he got injured during a mission and was discharged.
Straford also had fields and woods surrounding it that gave William the opportunity to hunt and trap small game.
The River Avon which ran through the town allowed him to fish also.
Jimi formed his last band called Band Of Gypsys and they played a few big concerts in 1970.
Then Jimi played his biggest concert in front of 500,000 people at the Atlanta Pop Festival on July 4, 1970.
Jimi Hendrix's last concert was at the Isle of Fehmarn in Germany.
Jimi died on September 18, 1970 and just the day before Jimi wrote his last song entitled "The Story of Life".
