"I want people to listen to the music and words together, as one thing. Sometimes you get wrapped up in the words and forget the music - in that case I don't think the song can be completely successful."

"It's only a dream
I'd love to tell somebody about this dream
The sky was filled with a thousand stars
While the sun kissed the mountains blue
And eleven moons played across rainbows
Above me and you."So timeless.

15Aug.1967 - "The wah-wah pedal is great because it doesn't have any notes. Nothing but hitting it straight up using the vibratro and then the drums come through and that there feels like that, not depression, but that loneliness and that frustration and the yearning for something. Like something is reaching out."

7 July 69! 'Dick Cavett' show:Jimi's 1st US TV appearance, billed as just 'Jimi Hendrix' [he was backed by the DC studio band]

DC : Do you think music has a meaning?
Jimi : Oh, yeah, definitely, it’s getting’ to be more a spiritual soul than
anything now. Pretty soon I believe that they gonna be-have to rely
on music to-uh, like, get some kind o’ peace of mind, or
satisfaction, direction actually, more so than politics, because like
politics is really an ego scene, you know, that’s the way… I look at
it anyway…
DC : Ego scene?
Jimi : Well, yeah, the …art of words which means nothing, you know. So
therefore you have to rely on a more of a earthier substance, like
music or the arts, theatre, you know, acting, painting whatever

DC : … I heard the expression, eh, an “electric church” as an ambition
you had. Was this speaking metaphorically or poetically or do you
really wanna...
Jimi : [Sighs] Oh, let’s see, I don’t know. It’s just a… a belief that I have,
y’know, it’s… an’ it’s-uh, we do use electric guitars. Everything, y’know, is electrified nowadays, y’know. So therefore the belief comes into, y’know, through electricity to the people, whatever. That’s why we play so loud. Because it doesn’t actually hit through the eardrums like most, eh, groups do nowadays, y’know. They say, “Well, we’re gonna play loud too, ‘cause they’re playin’ loud.” And they got this real shrill sound, y’know, an’ it’s really hard. We plan for our sound to go inside the soul of the person actually, y’know, tch. And see if they can-uh awaken some kind of thing in their minds, y’know, ‘cause there’s so many sleeping people-huh-huh You can call it that if you want to
DC : What do you like to hear, if somebody comes up after a concert,
what kind of complement do you like?
Jimi : I don’t know, I don’t really live on complements, matter of fact it has
a way of distracting me, an’ a whole lot of other musicians and ,
artists that are out there today you know. They hear all these
compliments, they say “Wow, I must have been really great…So
they get fat and satisfied, and they get lost, and they forget about their actual talent that they have, and they start livin’ into another world, you know
DC : That’s an interesting problem isn’t it you, eh, i-if. Someone said
about Janis Joplin,who’s a superstar now, do y-you know Janis I
expect...
Jimi : Superstar? Oh, yeah
DC : Well sh’-they-they did, yes she-I. Certainly is in my heart
[Laughter]
Jimi : I’m Superchicken huh-huh, and don’t you forget it
[Laughter & applause]

DC : Now I was going to say, ah, the problem of succeeding is a hard
one for you if your basis is, say, in the blues, or something like that, and you suddenly make hundreds of thousands of dollars a year. Someone said it’s hard to sing the blues when you’re making that kind of money
Jimi : Yeah
DC : This assumes that you can’t be unhappy and have a lot of money…
Jimi : Well sometimes it gets to be really easy to sing the blues, when
you’re supposed to be makin’ all this much money, you know, ‘cause, like, money is, it’s gettin’ to be out of hand now, you know, it’s, you know, and, like, musicians, especially young cat’s, you know. They get a chance to make all this money, and they say “Oh, this is fantastic” and like I said before, they lose themselves, and they forget about the music iself, you know
DC : Yeah
Jimi : They forget about their talents, they forget about the other half of
them, so therefore you could sing a whole lot of blues. The more money you make, the more blues sometimes you can sing, but the idea is, like-uh, to, you know, use all these hang-ups, an’ all these different things, you know, like, as steps in life, you know, just like drinking coffee, well you don’t drink it every day, or else you go into another scene with it, you know, like in excapes [sic], an’ all this

DC : Do you consider yourself a disciplined guy, do you get up every day
and work?
Jimi : Oh, I try to get up every day, once
[Laughter & applause]


10 Jul 69 the 'Tonight' show with Flip Wilson, Jimi's 2nd US TV appearance, billed as? (Jimi Hendrix? or Jimi Hendrix Experience?):

Flip : … So many people’s been asking because they’ve heardthat you regard your… performance as a spiritual experience… so, uh, if there’s … some comments you’d like to make about that we’d all be very interested
Jimi : Yeah, let’s see now, spiritual
Flip : I can dig it, I can dig it, baby
[Laughter]
Jimi : Ha-ha-ha-uh, yeah, somebody’s going to have to, heh, in here today
Flip : I’ll dig it.
Jimi : It’s a thing that, uh, it’s, I don’t know, after… goin’ to church for a
few times an' gettin’ thrown out o’ there because you’ve got tennis shoes on with a blue and black suit...brown shirt, the works…
Flip : Yes
Jimi : …and then after politics tell you this hogwash about this and that,
you know, you decide an’ say, “Well let me get my own thing together,” you know, and so music is my, my scene. My whole life is based around it. So quite naturally it comes to be even more than a religion. And so what I learn, through the experience of it, I try to pass on to other people, you know, through our music, so it won’t be so hard for them to go around. Like for instance all this violence, people runnin’ ‘round through the streets, you know. I can understand their point but, like, uh, if they dig the sounds and let the spiritual, look, it’s like church actually, you know
Flip : Yes
Jimi : .. just like church, how you go to a gospel church and we’re tryin’ to get the same thing through-uh, modern day music, you know...
Flip : I can dig it, very easily, there’s no problem, no…
<O></O>

Flip :. You’re Saggitarian also..
Jimi : Constantly
[Laughter]<O></O>
<O>
...
Jimi : Great to see you… Choc-ices get stoned too…
Flip : [reels a list of saggitarians] Sammy Davis, myself. … Sammy
Davis, Winston Churchill, Kirk Douglas, myself, Sinatra’s on the
seventh… who else? Maurice Chevalier
Jimi : I know quite a few of ‘em
[Laughter]

Flip : That’s the sign of great entertainers – Saggitarius
Jimi : Yeah…
Flip : That’s why I checked you out… I can dig it. I feel like we all got something to offer, you know, when we check to find our thing…
Jimi : All right, man
Flip : …We represent, in my opinion, God, and what we give to each other…
Jimi : Right
Flip : …and we’re all supposed to come here and put something in the pot, and go
? : Yes!
Flip : You know
Jimi? : Yes!
? : Yes!
Jimi? : [in silly voice:] Man!<O></O>
Flip : Don’t just come here, y’know…
Jimi[I]? : [in silly voice:] Amen!
Flip : …and suck up all the air! Y’know
[Laughter]
Flip : You loo’…
Jimi : …temple of God anyway, you know…<O></O>
Flip : I’d say
Jimi : …that’s why you have too have some kind o’ ideas on yourself, regardless of what you’re like outwards, you know?
Flip : Yes
Jimi : And, like, once you carry God inside yourself, well then you’re part off him, he’s part of you, you know? [a line from Jimi's "prayer"]
Flip : Well Jim, it’s my pleasure to extend an’ invitation to you to whip a light sermon on us
Jimi : Great
Laughter]
Flip : Yes. Jimi Hendrix! Ladies and gentlemen
Jimi : I’d like to say first of all this is Billy Cox our [The Jimi Hendrix Experience] new bass player. We’ll do a thing called ‘Here Comes Your Lover Man, Out The Widow I Can See Him’…

Your needs to save and be saved
from yourselves as crocodiles upon their backs,

We hand in hand shall tiptoe
across their sleeping, slowness
reaching the wings of birds of paradise
from your heights as I with my new companion;
continue to follow the path into the

the harder the rain falls…
the more the heart calls…
upon the easy rivers of hopeless
to be swept away…
prematurely

weather the storm and

Dance upon our naked EYES
stripped to only faith
as harvest ripens

“ELECTRIC STAGEHAND”
<o></o>
[untitled & unfinished]
<o></o>

1.
<o></o>
As long as you want to believe the world is a stage
then appoint me, your electric stagehand…
And I shall produce upon you an overwhelming hurricane
and sling you through to the VAST middle
and let your body there tremble but force to stand.
The middle, as calm as an untouched baby’s brain.
I shall let it drain away your clammy nerves.
And take my finger and scrape around the edge of the bowl
and in your subconscious ear I shall it serve
<o></o>
2.
<o></o>
And what you will witness will not be from limbs direct
but by proxy straight from your own script that you have
Your own poor devils toll
It shall scorch the ugly edge of your pale outside
which has no reality side at all…
But that’s the one part of your script
but not alone it belches from hell…
Are you satisfied, or do you want to stay the limit?
Since the young must obey the supporting roll<sup>1</sup>…
that you, by unnatural means invented;
I’ll make you witness the taste of your own part of your belief
or you shall be relieved.
Does that sound refreshingly thrown in your burning face?
EXIT; stage down in hope that forgetful History even forgets
the hurricane leaves before you finish off the world;
Thank God your act’s a disgrace
<o></o>
3.
<o></o>
Child, ruthless screaming wall…
See your children outside the swirling hurricane
with your blurred tears, laughing at your vision keen.
Wonder, don’t they where you learn how to bleed
and scream your home made pain.
Music goes by the rules of the present air.
Listen passively as my guitar howls and grinds
and unwinds and dines upon the spelling
of your given name…
You’re on stage!
Hear the world hurricane applaud…
See your reflection of your self made stage
as you are forced up to the spinning edge.
“The world is a stage, the world is a stage”…
You fool, you forgot your lines, or can’t you hear me;
Is the wall of sound ripping away your ugly ledge…
into, but not quite the walls of eternity…
Let’s hope the meal of yourself it will at least not digest
but as a grape may notice as a flavour…
of macaroni cheese old

“BURN DOWN THE CHURCHES”

[untitled & unfinished]
<O></O>
Burn down the churches
burn down the cross
Burn everything
that represents the lost..
<O></O>destroy the tobacco fields
where chemicals are born
to burn in your chest
Smash all the liquor houses
where the devil toasts to your death
<O></O>
It's time for a change
Time to rearrange
<O></O>
Burn down the religions
divided in which they stand ..
for what they preach
is money and games
for there’s only one God....
And that in the spirit of every man
<O></O>
We're not black against the white
We're the Now against the old
And they don't want to understand
tell them to at least stay out of the road
<O></O>
Because I can hear the new world ...
marching, trying to find it's Peace of mind
But the path to freedom will be well beaten ...
there's no room for the Hateful kind
there's no room for the ungrateful kind
there's no room for the ugly mind
<O></O>
So many good things come from the earth ...
but just as many bad as well ...
maruaanua stems off violence,
but in the same light ....
Bad Whisky is from the lakes of hell ...
<S><O></O></S>

Burn away the Bible
for too many finger prints of man
smudge the once true hope.
<O></O>
long ago clashes with today
Atomic power<SUP>1</SUP> can light our homes forever ...
but instead it is used for
Continental SIZE Graves
Only 1/1000,000,000<SUP>th</SUP> of the human mind
we find ourselves using
the rest we foolishly throw away
And so ignorant as we are,
As long as the money rolls ...
hold off those world wide happy tones
there’s money to be made from Killings and spades ...
forget your concience come have a bone.
<O></O>
But instead of all gnawing,
we are like cows in a meadow,
chewing our cuds an complain ...
and constantly kept pregnant
we tremble in the milk line,
painfully ruthlessly being drained ...
drained, drained -
<O></O>
Banquets and burps for
the owners of the land ...
As the sound of War drowns
out the dry hungry voice -
<O></O>
“Prisoners should be kept in shackles
and whipped for their crimes,”
says a man which the sign of death crosses
and hangs proudly from his neck.
hardly Never the criminal
is offered mental help ...
“Just pay the head chopper ...
He needs a raise anyway
So what the dawn, what the hell, what the heck.
Desease has wracked not only our emotions –
But our physical well – being as well.
And miracles come but you must wait,
you cancerous unfortunate son of a gun
<O></O>
the first option is claimed by Hell ...
Try it for making bigger War head propoganda
And they play the rat race game, “Buy and Sell” -
“And for Heaven Sake, clear away all
those waiting sick folks who
are laying down by the bell.”
<O></O>
Burn down the slums
their skeletons running with rats
Go back to the capitol and live
and rest in the Whitehouse
and don’t let them forget the facts.
Have teachers and tutors teach you
how to rebuild your homes
<O></O>
You know to you they owe
And if they don’t give in, fight fire with fire –
And then we all must
stand strong for free world life —
our weapon will be God ...
Who will be in our souls
just as we believe
in our Natural Human right
With so many miracles waiting in line .. .
our Babies even suffer delay.
Schools brain washing
traditional existance in minds
of the innocent by historical decay
<O></O>
Even the sun is hesitant to Shine ...
through slag filled clouds
that comes from crowds of factories
coughing waste, grit and grime.
Air can be cleaner, ,
but dear me would you dare think
of all that money to spend
Just to keep from breathing
filth and gaseous slime?

[Jimi was very into the latest scientific ideas, technology & predictions (see his comments in 1970 about the "star wars" [un-named at this time] anti-missile idea, which he, and I'm sure many others envisioned as a way out of the nightmare nuclear war threat for the World (what's all this dissin the World with a low case w? Hey, it's the only one with life we know of, even the most horrific of people are allowed a capital). So it's quite obvious that Jimi is here referring to the idea of nuclear fusion (at the time thought possible within a lifetime) as the following lines are accentuating that not enough high level research is being done in this direction]:

"Only 1/1000,000,000th of the human mind we find ourselves using, but instead it is used for Continental SIZE Graves."

[Most research being diverted towards the negative aspects of war/fission only]:

"The rest we foolishly throw away
And so ignorant as we are,
As long as the money rolls ...

That would not make any sense, in other words, where would the blood that Dolly drinks come from? - ;)

Mick Jagger!

'Dolly Brown' (Devon) became 'Dolly Dagger' after Mick cut his finger at a party and she very publicly licked the blood off his finger (etc.) plus her habit of 'stabbing' or injecting drugs

I think we can all guess where the doughnut bit comes in (Jimi along with the vast majority were not too aware of being offensive to a certain section of the community. vis a vis 'That old 'faggot' Superman' etc.)

There are hand written lyrics for 'Dolly Dagger' by Jimi but I've never seen them, maybe some kind person out there could enlighten us with a reproduction of these sheets?

2 scenes from Jimi's screenplay for 'Moon Dust' a music video:

*[also there will a scene during the raid where a conversation will take place, such as: *[dig this: A certain policeman will come crashing through the door with his friends, right, as we [Jimi Hendrix Experience] get ready to jam in the clubs. The police shouts, “Alright you hairlips, this is a raid.” And immediately chops off the head of some poor innocent head – which could be done with some wax figure and very fast camera work – There is confusion all around and blood, there is a T.V. screen in the corner showing a cowboy and Indian movie at the same time and the cop is the same as the cowboy on the screen and as the head tumbles off, the head says – not the body, the rolling head…
“But we are on private grounds, doing our own thing, we are in our own loving world…” or something of this order. The camera captures all other excitement, girls screaming, confusion and flashes to the T.V. screen and the cowboy says, as he chops the Indian’s head in half, as it rolls, “Yes and I am society and law and order…”
Someone gets blasted in two and meat and blood splatter the camera lens, dripples down the screen and the camera man gets knocked to the side. More sick conversation, more confusion…
Take one more swig from the acid bottle, grab a few joints from a cop who found some and lit one, just to see if it’s the good shit…
Bust the bottle over his head, grab the innocent girl[B]* by the hair, drag her through the commotion, and into a giant toilet bowl labelled, “Your last chance for miles.” Or “Let yourself go baby!”…
<o></o>
Then a bust comes with cops in old cars. Parks up beside Stinkwrays [Stingrays] and new dated cars – cops – old uniforms, axes and clubs breaks in and bust some people, regular old raid scene —:
Timeless bust sequence, starts off in freak out rock group, playing and feeding back, singing, “We’re floating in heaven,” light show etc. etc. then screen starts turning upside down, slightly breaking into old fashioned, pastel film and the musicians playing the instruments of 30’s. For this 5 minute scene we need : Stars and stripes, for the girls: red lipstick, type blazer, straw hats, but still some people with electric hair, big pot cigarettes, decked out in stripes, ashtrays advertising different brands of pot. Bottles of L.S.D. floating across the counter…
In other words, the same situation as speakeasys in the 30’s, compared to acid dens of the 60’s – the same thing.

sometimes, ‘cause you know really the truth of what’s happening, and sometimes people don’t really try to understand, you know, it’s like a circus that might come in town, so “Wow, I’ll watch that”, you know

Jimi : And then as soon as you fade away, well then they go on and feed upon the next thing, you know, but it’s all right, it’s just a part of life, I’m diggin’ it myself [quietly:] “Am I?”

Yes, that's it ! Blood donors - "doner boys". Nearly 40 years later and I finally understand the lyric. Bravo !My ears have always heard 'donor' since day one. Imagine MY confusion when I started to see 'doughnut' on various lyric sites. 'Doughnut' makes no sense given the overall theme of the song and has always made me wonder where or how 'doughnut' crept in. Oh well, ...

Guess we'll just have to wait til someone puts up the handwritten lyrics, which do exist.

The original A. Schroeder published lyrics supplied by Kathy Eberth have Doughnut as does every other published set of lyrics for this song that I have seen, even where they vary on other words. Mind you there are some strange blunders amongst some of these

"Speak electric water?!"

Yes, this is a mystifying phrase, maybe some New York or other argot. Another interesting piece of argot used by Jimi in 'Rainy Day' and also by Curtis-K: "Everything's gonna be everything" which in ordinary accepted use is meaningless, but obviously in their argot has the meaning "everything's going to be good". It may well stem from Georgia as Jimi was based there for a while and many of the musicians he worked with - including Little Richard and Curtis-K -came from that area. It is also recorded that Jimi chose to use grammar in his own style when it was suggested that it might be corrected to accepted usage for lyrics by Chas, Kathy-E etc. and although obviously aware of "correct" spelling chose to spell & pronounce the occasional word in his own way, possibly with a mildly humerous intent, as in "excape" ("Superman's lost his cape" maybe?) or "Rome and circus" for Roman circus etc. etc.

MELODY MAKER: ‘Jimi Hendrix, Pop Think In’ interview [21 January, <st1:address><st1:street>Montagu Square</st1:street>, <st1:city>London</st1:city></st1:address>]

JIMI ON VIETNAM: “After <st1:country-region><st1:place>China</st1:place></st1:country-region> takes over the whole world, then the whole world will know why <st1:country-region><st1:place>America</st1:place></st1:country-region>’s trying so hard in <st1:country-region><st1:place>Vietnam</st1:place></st1:country-region>.”<O:P></O:P>

[Jimi had started playing Wild Thing in the UK as a "combined British & American anthem" then as a kind of "International anthem" By December following Britains withdrawal from Aden, Jimi was prefacing Wild Thing with talk about the President getting his head together and bringing the US troops back for Christmas, he continued to introduce this song with anti-war talk well into 1968, even introducing it as an "anti-war anthem" at the Hollywood Bowl in 1967, but only specifically mentioning Vietnam in the vague scenario of the troops coming home and marching along playing electric guitars, instead of carrying weapons . This was eventually suplanted by his unusual rendition of the "Star Spangled Banner" then "Machine Gun", although all of these could be seen as ambiguous and he always spoke of support for the troops there. He had several old school chums serving there and ex bandmates, Jimi himself had narrowly escaped Vietnam. For Jimi being such a major "black" artist & associated with the stop-the Vietnam-war movement was especially dangerous at this time of assassinations, and racial conflict. He was careful to not speak directly about the war. Although he had spoken publicly in support of the Black Panthers - who were outspokenly anti-Vietnam war - but generally disavowing support for violent tactics. He also criticised the self burning & destruction of black neighbourhoods by rioters at this time. The Seattle Panthers including several ex-students of his old Garfield high school had paraded their weapons, in uniform, on the steps of the Washington Capitol in 1968 while handing in a petition against the proposed banning of publicly displaying weapons. He also frequently prefaced 'Machine Gun' with dedications to the troops in Vietnam and later Cambodia, as well as those "other soldiers" fighting in: and then a list of US cities where the Panthers "soldiers" were active, or there had been "black" rioting, thereby drawing a striking analogy between the war in Vietnam & the "war" at home in the US. Sometimes mentioning Bobby Seale (the founder of the Panthers) and his then current detention. Voodoo Chile was another song he introduced with talk of the Panthers on occasion, even introducing it as "the Black Panther national anthem" and on another occasion as "This is a Black militant song never forget it"]

Hi Sam,

Well, maybe I'm a bit cheeky, but to me, Jimi looks a bit like a hobo,

No proper house or intimity, not much possessions, bad hangers on everywhere... always seemed to me he somewhat got lost sometimes in 68. I mean not his music obviously, but as a person...

When I listen to Get my "heart" together again, I feel he really meant "head", and the town being New York, not Seattle...

But then, what do I know...

But, he's the only one I still listen to out of all I listened to in the past.

Jimi liked that image: Stone Free, Highway Chile, Band of Gypsys?


No proper house or intimity, not much possessions,

Not much point in buying a house if you're never there, he did stay in very nice hotels and when he was doing less touring rented an apartment in New York.
Not sure what 'intimity' means, if it means 'intimacy' I'm not sure what you mean by that either.
Not much possessions? well he bought several Corvette Stingrays loads of guitars and equipment, loads of jewellery, clothes, furnishings stereos etc.for his accommodation... Oh, yeah, a state-of-the-art recording studio!


bad hangers on everywhere...
Depends how you classify, what Jimi would call 'friends' others - possibly jealous? spurned? might call 'hangers on', let's not forget Jimi was reportedly quite 'bad' too!

always seemed to me he somewhat got lost sometimes in 68. I mean not his music obviously, but as a person...

Hey, how many big stars, with much less excuse have gone on a bit of a "holiday", what do you know, or anyone else really know about him "as a person" anyway? His Lps were high in the charts, the Monterey (only released in 1969) and then the Woodstock films were giving him publicity etc. Don't forget the Chalpin court case was settled at the end of 1968 with him having to give Chalpin his next LP so he was in no hurry to give it to him, much less with any of his new songs on it. he only gave it to him at the last minute, when he was anxious to finish his studio, go on tour to get cash for that and get his next LP finished, all of which was close to completed after he delivered Chalpin's LP (BOGs). At least he wasn't (as far as we know?) addicted to heroin like [so it's reported]: Keith Richard, Eric Clapton, Pete Townsend, John Lennon, Lou Reed, James Taylor etc.


When I listen to Get my "heart" together again, I feel he really meant "head", and the town being New York, not Seattle......

He sang that from October 1967 if not earlier and is similar in content to Red House.

But then, what do I know...

Hmm. Shakespeare p45 come alive!

Also like a- she has them for breakfast type of connation. I think that was what he was talking about. Also doughnut vendors can often be kids, so turning the great men with the world at their proverbial into these kids. Well thats my take on it. Such was her power sort of thing.

The blood apparently came from Mick Jaggers finger, he cut it and Devon licked the blood off it right in front of Jimi.. probably to wind him up or something i dunno... i can imagine them both winding each other up to see how far they could push each other... but hey, hence the lyric ` blood from a Jagged edge`. Thats where the blood came from.

Also I see it as `turned all the Lovermen into Doughnut Boys`. Guitar music books also have it writtan as that. Could be the turnin them into kids or it could have gay conitations. Either way, i can take it she`s not to be messed with.

ie opposites: red hot - block of ice; lover men [giving to women ] - doughnut boys [recieving from men (target of a doughnut puncher;-)]

Though I don't hear/see "donor" boys, I'll concede it is a possibility, but doesn't fit in with the concept too good - turn you from a lover man into a blood donor? they're both giving/donating;-)

Everyone should have their own opinion. but I'd just like to say that her name is Dolly Dagger. A dagger is a knife, which draws blood. we can call a stabing a blood donation. Therefore, "turning all the lovermen into donor boys" because she is cutting them or taking blood like a blood donation (think bleeding heart). Also

1). that phrase can refer to taking money or "tricking" in general (remember she was addicted to heroin and needed an income)

2). The main metaphor through the song is of dolly dagger taking blood

Either way, i think the second verse's meaning is way more confusing. Doesn't he say "sit on my face!" during the fade out in the last couple seconds of the song?? haha

stplsd is correct, even the 'official/EH authorized' Jimi Hendrix - the Lyrics cites 'doughnut' (I already mentioned this much earlier in this thread, btw). However, like everything else out there it does contain conflicts when compared to what Jimi either wrote or actually sang. For example, even in 'Dolly Dagger' this document has as the final lyric "... give me a little bit of that "thing". MY ears hear Jimi saying "heaven". I don't know about anyone else but I agree it is a bit confusing, especially when some of Jimi's hand-written lyrics don't agree with what was layed down on tape. And as for how he 'altered' the lyrics live on stage, well let's not even go there. So, all in all, in the end, it's like, ... er ... ummmm ... blah blah woof woof .... hey, whatever floats your boat peoples.

That's not what I said, I said every set of published lyrics has "doughnut."



hey, whatever floats your boat peoples.

Up to a point, but I think it's preferable to start from a reasonable interpretation, rather than accept & repeat the nonsense that many people have made of Jimi's lyrics (including Janie & McDermott on occasion), although their [?] attempts are closer than most of the twaddle out there.

Of course Jimi would usually write lyrics before recording, wheere he might change words here & there, many lyrics he altered radically, or discarded in the studio. But that is not to deny their value when interpreting a doubtfull word. It is hard to understand Janie & McDermott printing Jimi's writings which do correspond to the recordings ajacent to their blunders.

I'm sure we can all agree that it's "heaven", as several publications have previously stated over the years. J& McD appear to be the only ones with a different interp. on that one.

Let's give the donor/doughnut a rest. It's well boring now.

Everyone should have their own opinion.

Of course, but we don't have to agree with it, and can discuss/argue the point though, no?

1) It's only a donation if someone is giving willingly, ie "Please stab me I want to give you my blood," otherwise it's assault with a deadly weapon/extortion.

2) It's about Mick Jagger at Jimi's last birthday party which Devon held, and then left with Mick after publicly licking the blood from his wound when he cut his finger on a "jagged edge" ie broken glass (+ pun on his name, 1st coined by Keith Altham in an interview in the N.M.E. with Jimi when he talked about Jimi walking a "Jaggered edge.") Jimi, as I have said several times in this thread makes this very clear when he sings in the earlier version: "... she drinks the blood from a vain Mick Jagger" End of (my) case.

I was listening to, I think the Newport gig last night, and there was some interesting between song chatter (Something about not acting like animals, etc.)...then it occured to me, I would love for one of you obsessive types to compile his chatter at gigs on one or two cds. There is one of these out there of Roger Waters from Pink Floyd that is quite hilarious as he rants at the audience (common on the 1977 tour).

I came across this great post on the web on hecklers harassing comedians and their responses (http://splitsider.com/2011/03/eight-types-of-hecklers-and-the-comedians-who-shut-them-up).

Of course, Hendrix had his own fair share of hecklers, and had some great responses to them.

The two I know is one during a Germany '68 show in which a guy in the audience is yelling for Hendrix taking off his hat, and Hendrix replying: "I take off my hat if you take off pants."

The other is his reply "I ask for toilet paper and there you come rolling out" or something in that order.

Any more?

Thanks stplsd. It was bugging me and I was too lazy to go look for it in my newspaper clippings. I had as my source the old Rolling Stone magazine. It was a reprint in that beautiful style of his writing.It was the first time I saw his penmanship among others when they printed the poem.

Some quotes from the british magazines scans:

"The clothes aren't deliberate. I pick up what I feel like wearing when I dress. They represent my mood."

"When I started I liked anything from B.B. King to Muddy Waters and Bach to Eddie Cochran. But I didn't try to copy anybody."

"I always dug string instruments and pianos. Then I started digging guitars. It was the instrument that always seemed to be around."

"What's money except a piece of paper, just like a marriage licence?"

"I love to be on stage, not necessarily on stage but I love to play, that's why we play so loud 'cos it makes us feel good anyway."

"If the audience doesn't dig it, I just play for myself. You have to play for yourself if you want your own sound."

"Wild Man? No. I'm just natural all the time. What others think or say doesn't worry me, man."

"The pop business is a one-stop game. Most last a couple of years and maybe I'll go five. And then? I wanna go into films and write..."

"I'd like to be recognised for my music in the same way as someone like Chuck Berry" (1966)

"It's funny the way most people love the dead. You have to die before they think you are worth anything."

"My religion is a philosophy, my own, and it suits me."

"Religion is all the same—Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, it's just a lot of reasonable commercial quotes that sell because they're somewhere between very good and very bad, and people can easily hang on to that. It gives them something to believe in."
