We're just jamming, that's all. You can click if you want to or leave anytime...but keep your mind combed out in this direction for astrological reports, interviews, sightings, Jimi Hendrix Foundation endowments, testimonials and happenings, and Hendrix Artifact of the week. And while you're here, ping your sonar tight to your vest to find the hidden link-gate to the secret page. And you will never hear surf music again...

The End Of Time Time Line


Twenty-five years ago, in the early morning hours on Friday of September 18, 1970 Jimi wrote his last poem:

The story of Jesus
so easy to explain
After they crucified him,
a woman, she claimed his name
The story of Jesus
the whole bible knows
went all across the desert
and in the middle, he found a rose

There should be no questions
there should be no lies
He was married ever happily after
For all the tears we cry
No use in arguing
all the use to the man that moans
When each man falls in battle,
his soul it has to roam
Angels of heaven
flying saucers to some,
made Easter Sunday
the name of the rising sun

The story is written
by so many people who dared,
to lay down the truth
to so very many who cared
to carry the cross
of Jesus and beyond
We will guild the light
this time with a woman in our arms
We as men
can't explain the reason why
the woman's always mentioned
at the moment that we die
All we know
is God is by our side,
and he says the word
so easy yet so hard

I wish not to be alone,
so I must respect my other heart
Oh, the story
of Jesus is the story
of you and me
No use in feeling lonely,
I am you searching to be free

The story
of life is quicker
than the wink of an eye
The story of love
is hello and goodbye
Until we meet again.

On this day, November 29, 1964 (or there abouts) - Jimi joins a leg of the Sam Cooke tour to play guitar. While in Memphis, Tennessee, Jimi meets Booker T & The MG's guitarist Steve Cropper in a soul food joint. Steve takes Jimi into the Stax Recording Studio to record an acetate demo, jam, and trade guitar secrets for several hours.
