Jimi Hendrix was a known rock guitarist and singer in the U.S. Following a very short but successful career, Hendrix died at the age of 27. His last seen photo was an image of him and his favorite guitar, ‘Black Betty’, by his girlfriend.
He died the next day from barbiturate-related asphyxia in London. He is said to have choked on his own vomit after taking a mixture of drugs, including a large dose of sleeping pills.
