THE NEWS AND OBSERVER, Raleigh, North Carolina, September 19, 1970
* Jimi Hendrix dies in London of apparent drug overdose
* One of the best (if not the best) guitar players of all time
The front page has a small one mention with an accompanying photo announcing the death of the beloved guitarist, Jimi Hendrix. Page six has the 3-column heading: "Rock Star Jimi Hendrix Dies in London; Age 27", with supporting text (see images). Hendrix stands among only a few whose names are synonymous with the cultural shift of the 1960's.
The newspaper is complete in 22 pages, a few small binding holes along the spine, nice condition.
