    Re: "Until We Meet Again : The Last Weeks Of Jimi Hendrix"

    I can't recall right now, it may have been covered in other biographies, but Brown's 'Final Days' being a recent read, what saddened me to no end was the total abandonment of the Hendrix corpse. So many would claim 'close' association, yet, as the body was being prepped for transportation to the states, one would think someone would have had the decency to come forward with an outfit befitting the world's most famous Rock God. But no. The undertaker had to scounge for some Canadian lumberjack shirt and pair of blue jeans from who knows where. What a fucking dishonor.

    The way Jimi was treated when he died speaks a lot. Many people depended on Jimi. Once he died I guess he became his family's problem. Hmm, I wonder why Jeffery didn't rush forward? Jimi should have been clothed in emperor's oriental silk of the highest quality.

    Yeah, I like that. The Lone Nut scenario. So Monika then decided to drown Jimi in wine to cover her tracks? Hmm, funny how she avoided staining her dress with all that wine that was splashed around.

    The reasons why the Monika did it alone scenario is unlikely were all explained in the locked threads. Caesar is going to really stir this up because he has some radical claims.

    Yes he should have. Imagine Al's thoughts upon first viewing his son's body.

    Sure. Caesar says the ambulance men changed their story. Plus he says he's found new witnesses that change the timeline and back Monika. Other key witnesses too. I won't spoil the issue with details. I seriously doubt this, but let's see what he's found.

    For anything substantive to be brought to the table Glebbeek will have to provide empirical evidence. Witness accounts is merely a continuation of what's come before and all should be prepared for more of the same, endless and fruitless debates, IF, this is all that this new read will bring to the table. Ho-hum, where's my pop-corn & Coke? Ah! there it is ... ok - start the show.

    He was buried in Seattle Im very surprised Jimi's Dad couldnt find some decent clothes for him? Are you sure that wasnt for the transportation back to the States? Plus they say Al wanted an open caskett because he wanted to show Jimi was not drug addict.So an open casket in a lumber jacket? v. strange.

    The ambulance men gave their testimony when Dee Mitchel and Kathy Etchingham re-open the inquest which was a legal procedure. If they've contradicted their testimony now, it means theyve quite possibly perjured themselves during that inquest. But its difficult to say until we know what CG has found out.

    Thank you thats very kind, but I'll probably hang fire until Im flush and maybe Ceaser will sell it as a UV back issue at some later date. Then I can get it delivered to work or something. Id be interested to hear what he's found out...but as a fan probably more interested in the last few gigs, and the European Tour that they did.

    PG, this is not part of the UV issues so it not going to fall into "back issue" status ia.

    OK but its not going to persuade me to buy it when I cant really afford it for now. I cant understand the secrecy about Hendrix death either that is if he's really uncovered the truth.

    OK sorry. Its difficult to judge-we werent there- but Jimi's family at least gave him the dignity he deserved when he got to Seattle. I think Mozart was buried in an unmarked paupers grave, the same happened to some writers. Hendrix wanted to be buried in England perhaps its a good job he wasnt.

    No-one can do much about his premature passing, but he got the recognition he deserved and Hendrix was always loved and respected for his musical legacy and that is what is most important.

    KD: I wish this was made a little bit more apparent by the Editors ! I've just renewed my subscription to ensure I was going
    to get this and now I realize that this is not to be the case.

    From what I've heard there's a few more disgruntled subscribors with the same beef !

    CG - if you are reading these posts - any chance of a refund, with the cash sent to you going towards the
    Mystery Solving Edition only ? Let me know

    ^ Just e-mail Caesar at his e-mail address posted on his site. I'm sure he'll be glad to change the order.
