Fact #159765


Short story:

The Jimi Hendrix Experience record an instrumental demo of the song Little Miss Strange at Sound Center Studio, New York City, USA. They also record the song Somewhere, plus My Friend, which features Stephen Stills on piano. Later that evening Jimi plays at The Scene Club with The McCoys.

Rick Derringer (guitarist, The McCoys) : Jimi was very nice and a true gentleman. A lot of other guitar players would get up and jam with Jimi. Most of them would take the spotlight and continue playing until somebody said 'Shut up.' Jimi would always encourage other people to play and jam, but would always wait until the very last before he played his thing. My guitars were stolen once from The Scene and Jimi lent me four of his guitars, but they were all backwards. That was the only problem.

Ken Pine (guitarist, The Fugs) : He called me at home one afternoon, which really surprised me, as I had not spoken to him for some time. He asked if I would play twelve-string guitar on a session he wanted to do. He was looking to add a bluegrass, country-rock feel. He picked me up,and we parked in a parking garage near the studio. He had the wide-brim hat with the feather in the band. The attendant looked at him as if he was from Mars.

Paul Caruso : We cut two takes of My Friend. Kenny Pine was on twelve-string guitar, Jimi was on bass, Jimmy Mayes was on drums, and Stephen Stills who, except for the piano in the introduction, didn't contribute anything else.
