40 years ago today, on November 17, 1968, one James Marshall Hendrix played a rock show at Yale's own Woolsey Hall. Before he almost tore down the place (literally -- the combo of his loud amps and Woolsey's bad acoustics did permanent damage), Hendrix played a mere 3-song set consisting of "Foxey Lady", "Purple Haze", and his famous rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner". Was this the greatest popular music event ever to happen at Yale? Other than Sean Kingston's '08 spring fling performance. Obvs. What do you think?
