Jimi HendrixOn BBC Radio 2 this evening, at 10pm, 'The Jimi Hendrix Experience' has Jerry Hall marking the 40th anniversary of the death of Jimi Hendrix (18 September 1970) by considering his legacy as one of the most creative and influential musicians of the 20th Century. Recollections from musicians who experienced the thrill of seeing Jimi play live, provide an eyewitness account that captures the chaos and excitement of Hendrix's career.

The programme charts a chronological path through Jimi's most important performances, beginning with his career as a backing musician for some of the biggest names in soul music and R&B including Ike & Tina Turner, Little Richard, Sam Cooke, The Isley Brothers, BB King and Jackie Wilson.

Contributors to this programme include Eric Clapton, David Gilmour, Pete Townshend, Paul McCartney, Monterey Festival organiser Lou Adler, Andy Fairweather Low, Phil Manzanera, David Crosby, Keith Altham and 'Tappy' Wright as well as archive interviews with Mitch Mitchell, Noel Redding and Chas Chandler.

BBC Radio 2 can be heard on DAB and FM radio, via Freeview, Sky satellite and Virgin Media cable, and via, which will allow listeners around the world to tune in. The BBC's iPlayer service (at their website, and on Virgin Media) will allow listening on demand for seven days from the date of broadcast, principally for those in the UK, but this does also work in some other countries.
