Jimi Hendrix for the NDA

Hey-hey. Wouldn’t you rather party with someone who turns the music up, fires up the motorcycle and rides in wheelie mode all the way down a twisting highway, screaming into the wind? I know I would. I’m Jimi Hendrix for the National Dead Association. And I’m here at my cemetery. It’s where the party is, so won’t your join yours? The best friends you never met are in a cemetery!
