On October 14, 1967 The Jimi Hendrix Experience peaked at #65 Pop with “Purple Haze”, their debut American release.
Even though Jimi Hendrix racked up 7 pop hits in his career, the psychedelic blues guitarist would never chart R&B.
He would also end up having more hits in England then the United States.
Jimi toured with American soul acts like The Isley Brothers, before making it big overseas.
