My Jimi Hendrix’s Last Supper film is going to be a little thing, a single shot with just a tiny dose of Hendrix in it. What appealed to me was the soundtrack; a piece of non-typical Hendrix just the right shape and size to fit a Tuna Sandwich.
Interesting Hendrix facts…
As a child he was inseparable from a broom-handle that he carried around as a pretend guitar. His social worker advised that leaving the boy Hendrix without a guitar might result in psychological damage.
Hendrix first made it big in England in 1966, not in the U.S.
His newly formed band played their first gig in London to an audience that included John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Eric Clapton, Pete Townsend, Mick Jagger and Brian Jones. Gasps of ‘Jesus’, ‘shit’ and ‘damn’ were uttered.
In London he lived in the same building as Handel and listened to his music; two musical geniuses living in a foreign country separated by 250 years.
