Kevin Wilson won't get fired from Indiana. He's been a heck of a coach fro that team thus far and has really given IU a national identity (offense), which in essence they should be able to cplete and have shootouts with the likes of other no-defense teams like TCU and Baylor, etc.  If IU somehow can muster up a great up and coming D-coordinator who can coach, motivate, and recruit, then I believe IU could be a top 15 team every year.

As for albums, Electric Ladyland had some cool, trippy stuff but  'Axis: Bold As Love' will always be my favorite. The cool thing about 'Ladyland' is that you could see Hendrix take the reins completely and start to see in full where his vision was going. 

Album #1: He had to play the pop game for the radio/ Chas Chandler/ record company, etc.,  but Jimi's magical talent still shone through. 

Album #2: A beautiful and well produced album that Hendrix got to express his musical talent AND artistic visionary talent with little resistance (except for song 10 'She's So Fine' where Hendrix apparently let Noel Redding get off as a pop star wannabe for two and a half minutes while Jimi steals the show with an exquisite ten second guitar solo.) 

Album #3: Jimi really takes over in this album in his own studio and it shows through his music. Kind of a mix of where he's been and where he's going. I never got the 'flow' of it but great 'trippy' music none the less.

Posthumous albums: I first got into Hendrix on a 'greatest hits' album from my older brother. Cool. Lots of radio hits. Over a ten year period, I purchased his three studio albums one at a time as I learned about him and his music. Lastly I bought a posthumous album titled: 'First Rays Of The New Rising Sun' [1997], which was billed as what was to be Hendrix's 4th studio album. I was not disappointed. It felt not like a collaboration or a greatest hits, but like an intricate arrangement of songs he was creating at the time of his death that was put together like it naturally should have been. The songs have a much different vibe to them than any of his previous albums and its not the arrangement, its almost like he's finished with an era and stumbling his way into a future he's unsure of...

Some VERY beautiful songs on that album, I highly recommend. 

Anybody got any feedback on 'People, Hell, and Angels' [2013]?

Thanks John Cooper for this post. I swear we went to HS together and got tripped out on the same choices in music. Back before CDs became obsolete, I got started on Hendrix, The Doors, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, The Who (a little bit), Pink Fuckin Floyd! Man those were the days. Way before my time but me and my freinds MADE that music OUR time!

When it comes to my all-time favorite Hendrix song? It's tough because he's got so many gems but I'd have to go with 'Little Wing', maybe the shortest, most beautiful song ever. Much like Jimi's life. RIP JMH

That's why you guys sucked in HS on those multiple-choice tests. You don't study and then try to go in there and psychoanalyze the test makers! Its all random! Its like filling in the test bubbles to make a picture. You'll lose every time~!
