This sketch was inspired by a photo of Noel Redding. Here is a short info about him from Wikipedia:
David "Noel" Redding (25 December 1945 – 11 May 2003) was an English rock and roll guitarist best known as the bassist for The Jimi Hendrix Experience. Redding was the first person to join the Jimi Hendrix Experience, and the first to leave. His final concert with them was in June 1969. With the band, he participated in recording the 3 landmark albums "Are You Experienced", "Axis: Bold as Love", and "Electric Ladyland", as well as performing in some of Hendrix's most celebrated concerts. His playing style was distinguished by the use of a pick, a mid-range "trebly" sound, and in later years the use of fuzz and distortion effects through overdriven Sunn amps.
