Jimi Hendrix Was Thinking Ahead in His Last Interview (A Top Story)

On Monday Jimi Hendrix Was Thinking Ahead in His Last Interview was a top story. Here is the recap: (Classic Rock) Jimi Hendrix was planning to put two bands together just before his death, but he wanted a little time to think things through before he embarked upon the next stage of his career.

He talked about his aims for the future in an interview recorded by press agent Keith Altham a week before he passed away on September 18, 197 and broadcast in full for the first time on TeamRock Radio's Classic Rock Magazine Show last week.

Hendrix discussed the aftermath of bassist Billy Cox leaving his lineup, saying: "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 being 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 said he'd realised there was no point in paying attention to the hype surrounding his career, but that he didn't want people separating his live performance from his writing. "I'd hate to be in one corner, put only as a guitar player, only as a songwriter, only as a tap-dancer or something like that," he reflected. "I like to move around." - A lot more.
