The last photo ?

...

This photo of Jimi Hendrix was taken the day before his death on September 17, 1970.


That is probably his last photograph when he was alive, disgusting but there were some pictures of his dead body (police pictures) in circulation on the net. Didn't save them, not sure if they were fake or real

56 Years Ago: Jimi Hendrix Gets Fired Halfway Through His First Gig
by Jeff Giles February 20, 2015 10:59 AM


...
Experience Hendrix / Legacy



If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. And while you’re trying again, think about Jimi Hendrix, who made it halfway through his first guitar gig before being fired on Feb. 20, 1959.

The show was a bit of an odd fit from the start. Hendrix, 16 years old and living in Seattle at the time, had been invited to audition for a local band — whose name has sadly been lost to history — during its two-set performance at the Temple De Hirsch Sinai synagogue. As Jewish Currents notes, the future guitar legend wasn’t the person in the building who’d later go down in musical history: The temple’s music director at the time, Samuel E. Goldfarb, co-wrote “The Dreidel Song.”

Unfortunately, Hendrix and Goldfarb would never get around to bonding: Jewish Currents’ report recalls that Hendrix’s “wild playing and show-off style (dropping to his knees, sticking out his tongue, flailing his arms) got him fired before the second set.” This wouldn’t be the last time his flamboyant style cost him a paycheck, either; as the post goes on to note, he’d also end up being fired by Little Richard and Ike Turner. Clearly, he needed to be the star of his own show.

Of course, things worked out pretty well for Hendrix once he started his solo career — and while this show remains a little-discussed footnote in an amazing legacy, novelist Lily Brett may have opened a window into his feelings about the firing in her novel Lola Bensky, a semi-autobiographical book that drew on Brett’s own experiences as a teen music writer to tell the story of a young girl who rubs shoulders with some of rock’s biggest stars.

“It didn’t go well,” laughs Hendrix in the book after telling Lola that his first gig was in the basement of a synagogue. “I was fired between sets. … I was trying to play from my soul, and the other band members thought I was showing off.”

New Jimi Hendrix Documentary Focuses on Historic Atlanta Pop Concert

'Jimi Hendrix: Electric Church' film will be preceded by 'Freedom: Atlanta Pop Festival' live album


BY DANIEL KREPS, August 3, 2015


...
Chris Walter/Getty



The Jimi Hendrix Experience's July 4th, 1970 performance at the Atlanta Pop Festival will be the subject of a new documentary and live album. Jimi Hendrix: Electric Church, a film about the guitar god's Atlanta Pop set and the circumstances surrounding it, will premiere on Showtime on September 4th. The DVD/Blu-Ray release of the documentary will follow on October 30th with bonus content not shown in the televised version.

The documentary will feature interviews with band members Billy Cox and the late Mitch Mitchell as well as Paul McCartney, Steve Winwood, Kirk Hammett, organizer Alex Cooley and more. The Atlanta International Pop Festival also marked the largest American audience Hendrix ever performed in front of, as an estimated 300,000 people witnessed the rock great play in Byron, Georgia, 100 miles south of Atlanta.

The recording spans much of Hendrix's catalog, from Are You Experienced's "Foxy Lady" and "Red House " to posthumously released tracks like "Straight Ahead" and "Room Full of Mirrors." Since the concert took place on July 4th, Hendrix naturally delivered another stunning rendition of "The Star Spangled Banner."

Jimi Hendrix: Electric Church will be preceded August 28th by Freedom: Atlanta Pop Festival, featuring Hendrix's July 4th, 1970 16-song set. That live album will be released via Experience Hendrix and Legacy Recordings as a 2-CD or 2-LP vinyl set. The first 5,000 vinyl copies will be numbered individually.

Freedom: Atlanta Pop Festival Track List

Disc 1

1. "Fire"
2. "Lover Man"
3. "Spanish Castle Magic"
4. "Red House"
5. "Room Full Of Mirrors"
6. "Hear My Train A Comin’"
7. "Message To Love"

Disc 2

1. "All Along The Watchtower"
2. "Freedom"
3. "Foxy Lady"
4. "Purple Haze"
5. "Hey Joe"
6. "Voodoo Child (Slight Return) "
7. "Stone Free"
8. "Star Spangled Banner"
9. "Straight Ahead"

I chased Jimi Hendrix on to his coach for his autograph and now it's made me thousands


Plucky Lynda Huckerby's 50-year-old autograph has been sold at Etwall auction



A rock fan who chased guitar legend Jimi Hendrix for his autograph at the height of the swinging 60s is thousands of pounds better off thanks to her teenage bravado - more than 50 years later.

Lynda Huckerby, 65, was with her step-sister at a concert in April, 1967, when the self-confessed groupie saw a "posh coach" pull up outside a Leicester concert hall and the rock star climb aboard.


Without a moment’s hesitation, Lynda, then 15, followed in Jimi’s footsteps. She said: "It was Sunday, April 16, 1967, and I had bought tickets to see The Walker Brothers at Leicester’s De Montfort Hall. It was a star-studded line up. Jimi Hendrix was a support act along with Cat Stevens, Nick Jones, The Quotations and Engelbert Humperdinck.


...
Lynda is pictured at the age of 17


"I was a bit of a groupie back then. In fact, I had tried to climb on to the stage at the concert that night but the security men got hold of my legs and pulled me off.

"I was at the concert with my step-sister Gaile Barrs, who was also 15 at the time. We lived nearby and were hanging around after the concert when this big, posh coach pulled up at around 10.30pm. We watched as it parked up, then Jimi came out of a side entrance and got on the back of the coach.

"I said to Gaile 'quick, I’m grabbing him'. I ran onto the coach, there was no-one else on board, met him in the middle and just plonked myself down next to him.



...

"I said 'can you sign my autograph please?' He took it all in his stride and signed my concert programme 'To Linda – Love & happiness, Jimi Hendrix'. I didn’t have time to tell him it was Lynda with a 'y'. His bassist, Noel Redding, signed it too.

"It was all done in a few seconds and I dashed off the coach which was empty except for me, Jimi and Noel, and maybe one other person.

"I laugh about how cheeky I was back then – but I still am. Nerves? I don’t get nervous - I’m a Leo.

"I suppose I was a bit of a hardcore groupie in the 1960s. It was such an amazing musical era and I saw The Kinks, The Who, The Rolling Stones – many of the greats."

Lynda, from Leicester, now retired from her job as an NHS breast cancer worker at Glenfield Hospital and married to husband Michael, said she was prompted to dig out her Jimi Hendrix autograph after reading about Anthea Connell, who sold her Hendrix autograph for £5,700 at Hansons auctioneers in Etwall.

She said: "I didn’t realise it could be worth so much. It has been gathering dust in the loft and various cupboards over the years. It is the only celebrity autograph I have ever managed to get."

The rare signature sold for £3,800 - nearly double its £2,000 estimate to a music memorabilia collector, last month.

The Derby buyer, who wished to remain anonymous, was delighted to secure the autograph after missing out on a Jimi Hendrix love-note signature sold by Nottingham’s Anthea Connell for £5,700 in October at the same auction house.

He said: "I was a room bidder for that one but the price kept going higher and higher and I had to pull out. This time I managed to buy Jimi’s autograph and I am really pleased."

After the sale he met Lynda and explained why he wanted her autograph so much. He said: "I have been collecting music memorabilia for around 14 years and have around 200 autographs including 10 to 15 grade A ones – very rare star signatures.

"I have all the Beatles except John Lennon, Elvis and Led Zeppelin. Jimi Hendrix is part of the 27 Club, artists who died at the age of 27 such as Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse.

"I plan to keep the autographs for posterity and pass them down to my relatives."

Despite Lynda’s fearlessness when it comes to approaching musical legends, she admits she was worried the sale would not go through.

She said: "I was nervous the sale might fall flat on its face and nobody would want it. To get £3,800 for something that has been gathering dust is amazing. I would have been delighted with £2,000.

"It was lovely to meet the buyer and know that the autograph is going to someone who will enjoy it. I plan to spend it on some nice holidays with my husband."

Clare Howell, music memorabilia valuer at Hansons, said: "Jimi Hendrix autographs are special because they are fairly rare. That is because he died young at the age of 27 in 1970. I love the fact that Lynda ran on to a coach to get to Jimi. Her cheek has proved to be a very valuable asset."
