The image is of Jimi Hendrix’s Stratocaster which was smashed at the Saville Theater, June 4, 1967. Hendrix played a cover of “Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band” which had been released just three days prior to the show and to top it off, all of the Beatles were at the show! To read more, >>click here<<. This is the back of the guitar and the poem reads:
May this be love or just confusion
Born out of frustration
of not being able to make true physical
love to the universal gypsie queen of
true, free expressed music
My darling guitar, please rest in peace.
Devon and I went to Experience Music Project in Seattle over the weekend, had a blast watching him play different guitars, checking out the exhibits and such. 😀 Also took a little hiatus from posting, just been so crazy between work, home and getting my health (nothing to worry about folks) back on track. Happy to back, hope my images will live up to my past posts! Enjoy…
as a Music major in my soul, I totally adore this!!! : ))))
Love that you cant see the case. Lovely!
Captured behind glass – you can barely tell. Interesting look and the story that goes with it is great, except of you not feeling well. Hope you feel better.
Nice shot David. Glad to hear you are okay. I was starting to wonder…
Nice composition David.
That’s cool! Hope you sort your health out!
Nice shot, and welcome back!
Wow, that guitar has really been destroyed! I like the contrast of the rough lines and texture of the guitar with the polished glass case.
