Jimi Hendrix at Woodstock, Fifty years ago, on Aug. 18, 1969

Conservatives cringed @ his rendition of Star Spangled Banner @ the time, but now it is iconic piece of American music. RIP Jimi. 

WORCESTER, Mass. – Fifty years ago, on Aug. 18, 1969, legendary guitarist Jimi Hendrix stepped onto the stage at the Woodstock, N.Y., Music Festival and started upon an uninterrupted set lasting nearly two hours — one of the longest performances of his career. It concluded with a long medley that included the solo performance of the Star Spangled Banner that would become emblematic not only of Woodstock, but of the 1960's.
