Jimi Hendrix Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

The late American guitarist, singer and songwriter James Marshall Hendrix was born on 27 November 1942 in the city of Seattle, Washington State US, with Afro-American, Cherokee and Irish ancestry, and  is known as a musician who, through his mainstream career of just four years, managed to gain worldwide recognition as one of the best and most influential guitarists in history. At the time of his death, Hendrix was the best-paid professional entertainer on the planet, and this is certainly reflected in the legendary guitarist’s stunning net worth.

So just how rich was Jimi Hendrix? Sources have estimated that Jimi’s net worth at the time of his death in 1970 was $175 million, accumulated during his short but meteoric career in the music industry.

 

Jimi Hendrix Net Worth $175 Million

Jimi Hendrix was the oldest of his mother’s five children, and was raised at a difficult time. With his father, Al Hendrix, serving in the US Army and denied time off to see his newborn son, Jimi Hendrix was raised largely by his mother – who, in her turn, struggled to cope with motherhood, and often left Jimi in the care of her family and friends. By the time his father returned from the army, Jimi Hendrix was being raised by a family friend living in California. Soon afterwards, his parents reunited, and a troubling childhood followed – with the Hendrix family struggling to get by, and with Jimi’s parents both turning to drink and often fighting. Jimi Hendrix was known to claim that his rough upbringing had a huge effect on him – even his first instrument, a one-stringed ukulele, acted as a sort of security blanket.

Jimi Hendrix would, of course, end up going far past that battered ukulele. Saving up to buy a proper guitar, Hendrix was first noted for his talents when he was serving in the US Army, where he first met his future partner and bassist, Billy Cox. Discharged from the military for unsuitability, Hendrix and Cox went on to found their first band – “King Kasuals”, where Hendrix famously first learned to play the guitar with his teeth. Soon noticed by professional performers, Hendrix would go on to record his first better-known singles with “The Isley Brothers”, and from there he would sign a contract with English musician and record producer Chas Chandler. Hendrix skyrocketed to success in the UK, giving his previously struggling net worth a huge boost, and he would become known as the “Black Elvis” before moving back to take the US by storm. Throughout his career, Jimi Hendrix produced a number of chart-topping Top Ten hits, including “Hey Joe”, and “The Wind Cries Mary”, and received multiple awards and nominations – including a posthumous star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Jimi released only three sudio, three live, and two compilation albums, but the quality of these productions has stood the test of time such that more than 40 years after his passing, he is still recognised as one of the best ever,

By the end of his life in 1970, Hendrix had been a mainstream professional performer for just four years, but his popularity and net worth had both risen to astounding heights.

Jimi Hendrix lives on in memory as one of the greatest legends of 20th century music.

Jimi Hendrix died on 18 September 1970 in London, reportedly from a sleeping pill overdose.

Looks like we don't have Jimi Hendrix salary information. Sorry!


#Fact
1 Jimi Hendrix Is Cousin To Actor/Model Phillip Allen Hall III.
2 Was known to be very charming with women to the point that friends were hesitant to introduce Their girlfriends to him.
3 He had a fear of needles.
4 He had fans request 'Hey Joe' so often he eventually got sick of it and disliked playing it.
5 On one occasion a girlfriend had to have stitches after Hendrix struck her above the eye with a bottle in a drunken rage.
6 Pictured on a USA nondenominated 'forever' commemorative postage stamp in the Music Icons series, issued 13 March 2014. Price on the day of issue was 49¢.
7 Jimi wrote with his right hand but played guitar with his left hand.
8 Following his untimely death, he was interred at Greenwood Cemetery in Renton, Washington.
9 He was posthumously awarded a star on the Music City Walk of Fame in Nashville, Tennessee in November 2007.
10 Jimi Hendrix and Engelbert Humperdinck had a mutual respect for each other's work. So when a guitarist didn't turn up for an Engelbert Humperdinck concert, Jimi offered to step in. Engelbert thought it might damage Jimi's image, so Jimi played behind a curtain, he also restrained himself from doing any trademark licks and played in the orchestral style of an Engelbert Humperdinck song.
11 Was discharged from the United States Army for sub par service including sleeping on duty and poor marksmanship.
12 Was arrested for stealing cars in his youth and given the choice of jail or two years in the United States Army.
13 Although the Fender Stratocaster is the guitar most associated with Hendrix, he played a variety during his career including the Gibson SG, Gibson Les Paul and Gibson Flying V.
14 Was expelled from high school for poor grades and attendance, though he later received an honorary diploma.
15 Died at 27 years old, making him a member of the "27 Club"; The 27 Club is a group of prominent musicians who died at the age of 27. Other members include The Rolling Stones co-founder Brian Jones, singer Janis Joplin, The Doors frontman Jim Morrison, Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse.
16 He was posthumously awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Recording at 6627 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California on November 14, 1991.
17 Stepbrother of Janie Hendrix.
18 Lived in London, England and New York City.
19 Though the guitar chord - 7th + sharpened 9th - became known as "The Hendrix Chord" through its heavy use on his "Foxy Lady" and "Purple Haze," the 7#9 was actually used several months earlier by George Harrison on "Taxman" from The Beatles' 1966 album "Revolver".
20 (November 16, 2005) Posthumously inducted into the UK Music Hall of Fame for his outstanding contribution to British music and integral part of British music culture.
21 Was very close friends with David Nuuhiwa, who later was used in Rainbow Bridge (1972).
22 In spite of his legendary status, he only had one #1 hit with "All Along the Watchtower".
23 Ranked #51 on VH1's 100 Sexiest Artists.
24 David Gilmour of Pink Floyd lists him as a major influence. When Gilmour saw Hendrix playing in a London nightclub in 1966, he said that nobody who saw that performance left the club not thinking that Hendrix would go all the way to the top.
25 While living in London in 1966, he got the chance to jam with Cream. He had wanted a chance to play with Eric Clapton.
26 He was discovered and managed by Chas Chandler, the Newcastle-born bass player for the 1960s group The Animals, who had a hit with "House of the Rising Sun", he later went on to manage the rock group Slade in the 1970s.
27 When Jimi first moved to England he would often stay with his manager, Chas Chandler, in his hometown of Newcastle Upon Tyne. He often busked in the Heaton area of Newcastle near Chillingham Road, not far from where Chandler grew up and went to school.
28 Was the first musician inducted into the Native American Music Hall of Fame. He had stated that he had Tsalagi (Cherokee) and Nahua (Aztec) ancestors, though it is not clear if these lineages have been verified/documented.
29 Name was legally changed from "Johnny Allen Hendrix" to "James Marshall Hendrix" on September 11, 1946. He was 3 years old at the time.
30 He was voted the 6th Greatest Rock 'n' Roll Artist of all time by Rolling Stone. He was also voted the greatest guitarist of all time in a 2003 poll by Rolling Stone, a claim few would dispute.
31 He was a huge fan of Bob Dylan, often to the annoyance of friends and girlfriends as he would play Dylan's records again and again. Many say they can hear the influence of Dylan in Hendrix's lyrics. Hendrix often played "Like a Rolling Stone" at shows, but one of the legendary guitarist's best known songs was his cover of Dylan's "All Along the Watchtower" (Dylan today performs the song as a Hendrix tribute.).
32 Wrote "Voodoo Child", which would later be the entrance theme for pro wrestler Hulk Hogan.
33 For years, many people thought that Hendrix's final performance was at the Isle of Wight Festival in England. However, Hendrix's final performance was at a festival in Germany that was marred by bad weather and violence, especially by the German Hell's Angels.
34 Hendrix and Pete Townshend of The Who got into a heated argument over who was going to follow whom at the Monterey Pop Festival. Neither artist wanted to follow the other, so John Phillips flipped a coin to decide who was going to go on. Townshend won, so Hendrix had to follow The Who, and he answered their usual end-of-show instrument smashing by setting his guitar on fire during the last song.
35 Posthumously inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (as a member of the Jimi Hendrix Experience) in 1992.
36 Played his next to last performance at the infamous Isle of Wight Festival in August 1970.
37 Played in the Ike Turner Review under the name "Jimmy James".
38 One of the early electric guitars Hendrix played was the now-discontinued Fender MusicMaster, which Jimi used while backing The Isley Brothers in the early 1960s. He also used the Fender Jazzmaster, an essential instrument for the punk music movement of the late 1970s and early 1980s.
39 Though Hendrix did indeed play right-handed Fender Stratocasters upside down (with the strings restrung for lefty position), he did own at least one left-handed Stratocaster. Hendrix also owned a left-handed "Flying V" guitar, which he played periodically.
40 Hendrix was capable of playing guitars with his right and left hands. He also was able to play right-handed guitars without restringing. This unusual skill often served Jimi well: On many occasions he "auditioned" guitars in music stores -- where left-handed axes are not usually plentiful.
41 Hendrix played left-handed, much to the chagrin of his father, who believed that playing left-handed was a sign of the Devil! As Jimi's brother witnessed, Jimi played right-handed when his father was present. After the elder Hendrix left the room, Jimi would use his famous left hand. However, Jimi wrote with his right hand.
42 His parents, Lucille (Jeter) and James Allen Hendrix, were both African-American, as were all of his grandparents (Bertran Philander Hendrix, Zenora "Nora" Rose Moore, Preston Murice Jeter, and Clarice Lawson).
43 Toured with The Monkees in 1967 as their opening act, in the weeks before his Monterey performance; disliking their music at first, Hendrix was surprised that the Monkees would invite him (They all but demanded his presence on tour from their managers.) He and the group hit it off well, though, and found each other to be genuine, impressive, and good company (Some jamming did happen offstage, but none was recorded.) Hendrix's act proved far less a match with the Monkees' fans, though, and performances sometimes unraveled among relentless cries for the headliners. Hendrix asked to leave the tour, to begin his own after Monterey; he left on good terms, but a story was concocted by the Monkees' press corps that Hendrix was out because of protests from the Daughters of the American Revolution, about his wild stage act -- an inside joke, and some extra publicity for Hendrix.
44 As a United States Army paratrooper, Hendrix followed up a jump by trying to recreate the sound of the air rushing by, with his guitar and amplifier, back at the barracks.
45 Had actually lost over 60% of his hearing by the time of his death; during mixing sessions Hendrix often found himself the only person who could stand the playback volumes he needed, over the studio speakers.
46 Musician Al Kooper received one of Hendrix's black Stratocasters from him as a gift; after deconverting the left-handed setup, Kooper used the guitar years later, to record the Crime Story: Pilot (1986) soundtrack.
47 Guitar impresario Les Paul supposedly called Hendrix "a left-handed, mother f---ing genius". Neil Young said Hendrix was "absolutely the best guitar player that ever lived; there was no one even in the same building as that guy".
48 The footage of him playing "The Star-Spangled Banner" in the film Woodstock (1970) is one of the most studied pieces of musical film ever.
49 Was said to put LSD litmus ("blotter acid") under his bandana while he was playing on stage.
50 Usually played an upside-down Fender Stratocaster, restrung for left hand.
51 Backed Little Richard and The Isley Brothers before being "discovered" by Chas Chandler of The Animals in 1966.

#Quote
1 I'd like to get something together, like with Handel, and Bach, and Muddy Waters, flamenco type of thing... If I could get that sound, I'd be happy.
2 I can't express myself in any conversation... But when I'm up on stage, it's all the world. It's my whole life.
3 When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.
4 Once you're dead, you're made for life.
5 I will be dead in five years' time, but while I am here, I will travel many highways and I will, of necessity, die at a time when my message of love, peace and freedom can be shared with people all over the world.

#Trademark
1 Afro and thin moustache
2 Pink headband
3 Brightly colored outfits
4 Would often smash his guitar and/or light it on fire after a show
5 Played a right handed guitar left handed
6 Fender Stratocaster
7 Guitar solos and heavy riffs
