    So are we to presume that Eric Burdon simply invented the story about himself being at the apartment clean-up, in order to give himself some limelight, importance?
    He recounted that to Kathy I believe.

    He makes up all sorts of stuff about whatever, he just makes it up/changes it as he goes along, it's like he writing a script for a film.

    Just to go back to the original topic of the thread... I was just watching the Jimi documentary 'The Man They Made God' (2000) and I noticed Alvenia Bridges is actually interviewed on camera saying,

    "A nurse came out and said they thought they had saved him. Then they came back and they said that he was gone. And I didn't believe them because they just said a few minutes ago they thought they had him. So I insisted to see him. I saw his hand and his beautiful turquoise ring that I gave him, and i said 'ok he's gone' ".

    In the middle of her statement, it cuts to an interview with one of the doctors on duty who says "I'm absolutely certain he couldn't have been saved. Certainly when I saw him he wasn't saveable". Eric Burdon gives some details of his version of events too. Interesting and worth a watch for anyone who hasn't seen it.

    Just thought I'd throw that into the mix. I'll leave it up to others to decide who's telling the truth and who isn't!

    "Dead for hours". "He still had some life in him". What a mess all these "eye-witness" accounts are.
