Fender Finally Honors Hendrix

The Fender Guitar Hall Of Fame has only been in existance for three years but other than Leo Fender himself, we can't think of anyone more entitled to a place in the Hall year one than the guitar great whose name is practically synonymous with Fender instruments, James Marshall HendrixHendrix gets the inexplicably delayed honor on August 13 in Tempe, Arizona.  Janie Hendrix, CEO of Experience Hendrix, the entity that manages all licensing matters relating to Jimi's name, will accept the honor on behalf of her late step-brother. Kenny Wayne Shepherd, and engineer-producer Eddie Kramer are also expected to attend.  Hendrix, who played an inverted right-hand strung Stratocaster, single handedly reinvented what could be done both musically and physically during his brief but prolific career.
