"Fire" is a song by The Jimi Hendrix Experience

The main lyrics in this song ("Let me stand next to your fire") came from a time when the band had just finished a gig in the cold around Christmas, 1966. They went to bass player Noel Redding's mother's house. When they got there, Jimi asked Margaret, the mother, to "Let me stand next to your fire" so he could warm up. They had a German Shepherd that way laying by the fire, which inspired the line, "Move over Rover, and let Jimi take over." (thanks, Jayson - Atlanta, GA)

Hendrix is legendary for theatrics like setting his guitar on fire and playing it with his teeth (not at the same time). This was the song he was playing when he set it on fire for the first time. At a concert in London in 1967, he doused his guitar in lighter fluid and burned it. The emcee at the show burned his hand trying to put it out.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers often covered this song in their early years. They decided to play it again at Woodstock '99 in Rome, New York and were accused of deliberately encouraging the rioters. While they played it, the crowd tore the place up and set fires (yes, Rome was burning). (thanks, Tom - Trowbridge, England)

Gary Moore covered this on his 1999 release A Different Beat. (thanks, Mike - Victoria, B.C., Canada)

In the movie Wayne's World, Wayne falls in love with the bassist from an all-girl band (Tia Carrere) after seeing them cover this song at Gasworks. (thanks, Jamin King - Puyallup, WA)
