Song For Jimi

Album: not on an album (2011)
  • Unlike the Phil Lynott song of the same name, this Mark William composition lets the music do the talking. According to the man himself, "The main melody...just walked on to my guitar one day".
    He also sums up the Hendrix legacy accurately "[he] was not a technical wiz but he did influence a generation of kids to learn about music". >>
