With more than 8,000 Jimi Hendrix artifacts in its collection, the Experience Music Project could devote acres of gallery space to the Seattle guitar legend who transformed rock 'n' roll in the late 1960s.


"It's kind of crazy that someone who died at 27 accomplished so much in such a short number of years," said McMurray, who joined the museum in 1994 and was co-curator (with Jim Fricke) of the last major Hendrix exhibit in 2003.



Visitors can listen to a number of early Hendrix singles, among them "Hornet's Nest," a bluesy, garage-rock song recorded in 1966 by Curtis Knight and the Squires (featuring Hendrix).


At the entrance to the gallery is a mock stage that shows Hendrix in the flamboyant green-and-yellow costume he wore at the Isle of Wight Festival, as well as at his last Seattle show in 1970.



The remainder of the gallery (which includes artifacts from the Hendrix family and Experience Hendrix) is divided into the five stages of his career -- the Seattle Scene (1942-61), the Chitlin' Circuit (1961-65), The Village (1965-66), the Jimi Hendrix Experience (1966-69) and the World Stage (1969-70).



Another interactive area allows visitors to sample the sound-effects devices Hendrix used.

"Before Hendrix, sound effects were only used to accentuate the sound of a guitar," McMurray said. "But Jimi was really one of the first people to use them as instruments in themselves.
