Official Rules

Jimi Hendrix A-Z

The Center for Popular Music hosted a virtual discussion with Dr. Mike Alleyne, professor in the Department of Recording Industry at Middle Tennessee State University, who recently published The Essential Hendrix: An A-Z Compendium. The book focuses on the people, places, and music associated with Jimi Hendrix. It has been fifty years since the death of the rock icon, but his influence endures. The discussion was moderated by Public History Doctoral Student Katie Rainge-Briggs. 


Listening parties

Relax and enjoy one of popular listening parties from the comfort of your own home. We want to create the same type of experience that our in person listening parties have. So, we have created a Google Classroom Discussion session where you can share your thoughts and opions about the listening parties.
