Stephen Stills Says Unheard Jimi Hendrix Tapes Are Usable

(Classic Rock) Stephen Stills has been through the tapes he made with Jimi Hendrix, but believes almost none of the material they jammed together is usable.

He's paid tribute to his friend for teaching him a lot about guitar playing. And he's admitted there won't be another Crosby, Stills and Nash album, because the trio would never finish the work.

He spent many happy nights playing and talking with guitar icon Hendrix, and recently trawled through their recordings in a hunt for songs which could be made public.

"A lot of it us waiting for somebody to start something. It isn't really usable. It deteriorates into giggles and then the tape stops," He tells Music Radar. "There's a couple of things in there now the family has worked their business out I've done some of the things I did at Electric Lady with him. I've finished a couple of those. There's one song that's sitting there in want of a lyric. There's babbling but no good lyric."
