JIMI THINGS (LOTS OF THEM)
As any patron of Guitar Center will tell you, get a crop of guitarists in one room and they will immediately produce the variously botched intro to Stairway to Heaven first, and then a Hendrix lick. And then another. The mad hippie conjurer is still the idol of six-stringers the world over (though, really, his ragged voice slayed it, too); enjoy this orgiastic fervor of all his disciples, by pros who can truly wail on their axes, at Experience Hendrix, an appropriately boho one-night stand featuring Billy Cox, Steve Vai, Susan Tedeschi, Jonny Lang, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, and more. Its like the Oprah giveaway of rock concerts—You get a Little Wing solo! And you get a Little Wing solo!—and you know what? Itll probably be pretty spectacular.
