One of the most influential guitarists of the 1960s, Jimi Hendrix was described by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as "arguably the greatest instrumentalist in the history of rock music." The post-mortem examination concluded that Hendrix aspirated his own vomit and died of asphyxia while intoxicated with barbiturates at the age of 27.
