The Eagles, Jimi Hendrix , Bob Dylan and Bad Company.

Former Eagles guitarist Don Felder is 64, on this day in 1966, during his flight to London in search of a record deal as well as fame & fortune, James Marshall Hendrix changed the spelling of his nickname to Jimi.

Upon his arrival in England, Jimi only had a few short days to assemble a band before he’d be kicked out of the country for lack of a work visa. So within a week the brand new Jimi Hendrix Experience was performing on stage.  In 1968, Jimi Hendrix released his version of Bob Dylan‘s “All Along the Watchtower” just six months after Dylan’s original recording and sadly on this day in 2006, original Bad Company bassist Raymond “Boz” Burrell died of a heart attack at his home in Spain. He was 60 years of age.  Be safe, Crowski
