Jimi Hendrix's long lost Yekkishe ancestor?

James Marshall, or Jeremias Meyer Hendrix? From 1821.

  2. Those Germans.
    Not only do they have a language that is so hard on the ears, they also choose a font that is so hard on the eyes!

    2. I am. Maybe. But I don't know if you can make that inference because I know Voodoo Child. That's not exactly an obscure song. Now if I had referenced Jimi's 2 track recording of Act Naturally on 7 string banjo when he was 14...

    Looks like Holland from the names of the cities. BTW, Hendrix was the way the Dutch Jews pronounced the Spanish-Portuguese family name Enriquez / Henriquez.

  6. For sure I had a nevuah-like experience when I first heard Piamenta play "Little Wing" at the Wetlands in 1995.

    1. Well, if a חֶבֶל נְבִאִים went with 'psaltery, and a timbrel, and a pipe, and a harp' I would imagine it was more like Jimi Hendrix and less like [redacted so as not to embarrass anyone].
