Featuring artists who will be performing music written by and associated with Jimi Hendrix include blues giant Buddy Guy, pedal steel innovator Robert Randolph, contemporary guitar greats Jonny Lang and Kenny Wayne Shepherd. Special guests include Robby Krieger, guitarist of The Doors, Rolling Stones veteran guitarist Mick Taylor and Hubert Sumlin, the Mississippi-born guitarist who worked with both Howlin' Wolf and Muddy Waters. Most remarkably, Mitch Mitchell (drums) and Billy Cox (bass), the same Jimi Hendrix Experience rhythm section that played behind Hendrix at Woodstock will be on hand for the Experience Hendrix tour dates as will Chris Layton and Tommy Shannon, a/k/a Double Trouble, the late Stevie Ray Vaughan's highly regarded rhythm section. Native American band Indigenous, Eric Gales, the Memphis guitarist who is heard on the Power of Soul Jimi Hendrix tribute album and Kenny Olson of Kid Rock's band are also part of the Experience Hendrix Tour. Guitar World's renowned music transcriber and Hendrix guitar instructor Andy Aledort will once again join the tour. Various combinations of these artists in performance are sure to make the concerts very special events for both new and veteran Hendrix fans.
The new Experience Hendrix tour is an exciting prospect for Billy Cox whose history with Jimi Hendrix dates back to their days in the Army together. He commented, "It's a thrill for me to play Jimi's music for audiences now as it was in the early 1960s. The Experience Hendrix tour just show you how timeless this music really is."
