Jimi Hendrix Would Be Proud Of Janelle Monáe’s ‘Little Wing’ Cover With The Roots

That neglectful SOB Jimi Hendrix was supposed to play a selection from his new album, People, Hell, and Angels, on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon yesterday, but he was a no-show. More like Purple Laze-y. In stepped Janelle Monáe, who with the Roots, not only performed a soulful cover of “Little Wing,” but also saved Hendrix’s butt.

Man, that guy had better step his game up or no one’s gonna remember him after he dies.
