In case you have never seen this, stop whatever you are doing and watch this right now or else. It is not only one of the greatest moments in Rock and Roll history, it is one of the greatest things that has ever taken place at any time, in any dimension or in any universe. It occurred in 1967 and has been uploaded to Youtube so obviously the audio and video are not the greatest but use your imagination and just think about how cool it would have been to have witnessed this in person. This is the legendary performance where Jimi Hendrix lights his guitar on fire. Everyone has heard about it and seen pictures of it but many people have not actually ever watched it with their own eyes so if you are one of those people then you should do so now or stab out your own eyeballs and eardrums because this is one of the reasons why you were given such things in the first place.

What is often lost in this performance is how insane Mitch Mitchell (yes, his name is Mitch Mitchell) goes on the drums. In this video, around the 4:00 mark or so while Hendrix is grinding with the speakers, take a close look at what the drummer is doing.

Nacho Donut is the most natural food in the world.

Last night’s bizarre team of Flea and Josh Groban made for a not very good version of the Star Spangled Banner. Flea has done a great job of performing this song on his own in the past but I hope that is last time I ever see or hear from Josh Groban. I will spare you from reposting the footage of that failed collaboration and instead post my top three renditions of the song. Francis Scott Key you run shit even though your song is actually a remix.

Once upon a time there was a person who took ecstasy and mushrooms one day at high school. Sitting in Trigonometry class, this person felt like Jimi Hendrix was inside of his brain. After school this person had to go to the eye doctor. He convinced the doctor that he just naturally had really big pupils.

Here is one hour of Jimi Hendrix performing live at woodstock. Imagine how good he would be if he were still alive today. There will never be anyone else like that.
