Jimi Hendrix’s Memorial: Drake Pays Visit To Gravesite
Toronto native and hip hop superstar Drake took the time to visit Jimi Hendrix’s grave while in Seattle where he played at the Bumbershoot festival. When asked what made him visit Jimi Hendrix’s gravesite, Drake said the following:
I’m a huge fan — I play the DVD of Hendrix at Woodstock to pump me up before I perform. Watching him go out there at 10 in the morning in shitty weather and conquer the crowd always gives me a little more adrenaline. I just left a little letter for Jimi at his grave.
We don’t doubt for a minute that Jimi Hendrix is inspiring energy for Drake before he enters the big stage, Hendrix was a very upbeat performer that just captivated the audience.
