Electric Ladyland: The Enduring Legacy of Hendrix
Decades after his tragic death in 1970, Jimi Hendrix continues to inspire countless souls. From the elusive Hendrix chord to deluxe box sets, the singer and guitarist's legacy is long out of his hands, part of a much larger lexicon of followers, be it elders of yesteryear or newcomers who weren't even around for the '90s. In our final episode revolving around Hendrix and Electric Ladyland, host Ernest Wilkins attempts to answer, "Why?"It's a tough question, sure, but Ernest isn't alone for the trip. He's joined by another legend himself in Megadeth's Dave Mustaine, who will soon embark on the Experience Hendrix tour, in addition to poet and author Hanif Abdurraqib, whose book of essays, They Can't Kill Us Until They Kill Us, topped year-end lists by Buzzfeed, Esquire, NPR, Oprah Magazine, and The Chicago Tribune.

Electric Ladyland: The Cinematic Immortality of Hendrix
From Easy Rider to Forrest Gump and Wayne's World to Woodstock, the legacy of Jimi Hendrix has certainly been aided by the eternal power of cinema. Host Ernest Wilkins is joined by musician and actor Mykele Deville, Daily Grindhouse editor Mike Vanderbilt, and Consequence of Sound Editor-in-Chief Michael Roffman to trace back the lineage of the legend on celluloid.However, that lineage is parallel to a long standing relationship with pop music and film, one that may have been exacerbated by the late axeman himself. To find out, the four step out to enjoy a 30,000 foot view and discuss the larger cultural impact of music in film and how Hendrix’s music itself is interwoven into American culture through iconic movie moments.  For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy
