Very interesting and felt incredible to see Jimi's grave. It was a dry but cool weather day when we went and it felt amazing to see this iconic man, "Jimi" his grave. Such an honor to have it in Renton, WA.

My oldest son had to stay home , but he is a very devout fan, so he asked me to place a flower on his monument , and take lots of pics, so I did.The grave site is beautiful,and very impressive.

Definitely one of the highlights of coming to Seattle was being able to pay my respects at Jimi Hendrix's grave. A bit out of the way and you'll probably need a car to go see it but so worth it if you are a fan. Just try and not sing Little Wing to yourself for the rest of the day... More

Happen to be in the Seattle area for business (I always knew he was from the area). When I was in the hotel the night before driving home I was searching for things close. Found that the cemetery was literally a mile and half from me, and I was going to drive right past as I left town. While I... More

I have been visiting Jimi every year for at least 30 years...and I have brought countless visitors from all over the world to see where the great legend rests. There used to be a simple non-descript headstone with a Strat engraved on his headstone...but it was replaced with a large monument...I still think there should be something more "memorable" to...

Kind of cool, as Jimi was famous. People leave mementos. But still just a grave site. If they had relocated his house it would have been better. Still worth seeing if you are a Hendrix fan.

A must see if your a fan of the great Jimi Hendrix. It was covered in Flowers, cigs, blunts and teddy bears.... More
