Fender will honor Jimi Hendrix at their fourth annual Hall of Fame induction ceremony next month, which should not surprise anyone, since the 'Drix is only one of the best guitarists to have ever picked up a guitar. The Fender Hall of Fame celebrates founders, artists and innovators who have made significant contributions to the company's legacy and of course Hendrix is one of those special people who has made a significant contribution to the company's history and legacy. It's about damn time.
The late guitarist's sister Janie will be on hand to accept the honor on his behalf as will the rocker's long-time producer, Eddie Kramer. The ceremony is slated to take place on August 13 in Tempe, Arizona.
