Jimi Hendrix Speaks!
Maybe His Last Audio Interview

Fascinating 30 minute interview with Jimi Hendrix, conducted September 11, 1970, a week before his death. What’s great about this tape, besides actually sounding good, is hearing Hendrix discuss his past and his future – coherently – with an interviewer who’s got some decent questions and who is actually listening to Hendrix’s responses. Jimi talks about his guitar god status, his plans for future bands, the departure of bassist Billy Cox, Black Panther pressure, Pink Floyd and the state of his own personal music vision. We’ve got more Hendrix in the archives.

    I just found your site and have added it to my blog roll. Welcome.
    Wow! What insight he had regarding audio/visual and the future of music. It is too bad that the "next thing" was disco. Thank you for sharing this.
