I have just watched an item on Sky News which says that the guitar that Jimi played - and set on fire - at Finsbury Park Astoria in 1967 is to be auctioned. They had the guitar which is charred. They said the flames went over 30 feet into the air.

I was at that concert in the fifth or sixth row. Do you think I can remember anything about it? Not a thing - apart from seeing Jimi who was wearing an orange shirt which still had creases in it from being taken out of its box - I can remember absolutely nothing.

Well it was over 40 years ago ..................
