    Thursday 3 March 1967. No gig.
    Paris, [unknown] Hotel, Rue Caumartin.
    JHE flew in from London
    They booked in, but Jimi spent the night in Saint-Germain-Des-Prés .

    Saturday 4 March 1967. No gig.
    Paris, unknown hotel, Saint-Germain-Des-Prés (a fashionable 'arty' district).

    Jean Coghe: "Saturday morning, the situation became crucial... The chase by telephone began: London, the airports, the immigration office, the consulate and the most important hotels in Paris; it took more than three hours and the bill grew to over 300 Francs. Finally Caroline, the secretary of [DJ Emperor] Rosko, told us that Jimi was staying at a hotel in Staint-Germain-Des-Prés. Good, innocent people had taken him there."

    Paris, Saint-Ouen, Marché aux Puces (‘flea market’) de Clignancourt.
    JHE, Alain Dister, Jean Coghe, Chas Chandler, Tony Garland and Christian Landais (art director Barclay Records) visit.

    Alain Dister: "Because Jimi loves things that are kind of baroque, I take him to the fleamarket in Saint-Ouen. He seems to enjoy himself enormously, nosing through the old jewellery, curtain ropes, uniforms from the days of the Empire, and all kinds of things that he tries without even discussing the price with the merchants. He buys some rings with large sparkling stones. Then as he leaves, a Rocker passes us by and he whispers to me: 'That guy you are with, is that Little Richard?'"

    Frank Zappa: "Rock journalism is people who can't write interviewing people who can't talk for people who can't read."
