This 80s band tee has seen a lot of loving over the years giving it that perfectly faded and worn in look and feel. The tie-dye and graphics have taken on cool muted tones for that rugged rocker vibe.
This of course is the classic eyeball associated with the band Jimi Hendrix Experience. These legends of psychedelic rock were Jimi Hendrix, Mitch Mitchell, and Noel Redding.
Although the band was only active for three years (1966-1969), they made a very strong mark in the world of rock and roll. In this short time they released three studio albums, all of which were featured on the Rolling Stones' "500 Greatest Albums of All Time". In 1992, they were inducted in to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
The uber famous eyeball illustration featured on this tank top was produced by the artist Rick Griffin, and is easily one of the most recognizable symbols of the 60s psychedelic subculture. Poster art was very popular at this time and "The Flying Eyeball" quickly became influential, surpassing the bounds of San Francisco and gaining international attention. It appeared at music venues, bookstores, record shops, and awesome tees like this one.
Fits like a modern unisex adult large. Light spots on the front and two holes on the back, see pics. The graphics are faded.
