Music doesn’t lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music.

Jimi Hendrix

Sometimes you want to give up the guitar, you’ll hate the guitar. But if you stick with it, you’re gonna be rewarded.

Jimi Hendrix

Every city in the world always has a gang, a street gang, or the so-called outcasts.

Jimi Hendrix

I’m gonna put a curse on you and all your kids will be born completely naked.

Jimi Hendrix

I wish they’d had electric guitars in cotton fields back in the good old days. A whole lot of things would’ve been straightened out.

Jimi Hendrix

My goal is to be one with the music. I just dedicate my whole life to this art.

Jimi Hendrix

To be with the others, you have to have your hair short and wear ties. So we’re trying to make a third world happen, you know what I mean?

Jimi Hendrix

All I’m gonna do is just go on and do what I feel.

Jimi Hendrix

We have time, there’s no big rush.

Jimi Hendrix

I have this one little saying, when things get too heavy just call me helium, the lightest known gas to man.

Jimi Hendrix

When I played God Bless The Queen, I was wondering if they was gonna dig us, then quite naturally I’d go on and try to get it together.

Jimi Hendrix

In order to change the world, you have to get your head together first.

Jimi Hendrix

You don’t have to be singing about love all the time in order to give love to the people. You don’t have to keep flashing those words all the time.

Jimi Hendrix

When I die, I want people to play my music, go wild and freak out and do anything they want to do.

Jimi Hendrix

When things get too heavy, just call me helium, the lightest known gas to man.

Jimi Hendrix

When I die, just keep playing the records.

Jimi Hendrix

The time I burned my guitar it was like a sacrifice. You sacrifice the things you love. I love my guitar.

Jimi Hendrix

It’s funny the way most people love the dead. Once you are dead, you are made for life.

Jimi Hendrix

I was trying to do too many things at the same time, which is my nature. But I was enjoying it, and I still do enjoy it.

Jimi Hendrix

You have to forget about what other people say, when you’re supposed to die, or when you’re supposed to be loving. You have to forget about all these things.

Jimi Hendrix

See, that’s nothing but blues, that’s all I’m singing about. It’s today’s blues.

Jimi Hendrix

I try to use my music to move these people to act.

Jimi Hendrix

White collar conservative flashin down the street, pointing that plastic finger at me, they all assume my kind will drop and die, but I’m gonna wave my freak flag high.

Jimi Hendrix

Rock is so much fun. That’s what it’s all about – filling up the chest cavities and empty kneecaps and elbows.

Jimi Hendrix

All I’m writing is just what I feel, that’s all. I just keep it almost naked. And probably the words are so bland.

Jimi Hendrix

My nature just changes.

Jimi Hendrix

It all has to come from inside, though, I guess.

Jimi Hendrix

You have to give people something to dream on.

Jimi Hendrix

When we go to play, you flip around and flash around and everything, and then they’re not gonna see nothin’ but what their eyes see. Forget about their ears.

Jimi Hendrix

If it was up to me, there wouldn’t be no such thing as the establishment.
