    Celebrating the life and legacy of Mr. James Marshall Hendrix

    Anybody up for a road trip to Seattle Washington to celebrate our hero, Jimi Hendrix's life and legacy?

    Inspired by Pat's idea. How bout we put together a CTT celebration. All interested members of CTT could get together, meet in Seattle in say a year or two from now (give people around the globe a chance to book a flight in advance to to get the best deal possible, as well as hotel accomadations).

    We could start the day, having a meet and greet at the Jimi Hendrix Park http://jimihendrixpark.org/(to be dedicated in the near future) share our stories, have a barbeque with Jimi tunes blasting. We could rent a bus or just take the local bus around town: checking out the sites: Paul Allen's Music Project http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Experie...d_Hall_of_Fame, check out EH headquarters (not sure if Google Earth is showing the exact location) (maybe Janie would even meet with us- good PR for her- nice media story), we could check out Jimi's childhood home (or at least where it once stood) (I believe the partially deconstructed home resides in a nearby trailor park)http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/htm...endrix31m.html), check out his High School (Garfield) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Garfiel...le,_Washington), visit the

    music shoppe where Hendrix bought his first guitar (new owners, Mural has been removed) http://wikimapia.org/1082133/Where-J...s-first-guitar.


    travel by and maybe see a concert at Sticks Stadium (not sue of EH has any scheduled concerts planned for the future at this venue http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sick's_Stadium , I bet Leon http://www.leonhendrix.com/askleon.html would speak with us and maybe be our tour guide. We could even see the gravesite (for me -this would be an incredible spirital connection http://www.jimihendrixmemorial.com/updates.html .

    your comments and ideas are most welcome and encourged. Depending on the interest and itinerary, we might consider extending the fun 2-3 days. I'm sure there are more sites to see in Seattle- if you know of them- please share.

    Marcos, thank you for setting up the poll

    ^you're welcome Scott.

    Although I suggest November 27, 2012 as a target date, I have no idea what the weather would be like. Farmer's Almanac may come in handy here. Might also be wise to have a Seattlean, Seattleite, oh, ... uh ... ppfffttt , someone local to act as laison and get all in this.

    I suggest making this poll a sticky. Otherwise, other and new posts will push it out of view.

    what about a Pre Seattle Tour in London, this year would be 40 years for Jimi's passing. so I was thinking on maybe a tour of the last 72 hours in Jimi's life in London, walking through the sites and places he was till the hour he died, and an option to talk live about the "political kidnap murder thread"

    thoughts?

    Too soon for me, but if I were in the UK at the time, I say 'for sure!'

    Re: Celebrating the life and legacy of Mr. James Marshall Hendrix

    we could check out Jimi's childhood home (or at least where it once stood) (I believe the partially deconstructed home resides in a nearby trailor park)
    It wasn't there yesterday.

    A few of us are holding out hope that it wasn't completely destroyed but was secretly purchased & hidden away for "restoration" and future placement in Jimi Hendrix Park over on Massachusetts Ave.

    Also be aware that Garfield High was extensively remodeled a couple summers ago or so. And plan ahead re EMP/SF Museum, contact them and let them know you plan on coming as a group and ask about any special looks that might be open to you.

    I would advise keeping all the waterboarding stuff kinda quiet however...esp. whenst trying to get some time alone with John, Eddie, and Janie at EH central.

    If you're gonna 'do' it in Seattle, appoint a local to make a 'tour' - chose locations you want to visit, check out the most convenient/cheap transport/accomodation.
    There are CTT members that live around Seattle, i'm sure!

    Once you have a idea of what you want to see, make a route.

    Consider trying to get in touch with some members of Jimi's family for a really nice tour(guide).

    Dont even think about making it a 1-day event.

    Additionally, maybe some 'tours' of London/surrounds can be arranged (with the Jimpress guys?!)

    And in places/countries that Jimi didnt even visit, you can still have meetings of collectors, its always fun and interesting.

    I'd love to do this. I've done my own Hendrix "tours" of New York and London but I'm so broke right now I can't even pay attention

    Hope you guys get it together, would be alot of fun, as long as the political stuff gets left behind.
