About Al Hendrix

From Find A Grave:

Father of guitar legend, Jimi Hendrix. Al grew up in Vancouver, British Columbia, with performing aspirations, training in dancing and boxing. The Depression forced Al into earning a living instead. Settling in Seattle in 1940, with his first wife Lucille Jeter, and had a son Johnny Allen, in 1942, later renamed James Marshall Hendrix. He was responsible for buying Jimi his first beat up old ukulele, which he taught himself to play. Al was once quoted as saying about his son Jimi, "I told him one time, when you get into the music, into doing your thing, do something original, do something different.' He sure did."

Al is survived by his son Leon and his daughter Janie.
