57 years ago today, a 16 year old Jimi Hendrix performed onstage for the very first time and ended up fired. On February 20, 1960, Jimi played guitar with and unnamed band in the basement of Seattle’s Temple De Hirsch Synagogue. His flash turned out to be way too much for the rest of the band.  In between sets his services were terminated for showing off on stage. I wonder how those guys felt about him 7 years later?

Join us tonight at 6:20 for live Hendrix on the WBLM MIni-Concert!

Watch Jimi “showing off” at Miami Pop Festival in 1968.
