Psychedelic Sundaze #8


















As you probably know, Jimi Hendrix was born in Seattle, but moved to England to form the Jimi Hendrix Experience (pictured above). The impact and inventiveness of Hendrix' guitar playing has been recounted by countless journalists since his demise in 1970. The story of David Vorhaus, another expat, has not been disseminated quite as thoroughly. In the grand scheme of Rock & Roll, however, his band White Noise might have been every bit as influential as the Experience. Especially considering, for better or worse, how important the synthesizer became as an instrument in rock music. If you are interested in the history of electronic music, I urge you to check out Vorhaus' story here: Sound on Sound: David Vorhaus.

Happy Listening!
