This photo of Jimi Hendrix was taken the day before his death on September 17, 1970. Jimi would have been 71 today - 27/11/13.
I’m a little disillusioned right now with the current state of tumblr.
I received another email this morning about another alleged copyright infringement notice about an audio post. I no longer have any audio posts up so I have no clue why this is happening. I have a sinking feeling that this blog is going to bite the dust one of these days. It’s actually ironic I think, that this blog will eventual die because of music.
I will continue to blog photos, quotes and such but I thought I’d just put this out there in case it happens. I’m so depressed. It seems like you can’t use tumblr for what you want to anymore. If the DMCA continue (which they will) there won’t be any blogs left on here. I for one, will not be creating another blog with tumblr if this one disappears. Good job, Yahoo.

It was darn nigh impossible for women in rock in the ’70s. There wasn’t a mold if you were a woman and you were in the entertainment in the ’70s. You were probably a disco diva or a folk singer, or simply ornamental. Radio would play only one woman per hour
