Jimi Hendrix remembered on 48th anniversary of death
Jimi Hendrix was 27 when he died Sept. 18, 1970 in London.
But 48 years after his early death, his legacy to the music world is still felt.
Many mourned and eulogized the late rock ‘n’ roll icon Tuesday, paying tribute to one of the early members of the 27 Club, a group of musicians and celebrities who passed away at age 27.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame tweeted about Hendrix, who was inducted in 1992.
