For those Hendrix fans in the great Northwest, if you havent already heard of him, check out Randy Hansen...quite an impressive artist with great performances of Hendrix' material, as well as many other artists.  (actually, he's on a tour in Germany/Italy soon).   http://www.randyhansen.com/fr_welcome.cfm

A couple of years ago I saw a guitar player, who I remembered from playing in the little village I come from. I was about 14 then and his were some of the first concerts I attended. When I saw him again, I also thought he'd be much older, but that must have been because in the past those 6, 7 years between us, seemed much more.

I'll make another plug here for the expanded three-disc MPF set. I started with the extra bits (interviews, etc.) on disc 3 before getting into the actual show. It's very informative, as well as highly entertaining!

For example:

 

  • While other acts played onstage, Jimi was jammin' backstage with his new friend, Jack Casady. The latter would subsequently knock out that killer bass line on Jimi's Voodoo Child, all because of this initial summit meeting.

  • Mike Bloomfield, late of the Paul East <> West Butterfield Band (and the first electric incarnation of Dylan at the Newport Folk Festival), debuted his newly-formed (with Nick Gravenites, et al.) Electric Flag at Monterey.

  • And that Eric Burdon song? "His majesty, Prince Jones," who smiled as he moved amongst the crowd, was none other than Rolling Stones' founder, Brian Jones.

  • Cream were advised by their manager, Robert Stigwood, that they weren't ready for the U.S. market without having a radio hit, and so missed the event that brought both Hendrix and the Who into our collective conciousnesses.

  • Along with the Mamas and Papas' John Phillips, other organizers of the event included Johnny "Secret Agent Man" Rivers and Beatles' press agent Derek Taylor. Paul McCartney served on the initial advisory board.


 
I loved all that stuff! Electric Flag!

Jimi & The Who

I knew they had all met at different times, I had just never seen this picture of them all together before.  It's the only picture I'd ever seen of Jimi even touching a Rickenbacker - I assume it's Townshend's.  They all have pretty funny expressions on their faces.

 
Hendrix & Townshend had a backstage argument at Monterey Pop about who was not going to follow the other on stage. Towsnhend won & Hendrix followed The Who onstage to make his American debut.......and the rest, as they say, is history.

The Bag 'O Nails was one such popular London hangout frequented by the up-n-comers.

EDIT: The other was the Scotch of St. James.

Interestingly, Hendrix once jammed with the just-formed Cream at one of these clubs. I think this was mentioned in The House That Ahmet Built, a great rental from Netflix.

If you get a chance visit the Experience Music Project in downtown Seattle. It's kind of a shrine to Hendrix as well. Spent a day there last month with my youngest and we had a blast.
