The Hard Rock Cafe Las Vegas at Hard Rock Hotel (man, that's a mouthful) recently participated in the charity bike run for Bikefest. This Cafe sometimes gets overlooked because its larger, splashier sibling resides right on The Strip, but make no mistake, this Cafe knows how to rock. And they proved it by knocking this party out of the park. And a good time was had by all!

10.01: Jimi Hendrix found his bass player, Noel Redding, on this day in 1966. Joining Hendrix and Redding, shortly thereafter, Mitch Mitchell rounded out The Jimi Hendrix Experience. Though they would only put out three official albums and last for less than three years, the band remains one of the most influential of the '60s rock era, in no small part because of Hendrix himself, but also due to the rapport between Hendrix, Redding, and Mitchell.

10.01: Coming full circle, Jimi Hendrix was buried on this day in 1970 in Seattle, Washington, where he was born. His death was the first of three that would effectively end the '60s bright glow. All dying from drug- or alcohol-induced causes, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Jim Morrison each only made it to the tender age of 27. Hard to believe, with the way their influence still holds today, that they didn't even make it three decades in this world. R.I.P., Friends.
