First, I was wowed by the three panels that support the cover. The imagery / artwork is well done. There are iconic images of him playing guitar, some of his writing, all in the marble sides. Each part commemorates him beautifully. On the sides with his image, there were lipstick prints if many fans, kissing his face... And I felt... More

Everytime I come here it's a little different. I've been here in the rain and on a beautiful sunny day. Usually no one else around. It's really a beautiful spot and quite a tribute to one of America's greats. Not far from downtown Seattle.

It is a nice memorial to Jimi. He used to be out about 50 feet from where my cousin was laid to rest after being killed in Vietnam. Well worth a visit and some photos for anyone who is a fan of Jimi Hendrix.

An amazing tribute to an amazing and incredibly talented man. He made music...the somewhat newer monument is very beautifully done. It may seem as though you can hear the music.. Plan to pick up some Ezells chicken and spend some time with an old friend.

Such a nice memorial for a great artist. There's lots of parking and it wasn't busy at all when I went.

The memorial is at the west end of the cemetery across the street from McDonalds. Other visitors had left small tokens to honor Hendrix.

Hendrix fans should stop by and pay their respects but don't trash the place. Take a bit a time to walk around and view the other family memorials as well.

Glad I made the trip out here to pay my respects to Jimi. It is in a beautiful place and I liked being able to see Mount Rainier between the trees as I looked up from reading 'Well I stand up next to a mountain, chop it down with the edge of my hand' that is carved in stone on... More

Many people don't know that Jimi was from the small city of Renton, WA...in fact even though I live here, I didn't know that for many years. It is a small stone with a guitar etched into it and lies next to his grandmother's. I had expected it to be something elaborate, but no, just a simple marking and reminder... More

It's a cool monument to visit. The purple flowers all around it are a nice touch. No one else there when we visited, early morning during the week.
