NEW YORK: Jimi Hendrix celebrated the opening of his Electric Lady Recording Studios at 52 West 8th Street in NY’s Greenwich Village on August 26, 1970. On Sept. 18th that year the iconic 27-year-old guitarist passed away. In addition to his lasting musical legacy, Hendrix left a studio which continues to this day to produce hits for artists ranging from Dylan, Bowie, Coldplay and The Stones to Patti Smith, U2, Sheryl Crow, The Strokes, Jay-Z and Beyonce.

On August 24th the NY Section of the Audio Engineering Society will host a 40th Anniversary Salute to Electric Lady and the Hendrix legacy. The panel will include: Jimi’s sister, Janie Hendrix, CEO/President, Experience Hendrix; Eddie Kramer, engineer of all Hendrix’s recording sessions; studio architect/acoustician John Storyk who began his career with Electric Lady, and who’s international Walters-Storyk Design Group has created over 3,000 studios around the globe; long time Electric Lady engineer Tony Platt (AC/DC, Foreigner), and Grammy-winning engineer Bob Margouleff (Stevie Wonder) Other guests, TBA, will include artists who have recorded at Electric Lady throughout its 40-year history.

AES New York Section Committee Member David Bialik reports, “Our goal for this dual event is to honor one of the longest-lived studios in NYC’s history. And, to pay tribute to the indelible mark its founder has left on contemporary music.

“While admission is limited to 60 attendees, CBS will provide streaming of the event via the AES Website www.aes.org/ny as artists, engineer/producers and studio designer reminisce about Hendrix and his studios’ amazing history,” Bialik concludes.
