Hello, everybody,

I'd like to know where I could find the transcription for this interview. If I could get the subtitles in Spanish that would be great, but the whole interview in English would be okay too.

Thanks in advance.

Peace, love & happiness!

Here's the subtitle in Spanish:

It's the least I can do back on this great site ;)

Thank you so much for your quick answer.

I would really apreciate if I could get the transcription in English too. I'm translating the original interview because there are some parts of it not translated into Spanish.

However, there are little pieces of it that I don't understand because they speak too fast or because they use very informal language.

Hope I'm not asking too much! Eindhoven? I have a rain jacket myself with the PSV logo on it. Cool jacket and cool team too!.

Thanks, again!

04-19-09, 04:52 PM
Yeah, PSV is cool ;) They've beaten Ajax with 6-2 :D

Alright, here is the subtitle in English:

I hope I've helped you enough with it!

Recording for the Dick Cavett TV program, backed by the Bob Rosengarden Orchestra
Songs: 1. Getting My Heart Back Together Again [aka Hear My Train Coming]
Interview by Dick Cavett
MC : The Dick Cavett show, with Robert Downey, Jimi Hendrix, Garson Kanin,
Gwen Verdon and Bob Rosengarten and the Orchestra…
DC : …among my guests tonight are Jimi Hendrix
JR : Oh!
Aud : [Applause]…
JR : Great move
DC : I don’t think he has ever been on t-television, like this, before, I don’t know, I-I-I’ll tell
you my entire guests are: underground film maker Robert Downey, Jimi Hendrix,
Garson Kanin – man of all parts in the theatre, and, eh, the wonderful Gwen Verdon will be hell, no-not the bad Gwen Verdon, the wonderful one … [commercial break] …tch, my-my next guest is one of the superstars of the pop music world, his name is Jimi Hendrix, and-uh, he is not here with his-uh group, but he is here himself, which is a thrill for us, and rather than try to describe the Jimi Hendrix experience, if you have never had it, here is a piece of film from DA Pennebaker’s film Monterey Pop, can we-uh go right into that? [show film of Jimi smashing his guitar]…
Aud : [Applause]
DC : That isn’t all he does, but he…
Aud : [Laughter]
DC : …he is here tonight, as I say, without his-uh Experience. So-uh, here is a naïve and
innocent Jimi Hendrix, right here [house band plays ‘Purple Haze’ as an intro]
Jimi : Yeah, hmm, tch, ahmm, tch
DC : Pleased to meet you, what’s your… I-uh. That is not of course-uh, the only thing you
do on stage heard, to those who have never seen you before, if there are any, and of
course there have to be a few…
Jimi : Mm
DC : …but, em, what would you say is the meaning of-of destruction on stage, when you
do it like that?
Jimi : Hmm, tch, let’s see
DC : You can reject this question
Jimi : I was such in a trance then when I did it, I can’t remember, but let’s see if I can
remember that song
DC : Yeah
Jimi : That was a thing, like-uh, when you bring your girlfriend there, an’ watch us play and
so forth, weel, you can get it out of your system then, by watchin’ us do it. Makin’ it into theatrics, instead of puttin’ it into the streets
DC : Mhmm
Jimi : So that when you get home with, you know, your family or your girlfriend, so you
have all this tension out of the way, you know, s-s-s-it’s nothin’ but a release I guess, y’know
DC : Possibly a safety valve, to some kind of violence?
Jimi : Oh, yeah, you can call it that, cool, heh-heh
DC : Yeah. Do you hate being asked what things mean? I, I realise that-uh, you almost
have to apologise to ask someone who’s considered an artist, as you are, um, what thay mean by something, because you’re asking them to re-interpret something they’ve already done
Jimi : You mean, like…
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…
DC : It’s what?
Jimi : …that’s the way I look at it anyway…
DC : Do…
Jimi : …it’s all a big fat ego scene, for instance, you know
DC : Ego scene?
Jimi : Well, yeah, the so’-art of words which means nothing, you know
DC : Mhmm
Jimi : 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 : Yeah… Bet you didn’t wear this in the paratroops
Jimi : No, not necessarily heh-heh
DC : You were a para’-what is it…
Jimi : Right… heh-heh
DC : …a paratrooper or a parachutist…
Jimi : It doesn’t make a difference
DC : …or shoutist
Jimi : 101st Airbourne, <st1:place><st1:City>Fort Campbell</st1:City>, <st1:State>Kentucky</st1:State></st1:place>, you know
DC : Yeah
Jimi : Yeah, tch
DC : We almost wore the same things tonight, it would have been embarrassing
Aud : [Some laughter]
DC : Eh… You, I…
Aud : [Louder laughter]
DC : I, I turned him on, it’s really amazing
Jimi : Mmm-tch
Aud : [Laughter]
DC : Now… I heard the-uh…
Aud : [Applause]
DC : …I heard you use, um…
Jimi : You turn on, ha-ha
DC : …I-I wanna clear something with you. I heard the expression, eh, an “electric church”
as, a…
DC : …as an ambition you had. Was this speaking metaphorically or poetically or do
you really wanna... <o:p></o:p>
Jimi : [Sighs] Oh, let’s see, I don’t know. It’s just a…
DC : Go…
Jimi : … it’s just a belief that I have, y’know, it’s, t-tch, an’ it’s-uh, we do use electric
guitars. Everything, y’know, is electrified nowadays, y’know
DC : Mhmm
Jimi : 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
DC : Uh-huh
Jimi : …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 su’-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
Aud : [Laughter]
DC : How…
Jimi : I’m Superchicken huh-huh
DC : But…
Jimi : And don’t you forget it
Aud : [Laughter]
DC : And don’t, an’ don’t I forget it?
Jimi : No, man
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. Eh, someone said it’s hard to-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, or cheque…
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 : I don’t know, but it sounds good
Jimi : No, man
DC : Eh
Jimi : Heh-heh
DC : …are you, do you consider yourself a disciplined guy, do you get up every day and
Jimi : Oh, I try to get up every day, once
Aud : [Laughter & applause]
DC : Oh, yes that, that in itself is a discipline
Jimi : Yeah
DC : Heh
Jimi : I’m still tryin’ today too
Aud : [Laughter]
DC : Do you write every day though?
Jimi : Huh? Oh, yes, yeah, yes
DC : Do you wanna leave a call?
Aud : [Laughter]
Jimi : What does that mean? [In a silly voice:] “What are you tryin’ to say?”
That’s hip talk, I wou’…
Jimi : No
DC : …I really wouldn’t have time to explain it

Aud : [Laughter]
Jimi : You… mean… hmm, hip
DC : You see
Jimi : Oh, yeah, right, right, okay
DC : Listen Hendrix
Aud : [Laughter]
Jimi : Huh-huh
DC : I, I’m told that you’re gonna perform for us, which I still don’t believe, because-uh, I
don’t know how this is possible, but if you would, there’d be more than one grateful person [in silly voice:] “on the premises.” Oh, by the way, goodnight to my guests in case I forget later, in case you wo’-don’t want to come to a stop
Jimi : Hmm
Aud : [Laughter & applause]
Jimi : Yeah, what the hell, man
DC : Have you understood anything I’ve said?
Jimi : [In silly voice:] “I think so, I’m not sure”
DC : I think so, I think you…
Jimi : I’ve been watching you, so I think I know… I talk through music anyway, maybe if I
get my guitar together, I’ll probably get something together<o:p></o:p>
DC : Great, okay
Jimi : Okay
DC : Your stage is ours
Aud : [Applause]
I wait around the train station <o:p></o:p>
Waitin’ for my train<o:p></o:p>
To take me <o:p></o:p>
Take me away <o:p></o:p>

Way down in my soul<o:p></o:p>
Tears burnin’ me in my heart<o:p></o:p>
Way down in my soul<o:p></o:p>
Too bad you don't love me no more, girl<o:p></o:p>
Too bad you, you made me leave, and go<o:p></o:p>

Hear my train a comi-in’<o:p></o:p>
Yeah <o:p></o:p>
Aud : [Applause]
[Band play Purple Haze as Jimi leaves the stage]<o:p></o:p>
DC : Terrific, we only have one minute left, maybe I could sing something
Aud : [Laughter & applause]
DC : I meant the matchmaker, not the skin of our teeth earlier. Ah, we will go away for it,
just a moment I believe, and then we’ll be back. Don’t go away mad Hendrix, we’ll be
back in a moment
Aud : [Some girls shouting:] Oh, something else! [applause]
[Band play Purple Haze as it cuts to a commercial break]…<o:p></o:p>
DC : …Should I forget, tomorrow we have John Biner, Roger Karis, Marlow Thomas, and
Sarah Vaughn. Thank you Robert Downey, Jimi Hendrix, Garson Kanin, Gwen Verdon for being here tonight. Jimi thank you for making your network debut here tonight
Jimi : Thank you very much

show, and-uh James-uh Hendrix, was not on
Aud : [Slight applause] Got lost!<o:p></o:p>
DC : uh-Wa’-was not on that program, because he, em, after playing a terrifically long set
that night before, and all end of the morning, at Woodstock, he collapsed in his room, and was not able to be there. Ah, he said odd things happen to him, once fifty girls jumped into the pool between the stage and the-eh, audience when he was appearing, and we assume that will not happen tonight, but anyway, he has recovered enough to join us tonight, and willl you welcome please the inimitable Hendrix Experience, Jimi Hendrix Experience, Fucked up…

1. IZABELLA ><o:p></o:p>
Girl, I’m holdin’ you in my dreams every night
Every night
Hey, but this war against hatred
You know I got to fight this war before night
And I’m talkin’ to you under fire
So I hope you’re recievin’ me right
Lord, I’m fightin’ this war for the children and you
Hey-ey, sweet darli-in’
I said I’m fightin’ this war against hatred for you
And if you stay with me, baby
Then I know I’ll be fightin’ tru-ue
Hey, here comes the rays of the risin’ su-un
Lord, I’m fightin’ this war for the children and you
Hey, I said this war against hatred
Oh, I’ve got a feelin’ it’s just begun
So keep that love comin’ in strong
Maybe one day I’ll be holdin’ you
Instead of this machine gun
Hey, stick by me, baby
Hey, stick by me, baby
Stole a gun
2. < MACHINE GUN[I]* <o:p></o:p>
Machine gu-h-un
Tearin’ my body all apart

Tearin’ my body all apart
Evil men make people kill me
Even though we’re only families apart
Shootin’ away all my brothers and sisters
And they don’t even know a thing about it
Blowin’ away all my brothers and sisters
And they don’t know a thing about that, hey baby
So I pick up my axe and fight like a farmer
And Lord, my own brother shoot me down
*According to Jimi this addresses at least two subjects, one is war and the other is personal struggle <o:p></o:p>
“People fighting wars within’ themselves.”<o:p></o:p>
Aud : [Applause] <o:p></o:p>
[House band plays Purple Haze as an intro]
DC : So it’s really you at last. How are you
Jimi : Tuh-heh, I’m pretty tired, just been in recording so much, you know
DC : You’re tired now?
Jimi : Yeah, haven’t had a sleep in about, all night. Now we been workin’ on our last LP
DC : How much sleep do you need to be alert?
Jimi : Alert? Oh, I guess about, eight heh-heh

DC : Eight hours?
Jimi : Yeah, I had about eight minutes, so, you know, an’ then it answers itself
DC : Minutes?
Jimi : Yeah [then makes several tongue popping noises ]<o:p></o:p>
DC : I’ve slept longer than that in my monologue
Jimi : Oh yeah
DC : Want to cut the-uh, racket off on the sound here… uh-nice gentlemen
Jimi : [Makes throat cut sign] Keugh!<o:p></o:p>
Aud : [Laughter] <o:p></o:p>
DC : What is that m’-sound that, that we hear ir’-irritating us so dreadfully?
Aud : [Laughter] <o:p></o:p>
Jimi : Well, it sounds, it sounds something like the-uh New York street, oh I don’ know. It’s
like-uh, today the air is all static, so the amplifiers are static. Music is loud, the air is loud, an’, you know. We’re tryin’ to settle things down a little bit, but as I take it, like a rest<o:p></o:p>
Aud : [Some laughter] <o:p></o:p>
DC : I asked a practical question and got a philosophical answer, isn’t that terrific
Aud : [Laughter] <o:p></o:p>
Jimi : Tch, philosoph, is that philosophical?
DC : I thought it was…
Jimi : I thought that was George
DC : …you said there was static…
Jimi : Oh, yeah
DC : …in the air and all
Jimi : Yeah, well, I was just tryin’ to get a point across before we all, you know, take our
rest [snores] Oh I’m sorry, he’s still out here.
DC : We’re gonna both sack out here. Mr Young will you eh…
Aud : [Laughter] <o:p></o:p>
MY : Carry on?
DC : …maintain the audience for us?
MY : Right
DC : Ahm, let me a-ask you something, ahm, what really happened to you that night at
Woodstock, did you stay on so long you just… Really would have summoned him…
Jimi : No, no, we was playing in the morning
DC : Yeah
Jimi : And-uh it was announced that it was cancelled, the show at the, Dick Cavett’s was
cancelled, so, and then later on it was announced that it was on
DC : Oh, really
Jimi : An’-uh, didn’t know what was happenning. I was so exhausted, you know
DC : Yeah
Jimi : It was like a… What do you call those things? Nervous breakdown, or whatever, you
DC : Physical breakdown?
Jimi : Yeah
DC : You don’t suppose it was a real-you didn’t have-have you ever had a nervous
Jimi : Yeah…
DC : Re’…
Jimi : …about three of ‘em since I’ve been in this group, since I’ve been in this business,
you know, tch
DC : Really?
Jimi : Hmm
DC : Gee, I didn’t mean to pry, but-eh, since you…
Jimi : No, really
DC : …brought it up I…
Aud : [Laughter] <o:p></o:p>
DC : …thought I would mention it<o:p></o:p>
Jimi : Before I ask you, that’s great
DC : Yeah… Ahm, they said that everyone was amazed at the absence of violence. It’s
become a cliché now, about that big festival, and about the others. Were-were you surprised at it, did you think that it should go on anyway?
Jimi : I was glad, I was glad
DC : Yeah
Jimi : That’s what it’s all about, you know
Aud : [Girls laughing] <o:p></o:p>
DC : Yeah
Jimi : [Aside, about the girls:] “There’s trouble” Try to keep violence down, you know, keep
them off the streets, an’, like, a festival 500,000 people was a very beautiful turnout,
you know<o:p></o:p>
Jimi : I hope we have more of them, you know, be nice<o:p></o:p>
DC : Yeah… What was the controversy about the national anthem, and the way you play
it now
Jimi : All I did was play it. I’m American, so I played it. I used to have to sing it in school,
they made me sing it in school, so…
Aud : [Girls laughing] <o:p></o:p>
Jimi : …as a flashback, you know, an’ I’m not too bothered
DC : This man was in the 101st Airboune, so when you write your nasty letters in, talk…
Jimi : Nasty letters? Wow…
DC : Great…
Jimi : …you really try hard, don’t you
DC : Well, people. When you mention the national anthem, and, eh, talk about playing it in
any unorthodox way, you immediately get a guaranteed percentage of hate mail from people…
Jimi : Well, listen…
DC : …who say…
Jimi : …that’s not unorthodox…
DC : …how dare anyone…
Jimi : …that’s not unorthodox
DC : It isn’t unorthodox?
Jimi : No, no. I thought it was beautiful, but then, there you go, an’
DC : Oh, but there…
Aud : [Big applause] <o:p></o:p>
DC : [In a slightly deranged voice:] “Don’t you find that there’s a certain mad beauty in
Aud : [Jimi growls, raises his arms and attacks DC] “Shlerp yaarrrgh"!<o:p></o:p>
DC : [DC cowers in terror] Aaaah!
Aud : [Laughter] <o:p></o:p>
Jimi : Yeah, right<o:p></o:p>
DC : I knew you’d do that, someday…
Jimi : Yeah, you had a tie on, man<o:p></o:p>
DC : …you’d wig-out on my show<o:p></o:p>
Jimi : Right, right, don’t forget it
DC : Do they ever, eh, send that shirt back with too much starch in the collar<o:p></o:p>
Aud : [Laughter] <o:p></o:p>
Jimi : Anyway… I don’t know
DC : They?
Jimi : I don’t know my, I don’t know nothing. I know nothing about it, you would know
DC : That’s the best shirt I-I’ve seen in a long time
Aud : [Slight laughter] <o:p></o:p>
DC : Ahm, why-why do the supergroups keep breaking up. There are always rumours that
your group is breaking up, and Big Brother broke up and…

Jimi : Well, probably ‘cause, like, they want to get into individual things on their own, or
DC : Hmm
Jimi : …they might want to get into other things besides music, you know, and-uh…
DC : You mean guys i-in your group would be, would want out of the busi’-out of the
music business, and into…
Jimi : Well, not necessarily, maybe they might want to get into their own music, ‘cause,
like, what I was tryin’ to do…
DC : Yes
Jimi : …like, was, like, do a today’s type of blues, like Manic Depression, and so forth
DC : Mhmm
Jimi : An’, like Noel Redding he’s, like, he’s into a more harmonic thing, where, you know,
when you sing and so forth, and, like, he went to England to get his own group together, and got his…
DC : Who’s this?
Jimi : Noel Redding the bass player
DC : Oh, Noel Redding
Jimi : Right
DC : Yeah
Jimi : We had Billy Cox playing bass this time
DC : Mhmm
Jimi : Tch, and-uh, I think it’s the last job we’ll do, until we, you know, I take a rest
DC : Really
Jimi : Looks like, we’ve been working very hard for three years, you know
DC : Can you tell-uh, some nights you’re just not making it at all, do you ever have… the Jimi : Oh, yeah, I’ve been to that one
DC : …urge to just walk off an’ apologise
Jimi : That’s why I hate compliments, you know. Compliments…
DC : Yes
Jimi : …are so embarrassing sometimes, ‘cause you know really the truth of what’s
happening, tch 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
Aud : [Girls giggle]
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?”
Aud : [Girls laugh]
DC : You’re considered one of the best guitar players in The World, um…
Jimi : Oh, no, huh
Aud : [Laughter & applause]
DC : Certainly-uh… Well, one of the best in this studio, anyway
Aud : [Laughter]
Jimi : How about some…
DC : And some…
Jimi : …one of the best sittin’ in this chair, how about that
Aud : [Laughter]
DC : Yeah. Do, do you have to practise every day, the way a violinist does. I mean if
you’re not working, say you’re off in England, and you’re just taking off a couple of months…
Jimi : Well, like, I like to, um…
DC : …do you have to keep in shape every day
Jimi : Yeah, well, I like to, like, play to myself, and, like, an old girl. In a room or before we
go on stage, or something like this, or whenever I feel like, know, whenever I feel down, or depressed or whatever, you know…
DC : Mhmm

Jimi : …I just go on and play, an’ I can’t practice so it’s-it’s always constantly - what do you
call that? – like a jam, you know. It’s hard for me to remember any notes, ‘cause I’m constantly trying to create other things, that’s why I make a lot of mistakes now
DC : Do you read music?
Jimi : No, not at all
DC : No…Uh, do you ever run into the-any of the guys from the old 101st?
Jimi : Yeah, I run into some of my friends
DC : Do you
Jimi : Yeah
DC : Do they, do they wonder-think your life is strange compared to what
they’re in?
Jimi : Tch, oh what, you know, I wouldn’t, I wouldn’t matter really, because, you know,
there’s s-so many different things goin’ on now, you know, I can’t…
DC : Mhmm
Jimi : …you can’t take time out and say, “Oh, I wonder what they think about me there,
oh,” you know, and all this kind of stuff, you know. I can’t go through all that, I’ve been goin’ through it for three years. I think, I think they’re ah, pretty, pretty well off, if they ever get out of that stuff, you know, to see me again, so in order for me to see them
DC : Yeah
Jimi : I feel very lucky about that… Snappy

DC : …Oh, here we are. Ah, Jimi Hendrix ah, left, he really felt lousy. He told me during
the commercial, an’ I want to thank him for coming here tonight. He felt somewhat obligated, because he’d missed the other show, an’-eh, I think he’s a wonderful performer, and I’m very glad that he came, and I hope he feels better
Aud : [Applause]<o:p></o:p>
