* ArchivePanic: He only released a handful of (very influential) studio albums in his lifetime, and one all-original LP recorded live (''Music/BandOfGypsys''), 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.

* BigNameFan: Where to start? It was Chas Chandler of Music/TheAnimals who became his manager in the first place and got him to England, but after that it was Music/PaulMcCartney who urged the organisers of the Monterey Pop Festival to put him on the bill, by which time more or less every rock guitarist in Britain from Music/EricClapton on down viewed him as TheAce. Music/MilesDavis admired him; Music/BobDylan thought that his cover version of "All Along the Watchtower" was better than the original; Gil Evans arranged his music for jazz orchestra, Music/{{Sting}} covered him, Music/FrankZappa owned one of Hendrix' guitars and had him appear on the album cover of ''Music/WereOnlyInItForTheMoney''.
* CreatorBacklash: Fans requested that the Experience play "Hey Joe" so much that he was utterly sick of the song.
* SequelFirst: In the video game world, the RockBand platform to be specific, ''Music/AxisBoldAsLove'' was released before ''Music/AreYouExperienced'' (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.
