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.

The original Rolling Stone story on the death of Hendrix can be read here.

The last show Hendrix played was at the Open Air Love & Peace Festival in Fehmarn, Germany, on Sept. 6, 1970, with the Jimi Hendrix Experience.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
