    Television’s Richard Lloyd Tell Stories From His New Memoir, Including The Time Jimi Hendrix Punched Him

    You tell a great story about getting punched in the face by Jimi Hendrix. How was his left hook?


    It was a flurry. Three punches. Left to the face, right to the stomach, left to the face. I sat down and my first thought was, ‘He packs a pretty good punch for a scrawny black guy!’ Then I was taken with measuring the force of his blows. We were all drunk, but I sat down, and I tried to absorb that energy. There’s a tradition in China where, if you hear someone is a great Kung Fu master, you go and get yourself beat up by them and steal some of their Chi. It was a little like that.


    You didn’t try to get back at him?


    I didn’t lay a hand on him. He had done all the punching. I stayed for another 45 minutes to an hour [after the club closed] until the guy with a broom or a mop said, ‘You gotta go. I gotta lock up.’ So I leave, and across the street in the parking lot is Jimi sitting in his Corvette. He rolled down the driver side window and cocked his finger to call me over. He took my hands in his and began crying and saying, ‘I’m sorry.’ I said, ‘Don’t worry about it. Jimi, go home and get some sleep. Everything’s fine.’ He cried on my hands, so I got a measure of his compassion as well. He was deeply, deeply sorry.

    Bootsy Collins on playing with James Brown, learning from Hendrix, and LSD

    Did Jimi Hendrix change your world?


    Totally. It wasn’t just him as an entertainer or a guitar player, it was his whole embodiment of being a space being that did what he wanted to do, played the way he wanted to play, dressed the way he wanted to dress. And all of that sent signals. He was like a milestone or blueprint, especially for young black musicians coming up. It was like, “If he can do it, it can be done,” and that’s all I needed to know.

    Quincy Jones Interview

    Wasn’t Hendrix supposed to play on Gula Matari?

    He was supposed to play on my album.

    [Apparently, Hendrix was supposed to lend guitar work to Jones’s 1970 album Gula Matari, which arrived at a time when the guitarist was expanding his musical vocabulary beyond rock and blues and into jazz and funk. Sadly, he didn’t get far, dying of asphyxiation in September of that same year.]


    But he chickened out. He was nervous to play with Toots Thielemans, Herbie Hancock, Hubert Laws, Roland Kirk — those are some scary motherfuckers. Toots was one of the greatest soloists that ever fucking lived. The cats on my records were the baddest cats in the world and Hendrix didn’t want to play with them.But you know who sings and plays just like Hendrix?


    Who?

    Paul Allen

    Stop it. The Microsoft guy?

    Yeah, man. I went on a trip on his yacht, and he had David Crosby, Joe Walsh, Sean Lennon — all those crazy motherfuckers. Then on the last two days, Stevie Wonder came on with his band and made Paul come up and play with him — he’s good, man.


    [The Microsoft co-founder and multibillionaire has a collection of yachts and guitars to rival the world’s finest, both of which he apparently makes good use of.]

    "Looks like the Texas airport interview footage that surfaced recently."

    The Love field Footage was discovered in an archive only months ago and is from June 20th, 1969.

    This was posted in 2013.

    Also, this is from 1968, since his hair has been streaked. (like in Miami).

    Thanks, though!

    I think this was filmed on the Zurich Airport on June 1 , 1968 (flight to London for a stop over, and straight to NYC)
