Hard Rock Cafe Rome Memorabilia
Shortly after his performance at the infamous Isle of Wight festival on August 31st, 1970, Hendrix donned this amazing patchwork suit and boarded an airplane bound for Sweden. The pressures and hassles of fame had worn Jimi down by this point- he wasn't a happy man. Maybe he intended for this festive outfit to raise his spirits. If so, it didn't work. Within the week, he'd play his final concert. Twelve days later, he was gone.
