On this day in 1970, 27-year-old Jimi Hendrix died.
Like the early death of Jim Morrison, Hendrix died under mysterious circumstances.
Like Morrison, the political side of Hendrix was obscured by the news media.
Morrison was the son of rear admiral George Stephen Morrison who commanded the US Naval forces during the Gulf of Tokin.
Then of course there was John Lennon, the Beatle who wrote anthems to peace and loudly opposed the Vietnam War. He was shot down in cold blood by a “lone but” in a narrative that still makes no sense over 40 years later.
