About the author

My name is Tommy Pettersen, I was born in 1957. I live in Norway, and work as a teacher of media and design in the Norwegian school system, the 11th to 13th grade.I started listening to Jimi Hendrix in 1972. My first Hendrix record was Axis: Bold as love, the German Karusell-edition with the polarized photograph on the cover. I didn’t like it that much at first, I found it very noisy and a bit scary and unsettling at first. But it grew on me, you might say.I play the guitar, have been for the last 40 years. I love it!
