Jimi Hendrix: Hear My Train a Comin’ (2013)

“A great guy. One of my best friends, I miss him even today, 40 years later, like a brother. ” – Billy Cox

Number of Times Seen – 1 (27 Oct 2021)

Brief Synopsis – Documentary about the life and career trajectry of Jimi Hendrix who is considered by many to be one of the very best musicians of all time.

My Take on it – I have never been much of a fan of Jimi Hendrix and his music, but when I came across this film, I became quite curious about learning more about his short life and career.

They are able to get some great interviews with many of the artists who worked with him over the years and they manage to give a nice overview of why he was able to rapidly rise to stardom.

His music is known to be quite iconic and he has been attributed with changing the face of music thru the way he performed.

The interviews also allow for the viewer to get a much clearer picture of his home life and how that was also a contributing factor to the way his career and life progressed over the years.

Like many other musicians, he started off small and as soon as it became apparent as to how talented he truly was things only went up from there.

His story is a tragic one due to the fact that he passed away at such an early age and one can wonder how high he could have gone had he lived.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – The episode won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Sound Mixing for Nonfiction Programming. (From IMDB)

Rating – BAFTA Worthy (6/10)
