Fact #157413


Short story:

In New York City, USA, Jimi Hendrix is interviewed by the East Village Other, then jams at The Scene Club with The Electric Flag, Soft Machine and The Tremeloes.

Full article:

Jerry Velez (percussionist) : I first met Jimi at a party in 1968 and then he heard me play a couple of times at The Scene. He would come by with his entourage and I would sit there with my conga drums, waiting for my turn to be called up. Jimi was sensitive and insecure to a certain degree offstage. He had this thing with Mike Jeffery that was very intense - like a love-hate relationship. Jimi was trying to get out of his contract.

Chas Chandler (co-manager, JHE) : He (co-manager Mike Jeffery) got into this idea that he and Jimi were acid buddies. You'd try and talk to them and it was like talking to an alien. I couldn't bear to stay around.
