46 YEARS AGO: JIMI HENDRIX JOINS MONKEES TOUR
by Dave Swanson July 8, 2013


...



What do you get when you cross a psychedelic guitar genius with one of the world’s bestselling pop bands? A frustrated guitarist, a disappointed band and a bewildered and confused audience.

As unlikely as the match-up sounds, the Jimi Hendrix Experience joined the Monkees during the summer of 1967 for a short run of concerts. The rising guitarist joined the tour on its first date in Jacksonville, Fla., on July 8, and stuck it out for six more shows, exiting after a run of three concerts at the Forest Hills Tennis Stadium in New York City on July 14, 15 and 16.

Both Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork had attended the Monterey International Pop Festival in June and saw Hendrix’s groundbreaking performance. Like everyone else, they were knocked out. “Micky said, ‘We gotta get this guy,’” recalled Tork in the documentary ‘The Monkees Story.’ “Micky was just enthusiastic about his music.”

“You can’t imagine what it must have been like for an act like Jimi Hendrix opening for the Monkees,” Dolenz wrote in his autobiography ‘I’m a Believer.’ “It was evident from the start that we were witness to a rare and phenomenal talent. I would stand in the wings and watch and listen in awe.”

Tales from the tour reveal that everyone involved got along great. “He was such a sweet guy,” said Tork. “It was really just a pleasure to have him around for company.” But the group’s young audiences, as well as their parents who often accompanied them at shows, didn’t feel the same way.

“[The parents] were probably not too crazy about having to sit through a Monkees concert,” said Dolenz, “much lees see this black guy in a psychedelic Day-Glo blouse, playing music from hell, holding his guitar like he was f—ing it, then lighting it on fire … Jimi would amble out onto the stage, fire up the amps and break into ‘Purple Haze,’ and the kids in the audience would instantly drown him out with, ‘We Want Davy!!’ God, it was embarrassing.”

Tork said that “it didn’t cross anybody’s mind that it wasn’t gonna fly.” But rumors began to surface that Hendrix was asked to leave the tour after the Daughters of the American Revolution complained about his “lewd and indecent” conduct during performances.

Legend has it that Hendrix flipped off the audience as he left the stage on that final date. Either way, Hendrix decided enough was enough, and asked to be released from his contract. “I was sorry to see him go,” wrote Dolenz. “We did have some great times, running around the New York City psychedelic scene like kids in a candy store, tripping at the Electric Circus and jamming until all hours of the night in the hotel room.”

Shortly after Hendrix left the tour, both ‘Purple Haze’ and ‘Are You Experienced?’ started to climb the charts, revolutionizing modern music in the process. And in certain parts of the world, the Monkees were viewed with just as much respect. While they were considered mostly a disposable pop band in the U.S., in the U.K. the Monkees were seen in a different, more kaleidoscopic light. A Melody Maker critic wrote about the band’s tour of England in 1967: ”I suddenly realized the Monkees were actually freaking out properly and much better than many of the much vaunted psychedelic groups.”

Well Voodooo I must disagree on a couple of points.

First :"one of the best rock musicians ever " - for me Jimi was much more than that - he was the most important (if not influential) musician of the 20th Century whatever the genre. the only rock musician that deserves the epithet "genius".

Second , "one of the worst pop acts ever". As far as pop bands go they weren't too bad (imho) see Last Train to Clarkesville, I'm a Believer, Daydream Believer, Listen to the Band and You Just Maybe be the One. Also their tripped out movie "Head" (with jack nicholson) was pretty hip/out there (although it did border on the incomprehensible) for a manufactured pop group.

Following on I think Mike Nesmith with the First National Band had some excellent stuff. see Joanne and Different Drum.

There's a lot more pop groups worse than the Monkees even amongst the "manufactured" ones like The Archies (not even real people) and let's not forget The Partridge Family - although as a "manager" Rueben Kincaid was hilarious.

Hendrix was largely unknown in the U.S. until Monterrey Pop, so I guess it figures that he'd have to be an opener on his first tour of the States. It happened to the Who in the same year. They opened for Herman's Hermits!

I am drunk.

Therefore I say that the Monkees were awesome when they were good, tiresome when they bad and awful very few of the times. They were a marketed band: try to picture a marketed band as that, today; impossible. I love them Monkees.


C'mon. Not everybody in this life has to be like Hendrix.

On an early U.K. Package Tour, Hendrix shared the bill with Cat Stevens and Engelbert Humperdinck. The headliners were the, err, Walker Brothers.

On a latter U.K. Package Tour towards the end of 1967, he'd progressed to sharing the bill with The Move and Pink Floyd. Slightly more credible, I guess!

Yes, very cool indeed. This tour included a stop in my hometown, too. On December 1 1967, The Jimi Hendrix Experience performed at the Central Theatre in Chatham, Kent. Setlist :-

- Sgt.Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
- Hey Joe
- Purple haze
- Wild Thing

Being such a short set, one can tel he was part of a package!

Going a bit OT Honky Tonk Man.
You are from Chatham, Kent?
Tony Zemaitis, who built many guitars for Ronnie as well as for many other great Rockstars lived in Chatham, Kent.
His house, called "The Myrtles" was in Walderslade Road.
Don't know if his widow and son are still living there.
Did you know him?

I was born in Chatham, Kent, but raised in a neighbouring town called Gillingham. I think Stewed n Keefed - a friend and Gillingham neighbour - may have mentioned the Zemaitis connection with the area, actually. I didn't know the gentleman, but I certainly do know where Walderslade Road is!

I never cared about Hendrix. So he could play the guitar with his teeth. So what? Noise is most of what I hear. God bless him. I'd rather hear some boring fart like Mile Davis, and I'm no jazz aficionado. Cross that. I'd rather listen to a Brian Eno ambient album and at least not having to worry about anything at all. I admire Hendrix; but his music bores me for the most part.

I like "Angel," though.

47 YEARS AGO: JIMI HENDRIX EXPERIENCE MAKES THEIR LIVE DEBUT
by Dave Swanson October 15, 2013


...
Express Hulton Archive, Getty Images


The Jimi Hendrix Experience made their live debut 47 years ago this week with four dates in France.

Upon his arrival in England, the guitarist’s manager, former Animals bassist Chas Chandler, introduced Hendrix to drummer Mitch Mitchell and bassist Noel Redding, the duo who would become the Experience. After only a week of rehearsals, Chandler put the band on the road supporting French singer Johnny Hallyday.

The opening date was at the Novelty in Evreux, France on October 13, 1966 and the trek wound up on the 18th at the Olympia Theater in Paris. Also on the bill were Long Chris, The Blackbirds and for the final date, the Brian Auger Trinity. Less than a week later, the Experience would make their debut in the UK.

Their opening night set was short, but sweet, and included ‘In The Midnight Hour,’ ‘Have Mercy,’ ‘Land of a Thousand Dances,’ and ‘Hey Joe.’ In his autobiography, ‘Inside The Experience,’ Mitchell recalled the changes that took over Hendrix once he got onstage: “It was on this first gig that we saw the whole other person, completely different from anything I’d seen before” he said. “I knew he played really tasty guitar, but I didn’t know about the showmanship that went with it. It was like, Whoosh! This man is really out-front!”

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.



...
Lynda is pictured with her Jimi Hendrix autograph


"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."

Jimi Hendrix Way Proposed For NYC Street

by Best Classic Bands Staff



A campaign is underway to co-name the portion of Manhattan’s West 8th Street, where the iconic Electric Lady Studios is located, as Jimi Hendrix Way.

New York has long had a tradition of awarding honorary street names to many of its most famous residents—others include concert promoter Bill Graham, jazz giant Miles Davis, and the Ramones. You can sign the Hendrix petition on the website.

The studio in New York’s Greenwich Village was a basement space that had been The Village Barn, a country and western nightclub, and then later a rock club, Generations. Hendrix had bought it to start his own music venue but instead installed the first artist-owned recording studio there.

The cutting and control rooms were designed by now-renowned studio architect and acoustician John Storyk. Its interior and decor were created with the comfort of musicians in mind. Electric Lady Studios‘ money-saving mission went mostly out the window as Hendrix insisted that the studio have the best equipment and the ideal design touches.

On August 26, 1970, Hendrix hosted the opening party for such classic rock stars as Steve Winwood, Eric Clapton and Ron Wood. Hendrix only got to spend about four weeks recording at Electric Lady as it was in the final stages of construction. The day after its opening he did one final session there, then flew the following day to London, where he died some three weeks later.

As the petition’s website notes: “Jimi Hendrix’s cultural impact on New York’s Greenwich Village is immeasurable. For almost 50 years, music’s most celebrated recordings have been produced right here on West 8th Street at Electric Lady Studios – the facility Hendrix himself created in 1970. From Patti Smith, Stevie Wonder, David Bowie, and the Rolling Stones to Lorde, Frank Ocean, St. Vincent and Adele, Hendrix’s inspiration and influence is still felt to this day.”

Although many of New York City’s independent rock recording studios have closed in recent years due in part to the digital recording revolution, Electric Lady has survived.

Also a 6-LP box set (180 g) and the Bluray, I think this is the one for me



...



In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the release of The Jimi Hendrix Experience masterpiece Electric Ladyland, Experience Hendrix and Legacy Recordings present a special Deluxe Edition box set.

Spread across 6 180 gram LPs in 3 gatefold jackets and 1 Blu-ray the set includes: LP 1 & 2: the original double album, now newly remastered by Bernie Grundman from the original analog tapes. For the LP set, Grundman prepared an all analog direct to disc vinyl transfer of the album, preserving the authenticity.

LP 3 & 4: Electric Ladyland: The Early Takes, which presents 20 never before heard demos and studio outtakes. Included are incredibly intimate demos for song ideas Hendrix recorded himself on a reel-to-reel tape at the Drake Hotel, as well as early recording session takes featuring guest appearances from Buddy Miles, Stephen Stills and Al Kooper

LP 4 & 5: Jimi Hendrix Experience: Live At the Hollywood Bowl 9/14/68, part of Experience Hendrix's Dagger Records official bootleg series.

The recently unearthed soundboard recording captures the band and the mounting excitement that took place just weeks before the release of Electric Ladyland

Blu-Ray: includes the acclaimed full-length documentary At Last... The Beginning: The Making of Electric Ladyland, the first 5.1 surround sound mix of the entire original album ever overseen by Hendrix's original engineer Eddie Kramer plus the original stereo mixes in uncompressed 24 bit/96 kz high resolution audio.

Electric Ladyland Deluxe Edition includes a full color, 48-page book containing Jimi's handwritten lyrics, poem and instructions to his record label, as well as never before published photos from the recording sessions that were shot by Eddie Kramer himself.

All contained in a luxe casemade lift top box with new cover art which is true to Hendrix's original vision of the album's cover: a Linda (McCartney) Eastman photograph of the band and children at the statue of Alice In Wonderland in New York s Central Park.

10 years later, in 1978, Queen did the same for their "Jazz" album (with reference to "Fat Bottomed Girls")

Jimi Hendrix’s ‘Electric Ladyland’: 10 Things You Didn’t Know


A homemade kazoo, an intoxicated Brian Jones and other trivia related to the Experience’s final studio LP

“What rap did that was impressive was to show there are so many tone-deaf people out there,” he says. “All they need is a drum beat and somebody yelling over it and they’re happy. There’s an enormous market for people who can’t tell one note from another.” - Keef

IN the movie about the making "Electric Ladyland" you can see that Brian was really out LOL

"3. Brian Jones tried (and failed) to play piano on “All Along the Watchtower.”
Hendrix often encouraged other musicians to join in on his recording sessions, and Electric Ladyland featured several guest contributors, including Al Kooper, Buddy Miles and three members of Traffic (Dave Mason, Steve Winwood and Chris Wood). But when a certain member of the Rolling Stones showed up at Olympic Studios during the recording of “All Along the Watchtower,” his enthusiastic attempts to add a piano to the track were quickly foiled by his level of inebriation.
“None other than Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones stumbled by the session, decided to help out and play some piano,” Eddie Kramer recalled in At Last … the Beginning: The Making of Electric Ladyland. “I think he valiantly tried for a couple of takes, but it was abandoned, and they went back to cutting the basic track without him.” Not wanting to hurt his friend’s feelings, Hendrix moved Jones over to percussion; the rattling that punctuates the song’s intro is the sound of Jones hitting a vibra-slap."
