Is there anyone in Rock history more badass than Jimi Hendrix? His latest album People, Hell and Angels featuring previously-unearthed material was recently released and even debuted at number 2 on the Billboard charts. To support the album’s release and to honor the guitar legend, Janelle Monáe headed over to Late Night With Jimmy Fallon and performed the Hendrix classic “Little Wing” alongside The Roots and Kellindo Parker on guitar. The cover was indeed pretty good. “Little Wing” is easily one of Hendrix’s best songs and it proves its timelessness as it sounded just as soulful, powerful and fresh as ever through Monáe’s rendition of it.
