Celebrating Jimi Hendrix's Birthday


November 20, 2017

Jimi Hendrix would be celebrating his 75th birthday on Monday November 27th, and KISW is committed to throwing him one incredible birthday party. Rockaholics, you’re all invited to the festivities.


The world lost this insanely talented man far too early, and although we only had a few years of his music to fall in love with, his style and influence still top the list of greats.


On Jimi’s birthday, Monday November 27th, tune into KISW to honor his life, music and legacy. Throughout the day, we will highlight his musical career with your favorite Hendrix jams and covers, plus those deeper cuts we love sinking our teeth into. 


Later that evening, KISW Presents Jimi Hendrix's 75th Birthday Celebration, as Seattle comes together at the Hard Rock Café to pay tribute to our local guitar legend.


Visit MoPOP in Seattle this Saturday for an extra special look into the life of Jimi Hendrix. 


If you have a moment, pay a visit to Jimi Hendrix Park in Seattle’s Central District. This beautiful space is dedicated to music and art, inspired by the story of Jimi Hendrix. His birthday would be the perfect day to check out this community gathering place. We are pretty sure he would love to know you stopped on by.


Happy 75th Birthday, Jimi! We sure miss you here, but your music, spirit and legacy will continue to live on.


- Your KISW Family
