It happened today September 18,1970 at Saint Mary Abbot's Hospital in London Jimi Hendrix was dead on arrival at the age of 27 after choking on his own vomit. Those familiar with incident say that if Jimi had been put into an upright position in the ambulance rather than on his back, he wouldn’t have suffocated on his own vomit. Stories have circulated that he was overdosed as part of a bad business deal and his manager had him murdered. Others say it was suicide. But people close to Jimi say no way that he would have killed himself.

The music Jimi created is so cool.
