Planet Rock, the U.K.'s classic rock station, is celebrating Jimi Hendrix by airing an hour-long special on this phenomenal guitarist. Planet Rock talked to a whole host of guitarists who told the station why Jimi Hendrix is "the guitarist's guitarist." The likes of BLACK SABBATH's Tony Iommi, JOURNEY's Neal Schon and QUEEN's Brian May (to name but a few) each gave their point of view and experiences of Jimi Hendrix's music and told Planet Rock why he is such an extraordinary player. The show will also feature some of his all time classic songs as well as new ones from his brand new album, "Valleys of Neptune", released on Tuesday, March 9.
This special will air only twice: Saturday, March 6 at 6 p.m. and Thursday, March 11 at 11 p.m. (U.K. time).
