This super iconic tee has seen a lot of loving over the years and has a lot of personalized touches, from its cut neck and sleeves to its beautifully aged graphic. All of its color and imagery have taken on a cool muted tone, including the wild tie-dye- very rugged rocker feel. 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. Cut neck and sleeves.
