Hendrix Resurrected on Tour

Living Colour, Buddy Guy bring legendary guitarist's music to life

Jimi Hendrix's classic catalog will be brought back to life with a short tribute tour, where the legendary guitarist's songs will be performed by the likes of Living Colour, Buddy Guy, Double Trouble and Alice in Chains guitarist Jerry Cantrell.

Three dates in Hendrix's hometown of Seattle will kick off the tour, starting February 22nd at the Paramount Theater. Other guitarists, young and old, including Howlin' Wolf's axeman Hubert Sumlin, Earth Wind and Fire's Sheldon Reynolds and Kenny Wayne Shepherd will take the stage. Bad Company frontman Paul Rodgers has also been tapped as a special guest.

So far two additional shows have been set: Portland's Roseland Theater on February 24th (with Guy, Living Colour, Cantrell, Double Trouble and Indigenous) and the Warfield Theater in San Francisco on February 26th featuring the same lineup except for Joe Satriani, who subs for Living Colour.

Two of Hendrix's former bandmates -- drummer Mitch Mitchell from the Jimi Hendrix Experience and bassist Billy Cox from the Band of Gypsies -- will also be on hand for the shows.

Nearly thirty-four years have passed since Hendrix's death, but interest in the guitarist remains strong. Last fall he topped Rolling Stone's list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time, and in May he will be the subject of Power of Soul, a tribute record featuring his songs covered by Eric Clapton, Sting, Prince, Santana, Musiq and others.
