Hendrix left no will. He fathered two children out of wedlock but his own father, Al Hendrix, legally denied them any claims on the estate, to which he became sole heir. A gardener by trade without any knowledge of the music business, Al Hendrix hired a lawyer who in 1974 sold the rights to Jimi’s music to a Panamanian tax shelter in a deal that would see the elder Hendrix receive a fixed annual annuity. To complicate matters, rights to Hendrix’s likeness were sold to a different company.
