Jimi Hendrix' Purple Haze Day


It was 1966, Jimi Hendrix put pen to paper and expanded all of our minds. Inspired not by LSD but a lifelong love of the stories of far flung worlds with trippy creatures like those spawned by Philip Jose Farmer, he wrote the psychedelic epic " Purple Haze". It hit the airwaves March of '67, three months later Jimi and The Experience were playing it at the Monterey Pop Festival. Here's the story of the story that inspired the song and if you think about it, a way of life for awhile in the world. Here we are 55 years later with the world gripped in a similar state of chaos, and Jimi's still there for us. 1067WLLZ.com/listen
