Rock icon and legend, Jimi Hendrix, was a unique musician in this world. Born in Seattle, Washington in 1942, he learned to play guitar as a teenager and in the 1960’s, excited audiences with his innovative electric guitar playing. One of Hendrix’s most famous performances was in Woodstock in 1969, where he played “The Star-Spangled Banner.” Sadly, he died in 1970 from drug-related complications, leaving this world – and those who crave his music – too early.

Fortunately, his legacy lives on through his artistry and the last collection of photos captured one day before his death. The day before September 17, 1970, Hendrix stayed at the Samarkand Hotel with his girlfriend, Monika Danneman. As DangerousMinds reports, the pair spent the day strolling King’s Road, shopping for clothes, sipping tea in nature, and enjoying his favorite Fender Stratocaster guitar.

Following are the last known photographs ever taken of the rock guitarist who was only 27-years-old when he died. Years later, Dannemann revealed that Hendrix took nine of her prescription Vesparax sleeping pills, which is what caused an overdose.
