1 Twangmeisternyc 1 month ago Jimi would have been in the middle of his evening about now, after having seen Sly and the Family Stone play Royal Albert Hall.Eric Clapton missed him after the performance backstage, having brought a true "Leftie" Strat from the US he acquired during his last trip as a gift.Later, we all know the story...Sleeping Pills and Wine."Purple Haze" has been in my repertoire these last few months since playing around with my StratPlus and new Compound Radius neck."Purple Haze" has a new meaning, however, it's the result of the California Fires. Strange colors throughout the day...We've had just 2 clear days in the last month...but, several more in the "Purple AQI" scale.I still grin every time I think about Ronnie Wood living with Hendrix his first 2 weeks in London hoping to make it in the Music scene Fall 1966. Jimi would jam away on Ronnie's guitar "upside down" just to keep them talking and occupied throughout most of the day, leaving Ronnie wondering and frustrated as Hendrix was better than he playing his guitar.
