    No, it and the entire Conspiracy Forum is getting less and less traffic due to the closing of topics, banning of members and, finally, the departure/absence of the pro-conspiracy camp.

    oh, ... and I will not buy this book. I will read it first chance I get.

    Two primary conflicts with Brown's "Last Days" in my opinion. There is much more of interest in the book but these are the two big body blows to Last Days and previous accounts. Hard to imagine any halfway reasonable person would digest Ceasar's book and walk away with the idea that Brown's book is more accurate.

    - Ceasar presents lethally damning evidence against Bannister that destroys his credibility. Huge because Bannister was a primary source in Last Days and, more importantly, the only source of the red wine, mess in the bed story..

    - The source of the quotes from the paramedic(s) in Final Days is revealed to be somewhat dubious. The paramedic claims the quotes don't accurately represent the interview he gave.

    My only dissapointment was the lack of new details from the Pete Kameron party. That and the Berlin show is sort of dismissed.

    KD: To be honest, they're both flawed ! How anyone (CB, SD MF or anyone else) could say that theirs was the "final word" on a mystery such
    as Jimi's death is a stretch at best. Big egos are obviously involved here, and anyone who thinks that they are the "definitive, world's expert" on Jimi or his death is simply ludicrous. What made me laugh at CB's recent account is his suggestion that Tony "never set foot in the Samarkand Hotel"

    Bollocks ! I was there with him myself in Sept 1997 shortly after the release of Tony's great book. The current owners actually let us in to the room where Jimi died. Very spooky to say the least. We showed our respects, said a quick prayer and got the hell out of there. Tony was a great guy and a very good friend. I miss him very muich.

    RIP Jimi - I'm afraid the final details of your untimely death will remain always a mystery. I'm sure there are those who will continue to argue this sad point..................... Go for it !

    To relay anything else in UWMA would of course been to admit that Electric Gypsy got the ending wrong ! That certainly
    wasn't going to happen now was it ?

    No one is ever going to get to the bottom of this now.

    Though it seems that Jimi died on arrival at the hospital.

    The only major change in her story was a large time difference during one radio interview many years later when she speculated the Mafia had killed him. Was she fed up with being questioned (to which she gave almost identical stories, occasionally leaving out the trip for cigs) and thought she'd go along with the murder scenario, and/or was she taking the piss?
    Her story of JH's death had nothing to do with her suicide anyway, it was losing a libel action by Kathy Etchingham for calling her a liar (Monika's not the only one, it seems).

    He took an overdose of sleepers, not a big one though, ie not big enough to deliberately commit suicide, which caused him to choke to death - the only mystery is why he took so many, but it's not a big mystery, it's an all too common mistake, same with booze etc.

    Here is an article from '96 on Dannemann that I hadn't seen

    http://www.independent.co.uk/life-st...f-1345098.html

    also, in that bastion of truth.... Wikipedia, it states under Dannemann's entry that Al Hendrix concurred that the two were to be married. Where did THAT come from?

    I feel he gives no slant one way or another-- he presents the facts in logical sequential and thorough manner.

    This book is worth every penny he is asking.
    I'll go along with most of that, but I detect an obvious slant with his declaring the amount of barbiturate to be definitely fatal without the vomit. I am siding with the medical report into Vesparax that I provided, other evidence of fatal doses and with the coroner and pathologist who all declare this was a borderline death (on the side of probable survival) and if he had not vomited/been treated properly and in time he could quite possibly have survived (this does not mean that anyone is to blame) - until better evidence is given on the toxicity of the dose.

    From a letter he wrote.

    Somebody help me out with the by-line under his name. French to English via Google Translate comes up with:

    "Against investigating a suspicious death"

    What would be a better translation?

    "Counter inquiry on a suspicious death" would be better
