Zakk Wylde, Jonny Lang, Kenny Wayne Shepherd + More to Embark on Jimi Hendrix Tribute Tour

Experience Hendrix Tour 2014

As a member of the tragically infamous ’27 Club,’ guitar god Jimi Hendrix died much too young. However, during his short time in the spotlight, Hendrix cemented himself as perhaps the greatest guitar player of all time. To celebrate Hendrix’s immortal influence, musicians such as Zakk Wylde, Buddy Guy, Jonny Lang, Kenny Wayne Shepherd and even Jimi Hendrix Experience / Band of Gypsys bassist Billy Cox will hit the road for the Experience Hendrix 2014 Tour.

Top-shelf musicians such as Joe Satriani, Jerry Cantrell, Mike McCready and even Carlos Santana have participated in ‘Experience Hendrix’ events in the past, allowing for the tribute to become an institution for Hendrix fanatics and newcomers alike.

Billy Cox has been heavily involved with ‘Experience Hendrix’ for many years, performing the immortal tracks he once played beside Hendrix himself. “It’s always a great thrill and honor for me to play Jimi’s music for audiences now just as it was in the 1960s,” says Cox. “The Experience Hendrix tours have shown how timeless this music really is and is just wonderful that we’ve continued to get an infusion of new, very enthusiastic artists to participate and are able to offer the most wide-ranging Jimi Hendrix-related repertoire possible.”

Among 2014 participants in the newest ‘Experience Hendrix’ tour is Dweezil Zappa; guitarist and son of the one-and-only Frank Zappa. “I’ve always been a great admirer of Jimi Hendrix,” Dweezil shares. “My dad told me some great stories about playing with him. Jimi’s ability to express himself so completely with an electric guitar is very inspiring to me. “There was an authentic expression of his personality in the music. And that rings true to every generation. He wasn’t following trends. His playing was soulful and exciting and surprising.”
