I did. :r

Then again, I have the excuse of age . . . if not the wisdom that's supposed to accompany it.

I did too

and I don't have the excuse of age, Jimi was dead before I was born.

Speaking of "Did you know", did you know that Johnny Cash spent his service time as a radio intercept monitor in Europe, and as such was the first Westerner to hear the news that Stalin had died?

I knew about Hendrix but not about Johnny. The reason I know is because I am in the 101st.

I thought everyone who was deeply into '60's music knew that? :confused: :D

I wonder what his drill sergeants from Basic thought once he hit it big, going from clean cut Army to Hippie Gypsy Guitar Guru? :r

I remember hearing an interview where he described his experience of jumping out of an airplane. Can't seem to find it online, though
