Gay Hendrix

(BW&BK) Rock legend JIMI HENDRIX pretended he was gay to get out of the US Army, a new biography reveals.

Hendrix was discharged from the 101st Airborne division in 1962, launching a musical career that would redefine the guitar, leave other rock heroes of the day speechless and culminate with his headlining performance of ‘The Star-Spangled Banner' at Woodstock in 1969.

Hendrix's subterfuge, contained in his military medical records, is revealed for the first time in Charles Cross's biography, Room Full Of Mirrors.[see full story for more - look for antiMusic's review of the book later this week] - Click here for the Full Story
