SPB: What is your favorite 1960s artist?
Mike Bruno: My personal favorite ‘60s artist is definitely the Jimi Hendrix Experience. Jimi Hendrix, of course is one of the greatest guitar players to ever live, if not the best. His band, the Jimi Hendrix Experience (that existed mid-late ‘60s composed of Noel Redding and Mitch Mitchell) are definitely one of the most electrifying 3-piece power trios in rock ‘n’ roll history. They do not get enough credit at all. They were tight as hell, but still somehow displayed a care-free, almost punk (but psychedelic) "looseness" to the music. Really listen to any of the studio albums they appeared on together ("Are You Experienced", "Axis: Bold As Love", "Electric Ladyland") or watch any footage of the band live and you'll find it pretty damn hard to argue.
