Fact #88583


Short story:

Jimi Hendrix flies to Toronto, Ontario, Canada, to face drugs charges, with business associate Bob Levine plus witness Sharon Lawrence and Jeanette Jacobs.

Full article:

Bob Levine : Hendrix had a limousine pick me up at the office on 37th Street. On the way to the airport, I couldn't help but notice that he was putting a bunch of things into his guitar case. I didn't know what they were but I had to ask. I said, 'Jimi, we are going to be going through customs.'

'Don't worry, Bob,' he promised, 'we're cool.'

When we arrived in Toronto, he passed through customs and promptly got arrested. I had to call (lawyer) Henry Steingarten from a pay-phone at the airport. Steingarten thought I was calling to let him know that we had arrived safely, but I cut him off with, 'Henry, sit down, you are not going to believe this. We are still at the airport and Hendrix has been busted again.' Steingarten went berserk.
