Pictured here is rock legend Jimi Hendrix, or as he was still known as in this photo, Johnny Allen Hendrix. Even back in elementary school, Hendrix had a habit of rocking out… of course it was with a broomstick he’d pretend was a guitar.In 1957, Hendrix happened to find a ukulele tossed out in a trash heap, so he began following along to Elvis songs.

By mid-1958, Hendrix was 15-years old and the proud owner of his very first acoustic guitar, which he scored for a whopping 5 bucks. Within three months of playing with his band the Velvetones, he knew he had to go electric.

The French model, actress, and singer was the original blonde bombshell who began her career in the arts as a dancer. From a very young age Brigitte was an aspiring ballerina and very dedicated to her craft. When she was just seven years old she was enrolled at the Cours Hattemer private school and only attended three days a week. The other three days she spent in dance lessons at Madame Bourget’s dance studio. Perhaps this is where all her seemingly effortless grace comes from. Brigitte Bardot’s style, grace, immense talent and her passion for animal rights, has heavily influenced culture as a whole.
