KENNY WAYNE SHEPHERD– famed guitarist and devout Jimi Hendrix fan- has just wrapped his Experience Hendrix Tour in America and when the trek came through NYC, Shepherd stopped by the Jimmy Fallon show to jam out some Hendrix classics live on TV.
Whilst backstage in the green room, Kenny was presented with Jimi’s iconic white Fender Stratocaster and so he showed us all the nicks and scratches that reveal the 1968 Strat’s hallowed history.
“Jimi Hendrix’s music has really inspired me to push the limits of my own music, ” Kenny once said about his love if Hendrix, “He didn’t observe any boundaries musically. He was an amazing player and a tremendous showman so I incorporated some of his showmanship in what I do.”
Check out the video of Kenny with Hendrix’s strat and be sure to check out the Voodoo Chile cover from the digital special edition of current album Live! In Chicago, which you can pick up online over at iTunes.
