On Tour: Experience Hendrix

Dweezil Zappa’s playing is elegant, with an odd, yet appealing side.


It’s time for a night of extreme guitar! Experience Hendrix features some of the best guitarists around today, ready to take audiences on a hard-rockin’ journey down Jimi Hendrix Boulevard.

The show features axe-slinging from the likes of Buddy Guy, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, and Jonny Lang. Songs like “All Along the Watchtower,” “Belly Button Window,” and “Foxy Lady” will certainly be highlights. With a dozen guitarists, including former Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Zakk Wylde and the wacky riffs of Dweezil Zappa, this is one show no musician—or Jimi Hendrix fan—should miss.

The music of Hendrix is iconic, as are some of the players on this tour. When Wylde left Ozzy, he did so to create Black Label Society. Dweezil Zappa, son of Frank, is basically rock ’n’ roll royalty, and his playing is elegant, with an odd, yet appealing side. These players are just right for this type of tribute. | Marc Farr
