Jimi Hendrix Revealed Two Bands Plans In Final Interview
He talked his future in an interview with press agent Keith Altham, recorded a week before he died on September 18, 1970, and played in full for the first time on TeamRock Radio this week.
Hendrix was asked if his next lineup would be big or small and replied: "I think I'll get a small one together. It's really hard to decide. I'd like to have both, if I could. I'd get two guitarists – one myself – an organist, a singer, drums and bass. That would be out of sight."
He admitted he wanted to appear live less often because "it would count for more if we did less." But asked if the excitement had gone out of music for him, Hendrix said: "No. I was feeling like that before, because I was thinking too fast. It's hard to know what people want sometimes – right now I can't feel anything. I just need to lay back and think about it all."
The guitar icon had realised there was no point in paying attention to the hype surrounding his career, but he also didn't want people separating his live performance from his writing.
