​‘What attracts me to Jimi Hendrix’s music is the amazingly open mind that he had. This was reflected in many ways; he was always gracious and never insulting to anybody and this showed through the music. There were any number of influences that you can hear through his compositions; these ranged from rock, blues and Celtic through to trance and experimental styles. Maybe that’s why I find it so natural exploring his music, having been involved in so many similar styles myself.’ Nigel Kennedy
