* ArchivePanic: He only released a handful of (very influential) studio albums in his lifetime, and one all-original LP recorded live (''Band Of Gypsys''), but the amount of released demos, live recordings, alternate takes, rehearsals, runthroughs and incomplete studio outtakes seems staggering. New Hendrix releases still arrive on store shelves more than 40 years after his death, a staggering amount given his short lifespan. And there's more that as of 2012 await release, like the ''Black Gold'' demos.

* SequelFirst: In the video game world, the RockBand platform to be specific, ''Axis: Bold as Love'' was released before ''Are You Experienced'' (though the latter's track list is a little different from the original LP). * ShortLivedBigImpact: One of the most influential guitarists of all time; the "burn the strings" guitar solo was invented by him, and just about every hard rocker since has imitated it. He was also dead by age 27.
