“still rocking out for fans at Broadway and Pine!”
This bronze statue of Jimi Hendrix (a Seattle native), considered one of the greatest and most influential guitarists in rock music history, is located in front of the corporate offices of AEI Music Networks on Broadway Avenue, just north of Pine street in the Capital Hill/Broadway area of Seattle.
A really neat tribute to a local hero. It's not uncommon to see Hendrix all dressed up around local celebrations like Pride, or with flowers and guitar picks laid out in remembrance. A definite photo op when in Seattle. Can't miss it, right across the street from Dick's (one of the best burger joints in the city).
If you want to see some even better Hendrix stuff, take a visit to the EMP Museum right next door to the Space Needle. There's a ton of his broken guitars, old letters, costumes, and more. They've got so many pieces of Hendrix history that they dedicated a whole wing to it.
When you visit be sure to bring something to leave behind. More often than not the statue is covered in guitar picks, cigarettes, strings, scarves, flowers, and bottles of booze just to give you a few suggestions. This is as much a staple as leaving your gum on the wall at the Pike Place Market.
Once we put in that it was EAST pine street it was easily found. Right in front of the Blik art supply store. The statue was clean with no gifts.
