Stone Free: A Tribute to Jimi Hendrix, originally released in 1993, was recorded by various artists in tribute to the influential guitarist. The artists were drawn from many genres of popular music.

Contributors include his classic rock contemporaries Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck, blues man Buddy Guy, classical violinist Nigel Kennedy, alternative bands like Pretenders, Chris Cornell, Belly and The Cure, P.M. Dawn and more.

According to the liner notes, the 'artists were encouraged to not only record one of their own personal favorites but to also place their stamp on Jimi's songs'. Several artists recorded radically different interpretations, particularly, P.M. Dawn, the Cure, Nigel Kennedy and Pat Metheny. Some artists, on the other hand, recorded versions that were rather similar to the originals. The band M.A.C.C. is made up of Mike McCready (guitarist from Pearl Jam), Jeff Ament (bassist from Pearl Jam), Matt Cameron (drummer for Soundgarden and later for Pearl Jam), and Chris Cornell (singer of Soundgarden and later Audioslave). Eric Clapton's backing group on the title track includes the three original core members of Chic (Nile Rodgers, Bernard Edwards and Tony Thompson) and is the last recording on which all three played together.
