Overview

In 1969, after revolutionizing the world of rock music and changing the rules about how the electric guitar could be played with his group the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Jimi Hendrix was looking for new musical challenges and different perspectives. With this in mind, Hendrix formed a new group, Band of Gypsies, with bassist Billy Cox and drummer Buddy Miles. The group made their debut with four shows at New York's Filmore East on December 31, 1969, and January 1, 1970, which were recorded for a live album. One of the shows was also videotaped (in black-and-white), and this documentary combines concert footage from the Filmore performance with interviews in which several of Hendrix's collaborators discuss working with him, and a number of noted rock musicians -- including Lenny Kravitz, former Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash, and Living Colour leader Vernon Reid -- share their thoughts on Hendrix's influence and musical legacy.
