Jimi Hendrix’s last public performance was at Ronnie Scott’s, in 1970. During the afternoon of September 15, Hendrix was asked by his friend Eric Burdon, if he wanted to participate in a jam session at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club. Hendrix accepted, but when he arrived at the club that evening, he was not allowed to play.

Less than two days later, tragedy struck and Jimi Hendrix died in London on September 18 at the age of 27.
