I friend of mine put this up on Facebook. I've never seen Jimi playing bass before,
and never knew he played with Johnny Winter. I'm thinking that's Buddy Miles on drums?
Great shot, eh? 8-)

That's not the real Jimi Hendrix either. That's Colin Hendrix who worked as a lookalike.

My drummer and I drove Johnny Thunders through the bowels of Frisco in 1979 to score dope.
(We didn't do dope - we did everything else) Does that count? :mrgreen:

Actually, you do. Azlbrax (Ian Bruce-Douglas) partied with Hendrix; Jimmi gave Ian a Strat as a gift

I've seen the pics :lol:

Steve Marriot only gave me a pack of Luckys.

I was invited to the after party, but I had no wheels. You try getting around Sacramento without wheels!

Not really. he was designed that way :)

Although Colin does have some differences with the real thing. He is still alive for starters. He now lives in Rhode Island with his devoted mother and spends most of his time knitting armadillo jackets.

A little known fact about Harry Hendrix was that he had a pet hamster called Neville who he used to take on gigs dressed as a fireman. That's Neville btw. Not Harry.

Also Jeff Skunk Baxter was actually called Jeff Perfume Baxter. But his PR company refused to allow that to become public knowledge as it was considered not good for his manufactured image of being a macho rocker.

Yep! I would go on and say I love that band...however I only know them for "I Loved You More Today Than Yesterday" but I love that song! I believe on the way to that job I actually had heard that song on the radio...when I asked who's the drummer in the house (I saw a set of drums and one of those Tascam all-in-one 8 track reel to reel recorder/mixer machines) he said he is, then told me who he was etc.. I said.." hey, I love that song...what else did you guys do" ..he said that's about all I'd recognise and admitted they were a one hit wonder basically. He said something like the lead singer was bought out for about a million dollars for the songs rights...? by who he didn't say. While the drummer got into selling houses for a living, I saw the singer on TV do a PBS show with a sorta big band thing going on....he performed "I Love You More Today...."
I've got the original LP that that single was off of. I'll "burn" it and send it to you if you like. The rest of the tune aren't bad -- kind of like early Chicago

On the back cover of the LP, one of the band members looks exactly like Saddam Hussein

I bought the LP because it was something of an "our song" between me and my girlfriend Sallye at the time... the song didn't turn out to be accurate in our case, however :lol:
