One of my favourite singers with the Vital Signs cd being the sound to me growing up and still played weekly to this day. I'm so pleased that I saw him at Firefest in 2011 and he was everything I hoped he would be.

A true legend and as the song says It's The Singer Not The Song! RIP Jimi.

Everyone at Rockgig sends out our condolences to his family,friends and the Survivor family.
