Jimi Hendrix

Jimi Hendrix maybe single handedly redefined rock music and changed the sound of popular music whose reverberations are still being felt today.  Releasing three million selling album during his lifetime, which Rolling Stone ranked the band’s three studio albums as among the 100 greatest albums of all time. Rolling Stone also rank Hendrix as the greatest guitarist and the sixth greatest artist of all time.  Before his death in 1970, Jimi was the world’s highest-paid performer who pioneered the use of his guitar and changed every guitar player approach to his instrument.  It’s been 44 years since Jimi Hendirx pasted away but with about a dozen posthumous albums released and multiple films and documentaries, Jimi is just as popular today as he was during his lifetime.  Posters of Jimi Hendrix still adorn musicians and fans’ wall alike and here at Limited Runs we have some special rare and limited edition posters.  Here are some you should check out.
