SEATTLE - Jimi Hendrix's father wasn't gone a day before his family started fighting over him - or, more precisely, an estate believed to be worth more than $100 million. On April 17, just hours after James "Al" Hendrix passed away in his sleep, lawyers for Leon Hendrix faxed a letter to lawyers for Janie Hendrix. Leon is Jimi's 54-year-old brother; Janie his 41-year-old stepsister. Leon, the self-proclaimed black sheep of the family, was worried by what he thought were early maneuverings by Janie over Al's possessions.

For most aspiring musicians, the guitar is the symbol of cool. And for most angst-ridden teenagers all over the world, learning how to play the rock' n' roll catalyst is not always a simple task. That is why many Harford County residents have chosen longtime rock band frontman and guitarist-turned-teacher, Jim Bowley, as their teacher. Raised by a single mother who worked as a banker, Bowley, 45, graduated from Archbishop Curley High School, an all-boy school in Baltimore, in 1984 and then received a Bachelor of Science degree from Towson University in music education in 1988.

MONTEREY POP and JIMI PLAYS MONTEREY & SHAKE! OTIS AT MONTEREY -- Criterion -- $29.95 each It's almost impossible not to shed a tear while watching Monterey Pop, D.A. Pennebaker's transcendent celebration of the 1967 Monterey International Pop Festival. The festival itself, spread over three northern California days, was the first and the truest manifestation of what would become known as the Summer of Love, and that alone can make watching the film an emotional experience - a recollection of lost innocence for those of a certain age. If the spirit of the times alone doesn't get to you, then maybe the music will.

Touch a screen at the new Fort McHenry Visitor and Education Center and the sounds of "The Star- Spangled Banner," eight different versions, spring forth. Some feature singers who belt out the words, "the land of the free. " Others are instrumentals, some jazzy, some martial, and two more are waiting in the wings. To make it to Fort McHenry, these performances had to be serious and timely. "We ruled out any goofy versions," said Fort Superintendent Gay Vietzke, "or ones where the artists were simply seeking publicity.

Jonny Lang hadn't even been conceived when Jimi Hendrix died. By the time he was learning to play guitar, he'd missed the countercultural icon by more than 20 years. Singer Susan Tedeschi was born about two months after Hendrix died in 1970. Today, they're both accomplished musicians, with several Grammy nominations to their credit (even a win, for Lang). But on Thursday at the Hippodrome Theatre , they won't be playing their songs. They'll be playing Hendrix's. Lang and Tedeschi are two of the performers on the Experience Hendrix tour, a traveling revue-style concert that gathers some of the country's better-known musicians to perform two hours of Hendrix's catalog.

Fakies, nollies and kickflips. Skateboard tricks and the lifestyles of the kids who practice them could be a key to fitness into adulthood. A recent study by Johns Hopkins University researchers said regularly skating, Rollerblading and biking increase children's chances of fighting the flab as they grow. The odds were better than for those who played baseball and other organized, and often seasonal, sports. And better than for those in daily gym class, though those activities also helped kids keep slim.

Flipping through a section of Jimi Hendrix albums with slightly worn covers, Mike Moffo of Lansdowne stopped to consider the album Band of Gypsys, with a familiar photo of the rock legend in his kaleidoscopic glory. "I've got so many copies of this I don't really need another one," said the 44-year-old roofing contractor, wrapping up a visit to True Vine, a sliver of a store on The Avenue in Hampden that caters to vinyl record enthusiasts. "And it's a green Capitol label, anyway." To collectors like Moffo, who said he owns six or seven copies of the 1970 Hendrix recording, "green" means the fourth or fifth pressing - so far removed from the original that the album has little monetary value.
