Anybody up for a road trip to Seattle Washington to celebrate our hero, Jimi Hendrix's life and legacy?
Inspired by Pat's idea. How bout we put together a CTT celebration. All interested members of CTT could get together, meet in Seattle in say a year or two from now (give people around the globe a chance to book a flight in advance to to get the best deal possible, as well as hotel accomadations).
We could start the day, having a meet and greet at the Jimi Hendrix Park http://jimihendrixpark.org/(to be dedicated in the near future) share our stories, have a barbeque with Jimi tunes blasting. We could rent a bus or just take the local bus around town: checking out the sites: Paul Allen's Music Project http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Experie...d_Hall_of_Fame, check out EH headquarters (not sure if Google Earth is showing the exact location) (maybe Janie would even meet with us- good PR for her- nice media story), we could check out Jimi's childhood home (or at least where it once stood) (I believe the partially deconstructed home resides in a nearby trailor park)http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/htm...endrix31m.html), check out his High School (Garfield) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Garfiel...le,_Washington), visit the
music shoppe where Hendrix bought his first guitar (new owners, Mural has been removed) http://wikimapia.org/1082133/Where-J...s-first-guitar.
travel by and maybe see a concert at Sticks Stadium (not sue of EH has any scheduled concerts planned for the future at this venue http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sick's_Stadium , I bet Leon http://www.leonhendrix.com/askleon.html would speak with us and maybe be our tour guide. We could even see the gravesite (for me -this would be an incredible spirital connection http://www.jimihendrixmemorial.com/updates.html .
your comments and ideas are most welcome and encourged. Depending on the interest and itinerary, we might consider extending the fun 2-3 days. I'm sure there are more sites to see in Seattle- if you know of them- please share.
Marcos, thank you for setting up the poll
