    JIMI HENDRIX


    In 1968, New York magazine sent photographer Roz Kelly to stake out the Drake Hotel, where Jimi Hendrix was thought to be staying. Rather than lurk around and wait for the rock star to appear, she walked right in and knocked on his door.
    Around this time, Hendrix was recording what would be his third and final album with the Jimi Hendrix Experience, and had famously burned his guitar at the end of his set at the Monterey Pop Festival the previous year.
    Hendrix groggily opened the door to let her in, then flopped back into bed. She shook him awake, and started taking pictures — from beside the bed, and right on top of it.
    After a few shots, she packed up her equipment and made ready to leave. Hendrix asked her to stay.
    “He had a couple other ideas — but I wanted to get home and see how my pictures turned out."
    Before landing the role of Carol “Pinky” Tuscadero in the TV series Happy Days, Roz Kelly was a staff photographer for New York magazine. Kelly photographed many musicians and artists, from Leonard Cohen and Neil Diamond to Andy Warhol and Diane Arbus.
