Jimi Hendrix and best friend Devon Wilson, 1970. He wrote two famous songs about her - "Dolly Dagger" and "Doriela de Fontaine". Though originally part of his groupie entourage, they became intimate and she became a trusted friend for the rest of his life. She was also intimate with Mick Jagger and other members of the Rollin Stones, plus a number of other famous rock performers during the 1960's.

Jimi Hendrix exploded our idea of what rock music could be: He manipulated the guitar, the whammy bar, the studio and the stage. On songs like "Machine Gun" or "Voodoo Chile," his instrument is like a divining rod of the turbulent Sixties – you can hear the riots in the streets and napalm bombs dropping in his "Star-Spangled Banner."
