’69 Woodstock Performers, Where Are They Now Part 2 Of 3 – Jimi Hendrix [VIDEO]
As Richie Havens was the opening act, Jimi Hendrix was the closing act at Woodstock. Interestingly enough a lot of attendees didn’t get to see him perform.

It’s reported that he choked to death from to much wine and sleeping pills.
His band members at Woodstock included Billy Cox (bass) pursued a solo career and found work as a session player.
Juma Sultan (congas) became a session player for a number of jazz artists.
Jerry Velez (percussion) found work as a music director, event producer and did some collaborating with various artists.
