    I hate rock but have always loved Jimi, you can still stay at the Samarkand where he snuffed it in Notting Hill. I think he was murdered. I know YT often has 'rare' to describe stuff but this actually is. Recorded at his flat in Brook St that he shared with Kathy Etchingham, a groupie from Derby, shes's on the bed at the front, horrible woman IMO but he could never say no and attracted scum. Danneman was even worse and lied her head off about his death.

    I've heard before that he was murdered.
    Apparently he had just found out his manager had been ripping him off big time.

    I cannot reason how this Bob Dylan song and the Vietnam war had anything in common apart from the fact it was written around the same time.

    Some interesting trivia is that both Mitch Mitchel and Noel Redding got the hump when recording the song (hendrix was a perfectionist) left the recording studio, and Hendrix played drums and bass in their absence.

    What we hear today is Hendrix 100%, bass, drums, guitar and Vocals but credits were still given to them.

    Continued to perform and record with them thereafter, as Jimmy was loyal to his crew.

    Aside, I believe Mr. Hendrix was wrongly perceived [generally speaking] by society and history. Jimmy was exceeding intelligent, well-read, and quite articulate outside of his innovative artful genius.

    A version from the original song "Hey Joe" a couple of years earlier - The Leaves.

    I met Zuma Sultan several times when i was living in NY, as he was a frequent houseguest of my landlady's. (He's the guy who played percussion with him at Woodstock). He believed that Jimi was done in for sure...he said he was asleep on the couch at Jimi's 5th ave apt last time he ever saw him. Jimi stuck his head in the room to say goodbye, then got on the plane for Paris...
