How do you become the biggest band around? Put in the work like Foo Fighters.
Jimi Hendrix approached 1970 at top speed. The splintered year would mark his last on earth, but the guitarist’s visionary pursuits — whether playing on the side of a Hawaiian volcano or whipping 600,000 English fans into a frenzy, recording new songs or partaking in counter-cultural filmmaking — still resonate more than 50 years later.
Nerves, nuances and more: Try not to shiver as you get a glimpse of pre-fame Coldplay prior to the release of the band’s debut album, “Parachutes.”
