For those not familiar, every New Year they launch a fireworks display from the Space Needle in Seattle. I wasn't going to watch, but then I heard Hendrix blasting with the fireworks! I went and watched, apparently it was all music from Washington, with Nirvana and Pearl Jam. I'm not sure what played before Hendrix though... I just thought that was awesome. The fireworks sucked again though... On a side note, at my school (Centralia College) we have a clock tower with plaques of notables in history, Mother Theresa, Magellan (I think), and Hendrix is among the 16 spots. Did I mention Vern Fonk is from Washington?
