ARE YOU EXPERIENCED? - The Number 1 Tribute To Jimi Hendrix
All Along The Watchtower, Are You Experienced?, Red House, Little Wing, Stone Free, Axis: Bold As Love, Star Spangled Banner, Voodoo Chile (Slight Return), Johnny B. Goode, Foxy Lady
This English tribute band really know their Hendrix. They are fronted by Hendrix impersonator John Campbell who is a very capable and convincing guitarist. He stays very close to Jimi's solos but with clever personnal touches here and there (the intro to "Watchtower" for example). Campbell vocals are little deeper than Jimi's but that doesn't deaden the impact of the interpretations. It must be great fun to see them live as they really have got their sound together.
This can be obtained from their website:
The band were featured recently on British TV for a BBC Arena film "Tribute Bands", about The Limelight club in Crewe, England.
