It’s hard to believe that one musician could have an active recording career of only eight years and still make the kind of long-lasting impact that Jimi Hendrix has on modern music & culture. From the moment of his odd “discovery”, blowing away the former girlfriend of Keith Richards with his musical talents, Hendrix would be thrown onto the music scene. Traveling on a Pan Am airliner from New York to Heathrow on September 21st, 1966, a barley known Hendrix would find his new home & a launching pad for his career. Hendrix’s brilliance would soon become a spectacle of sorts for some of the UK’s biggest names in The Beatles, Rolling Stones, The Who & others. But it wasn’t until Hendrix’s prowess caught the ear of Cream’s Eric Clapton, the man who was widely considered to be the best guitar player in the world at that time, that Hendrix supernatural skills were cemented into the rock n’ roll music scene. Jimi would invite Clapton to join him for a jam session at the Regent Street Polytechnic Theater to display their skills. Shortly after joining Hendrix, Clapton would leave the stage in frustration and tell Chas Chandler, “You never told me he was that fucking good." From that moment, Hendrix was a megastar, not only among fans, but also among active musicians. Offered here is possibly the finest piece of Hendrix signed memorabilia to ever hit the open market. This is an original 1967 Sven Oredsson 7.25” x 9.5” on-stage photo of Hendrix in his prime during a concern in Stockholm, Sweden on May 24th, 1967, superbly signed by the music god in pink felt tip marker, adding “Love Always, Jimi Hendrix, to Rosetta.” With the signature grading a MINT 9 by PSA/DNA, this is the highest graded Jimi Hendrix photo to ever be recorded in PSA/DNA’s database at the time of authentication in 2014. Overall in fine condition, with very minor surface impressions for the sake of extreme accuracy. Original signed on-stage images of Hendrix such as this are considered some of the most sought after items in the hobby & with this combination of quality & rarity, we can say with confidence this is a centerpiece item to even the shrewdest of collectors.  Accompanied by dual letters of authentication from music authority Tracks Limited & PSA/DNA with a grading of MINT 9.
