It was 40 years ago today… God Bless Jimi Hendrix Nov 27th 1942 – Sept 18th 1970
Group therapy: ‘Wild Thing’ in Blackpool by The Jimi Hendrix Experience, feral and filthy and fun and regal and still legal… And now:
“Gonna leave this town, yeah
Gotta leave this town
Gonna make a whole lotta money
Gonna be big, yeah…”
The whole of this clip is mesmerising, from Jimi on twelve-string acoustic to Jimi in the limo overloading on Jazz Woodbine with Jeanette Jacobs and another girl. From the superb film ‘Jimi Hendrix’ by Joe Boyd.
God Bless you, Jimi. And Noel and Mitch too. And thank you for the magic x
