VIDEO: Jimi Hendrix Experience – Very Rare German TV Performance of Purple Haze

The Jimi Hendrix Experience – Purple Haze – My Beat Club
Another great live performance from the legendary Marquee Club in Swinging London! The Jimi Hendrix Experience performs “Purple Haze”, one of his signature songs, exclusively for German television. Hendrix said that the title of the song was inspired by a phrase (“purplish haze”) from the science fiction novel “The Night of Light” by Philip José Farmer. But also the music of the song is famous. Today, the extended dominant guitar chord of the track is also known as “The Hendrix chord”. With this technique Hendrix helped to establish the use of chords in popular music. See more live Marquee Club stuff with Jimi Hendrix playing “Hey Joe” and The Who performing “My Generation”!
