He starts the performance by putting on a piece of cloth around his head in the classic Hendrix fashion. Then he talks to the audience in a voice resembling that of the legendary guitarist.

Meanwhile, Daily Rock Box quoted Winslow talking about his style of comedy, “It’s a bit of this, a bit of that. There are visuals, jokes, and, of course, sound-effects. And a few surprises.”

Winslow also declared himself as a “vocal gymnast” who performs to help his audience forget about their “rent.”

Previously, Winslow also provided spectacular vocal effects for a character named Stripe in the “Gremlins.” Speaking about his ability, he said, “It’s amazing what a human being can do when you want to play with noises.”

Another fabulous impersonation of Hendrix also came from actor Andre Benjamin in the 2014 movie, “All Is By My Side.”

The John Ridley directed movie covered the journey of Hendrix to stardom, especially the time he spent in London before the release of his 1967 hit album, “Are You Experienced.”

Hendrix is almost universally regarded as one of the greatest guitarists and singers of all time. The icon passed away at a young age of 27 almost 48 years ago on September 18, 1970, but his music lives on to this day.
