Personalities | Tim Rose | Sixties | Rock

(Guitar, vocals, 1940–2002)

Rose was omnipresent in the clubs of New York’s vibrantly bohemian Greenwich Village when his arrangement of the murder ballad ‘Hey Joe’ was covered in 1966 as The Jimi Hendrix Experience’s debut single. ‘Morning Dew’ proved the hardiest of his own compositions via retreads by such as The Jeff Beck Group, The Grateful Dead and, in 2002, Robert Plant. That year, the late Rose issued a final album, American Son, a collection with all the virtues and few of the faults of a virtuoso performance.
