Jimi played one more two show gig at the Fillmore East, really a “live” recording session for the Chalpin/Capitol BOG’s LP he spent about a week mixing/editing it, and about a week recording the Stepping Stone single. Then at the end of the month he played at a mammoth fund raising benefit for the hugely popular ‘Moratorium Committee’ to stop the war in <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" /><st1:country-region><st1:place>Vietnam</st1:place></st1:country-region>. Jimi appeared to be in a foul mood for some unknown reason, made a crude remark to a woman in the audience, then blasted through rough approximations of two numbers and then left the stage with a cryptic announcement: “That’s what happens when Earth fucks with Space, never forget that.”<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
<o:p></o:p>
The Jimi Hendrix Experience (with Billy Cox on bass) rides again on their 4th <st1:country-region><st1:place>US</st1:place></st1:country-region> (“Cry of love”) tour. This Experience tour had been planned and talked about in interviews before, during and after the BOGs as an “Experience” tour including Mitch as the drummer, Noel wasn’t mentioned as being involved until the 1970 Rolling Stone interview, which unfortunately appears to have been a cynical publicity exercise.<o:p></o:p>
Again it wasn’t really a tour, just a series of one or two off gigs, flying in and out of <st1:State><st1:place>New York</st1:place></st1:State> from time to time. (25th April – 1 August. 26 cities, 29 shows over 3 months) <o:p></o:p>
The “tour” carried over into <st1:place>Europe</st1:place> for a few dates. <o:p></o:p>
John McDermott: “Con­certs West, under the Jeffery-Weiss umbrella, had become so skillful that, with thorough precision, the Experience could remain in <st1:State><st1:place>New York</st1:place></st1:State> until the day of the show, fly in and, after one or two local bands had warmed up the crowd, play their set.” Also from McD: Jimi was driven by limo from NYC to the <st1:City><st1:place>Boston</st1:place></st1:City>, <st1:City><st1:place>Philadelphia</st1:place></st1:City> & <st1:City><st1:place>Baltimore</st1:place></st1:City> gigs. <o:p></o:p>
Worked to death by Mike – I don’t think so!<o:p></o:p>
P.S.<o:p></o:p>
This post is only concerned with the JHE musicians not their Road Crew (ie Gerry Stickells, Eric Barrett, John Downing and the “low roadie on the totem pole," Gene McFadden)<o:p></o:p>

Any earnings from Track/Polydor’s Jimi Hendrix recordings in the <st1:country-region><st1:place>UK</st1:place></st1:country-region> are being held in escrow pending a settlement of the Chalpin case & are therefore unavailable to all parties.<o:p></o:p>

29 no gig NYC Billy: “Jimi truly loved Buddy, but he was the star. He was the boss. This was an unspoken issue, but all you have to do is listen to any Band Of Gypsys performance and you will hear it. We musicians have to be careful not to cross these boundary lines. You have to pay homage to Caesar. Render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's. Sometimes that did not happen. That disturbed Jimi, and I think Buddy finally became aware of this by the end."<o:p></o:p>

BC: "After the business at <st1:place><st1:PlaceName>Madison</st1:PlaceName><st1:PlaceName>Square</st1:PlaceName><st1:PlaceType>Garden</st1:PlaceType></st1:place>, I was real suspect, I agreed to come back in Febru­ary, but that fell apart as well. I didn't hear from Jimi for about a month. Then I got a phone call from him saying, 'C'mon, Bill. Let's get it on!' I said, 'Hey man, you ain't getting nothing on. I'm here in <st1:City><st1:place>Nashville</st1:place></st1:City> and I'm happy. I don't want to go through all that shit I went through again.' He promised and promised that I would have no hassles, so, like a fool, I came back for the third time."<o:p></o:p>

24 no gig NYC NR: "I started getting some demos together after Jimi and Mitch began rehearsing with Billy Cox. ‘My Friend' was a song I had written. It was a tune in the key of <st1:place>E. Jimi</st1:place> also had a song by that name, but I think he stole the title from me [Noel probably only heard Jimi's song for the 1st time on the Cry Of Love, not realising it had been recorded in 1968]. Jimi came over to the studio and offered play guitar. I think he was trying to make up with me because he had never spoken to me or even called to say that he was going to be playing with another guy. Jimi played guitar on 'My Friend.' I got as far as putting a rough vocal on it." [It was never completed and it remains unreleased.]<o:p></o:p>

3 KobenhavnDanish press get the story that Jimi & Kirsten are engaged to be married. [Jimi looks haggard and appears to be very “up” on something (coke or wiz?), and plays a fiery but ragged set to a very enthusiastic audience. Unfortunately he seems to have overdone it, straining his voice quite badly] <o:p></o:p>
4 West Berlin[Alan ‘Blind Owl’ Wilson founder of Canned Heat was found dead from an overdose of barbiturates and alcohol the very day the band left for this concert.

In a pre gig interview Jimi sounds like he’s overdone the alcohol/downers again, it’s also painfully apparent that his voice is damaged from the previous night, missing out much of the vocals and hardly speaking between songs]<o:p></o:p>

15 no gig London according to the unreliable testimony of E. Burdon, Jimi turned up off-his-face at Ronnie Scott's wanting to jam but was refused, Burdon asked him to come back and jam the next day - if he's together. J. "Tappy" Wright later repeats this tale, claiming it was he who refused Jimi, (as does someone else, can’t remember who offhand) etc.

18 Jimi dies in the early hours (ie not long after he got back from the party) from an “overdose” of barbs & alcohol, approx 24 hours after he left Ronnie’s. Doctor’s and ambulance men’s opinion is that he had been dead for hours before they were called.

Well, maybe out-of-it sounds stronger than I meant it to (subjective), but I think it would be difficult to argue that he sounds entirely sober?;-)
