Michigan’s own Drew32 has released a stream of the song “JIMI,” which is a reimagining of Jimi Hendrix’s own “All Along the Watchtower.” Please read the artist’s personal statement regarding the influence of Hendrix and listen to “JIMI” through the jump!
“A short 42 years ago, rock and roll lost somebody special. Jimi Hendrix is a legend, and in his memory, I decided to release a song I recorded called “JIMI”. My favorite Jimi Hendrix song has always been his version of “All Along the Watchtower”, so I decided to sample it and make my own version. I wrote this while on a plane to Los Angeles earlier this year, and actually recorded it out there at DJ Skee’s “Skee Lodge” in Hollywood, California. Enjoy.”
