Jimi and Bob Dylan: A Cosmic Friendship

Jimi Hendrix knew good lyrics when he heard them. When Richie Havens gave Jimi the lyrics to All Along the Watchtower, an epic inter-racial music exchange took place, the likes of which never yet bested. Jimi Hendrix the All Along the Watchtower poetry and filled it with energy and guitar genius, and meshed it with his psychedelic experience. Hendrix was a poet himself, writing most of his songs, but the number on best selling single of his career was All Along the Watch Tower.
