Al Hendrix and new pals at Jimi's grave, 1980.

Grave of Jimi Hendrix

I decided to visit the grave of my hero, Jimi Hendrix, on September 18, 1980 -- 10 years from the day the Master left us. I met his dad, Al, and had a great chat with him and a good few of Jimi's followers as well. I live in Motherwell, Scotland. Cheers.

No purple fountain, but the entire memorial is ringed by lovely purple flowers. Most popular items left: lipstick kisses on the pictures of Jimi, flowers, and guitar picks.
