This is a tribute to legendary guitarist Jimi Hendrix, who died in 1970. The verse is about sitting around doing guitar licks, and the "Voodoo Magic" is a reference to Jimi's song "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)
" and to drugs (which Jimi openly used while recording). The line, "We're glad for The Experience, we'll miss you now it's gone" is a reference to The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Jimi's massively influential band. The line, "Does everyone have a different take" refers to Jimi again, as he never played a song the same twice - every take was different. The line "Does everyone get hypnotized by your fire" is a reference to Jimi again, as Hendrix is famous for lighting his guitar on fire on stage and everyone was 'mesmerized" by his fire. "We all wish we wrote this song" because astonishingly there has been few tribute songs for Jimi. And "Life goes on" because every guitarist in the world today is influenced by Hendrix in some way despite his death.
