JIMI HENDRIX...Winterland (2011)
(5 CD Box Set, 1 CD, 8 LP/1 CD Box Set, 1 LP)
We were reluctant to put this on the list as 1. it isn't anything newly recorded, obviously, and 2. most of this material has been released before on previous releases. However, this is digitally remastered and was released by the Hendrix estate. The music here is outstanding, as expected. Hendrix was a genius at his craft. Winterland is drawn from six stellar shows recorded over three days (Rocktober 10, 11 and 12, 1968) at San Francisco's historic Winterland Ballroom

Scotty Moore is 80; Mike Pinder formerly of the Moody Blues is 70; Mick Jones from Foreigner is 67; Larry Byrom formerly with Steppenwolf is 63; David Knopfler from Dire Straits is 59; Guthrie Govan from Asia is 40; Dean Bernardini of Chevelle is 38; Hayley Williams of Paramore is 23;

1962 Gene Vincent has a bone graft to repair his leg that he injured in the accident that killed Eddie Cochran
2005 Best Of (Chapter One 1997-2004) by Sevendust is released
2008 Gregg Allman's home in Richmond Hill, Georgia is robbed. All stolen items except for a pistol are recovered
2008 Delaney Bramlett of Delaney And Bonnie dies in Los Angeles due to complications from a gallbladder operation. Bramlett was 69
