the doobie brothers
Tuesday (November 27) marks 70 years since the birth of Jimi Hendrix, the man who changed electric guitar and rock’n'roll forever. For the past few weeks, CBS Local has discussed the man’s impact with musicians who came after him, his peers, and even one of his main inspirations. Everyone felt his influence, whether it was on their guitar playing, or their singing. Some even found a new direction for their life thanks to Jimi.
Tom Johnston of The Doobie Brothers was one of many artists inspired by Jimi; he told CBS Local that in the short period that Hendrix made records (1966-1970) “Musically, he changed the whole landscape, he was doin’ things that nobody was doin’.” While much has been said about Hendrix’s live showmanship, Johnston was more impressed by what Jimi did in the studio, including his use of feedback and backwards recording.
