Google+Reddit

Over at Financial Times, writer Ian Gittins wrote an awesome history of the classic rock song “Hey Joe”. Made famous by Jimi Hendrix, “Hey Joe” was actually sung by a few bands prior to Jimi making it his own.

After Jimi, a few more bands tried to rock “Hey Joe”, but they paled in comparison to Jimi’s version.
