That's probably what they were going for to convey that they were tired

My friend Ron & I went to Jimi's triumphant return to his home town in Seattle. The Colosseum was packed. Massive. Totally sold out. Years later my middle son called me into his room... played a Jimi song. Told me he wanted to play guitar like that. ("Too bad he's dead." I said. "When did he die? : "Long before you were born.") I said, if you DO, I will buy you a STACK of Marshalls. ...to this day, NO ONE has equaled Jimi's touch. Close, but not quite.

This performance in Stockholm was far from his best show, but I still like this a lot!
agostini15times (6 months ago)
I hate to say this, but this performance was a reason Noel had a clock ticking on his time with Jimi. He should have come in, but he doesn't and Jimi looks bummed.

Always imitated, never duplicated. He had the heart, the soul, and the deep emotion. Great talented guitarists came after who were incredible but lacked the human God given gift that came to Jimi naturally. Without naming names those of you who understand do understand.

Hendrix should have kept on playing w/ Mitch and Noel.
lisanders11 (10 months ago)
Mr Hendrix swirvels a mighty glance at mr Mitchell in the beginning. Mitch was eager to start, so he just started playing, a bit too early! But when they all come together it is the heaviest freightship our universe has seen and layed ears upon! Formidable! And the performance of M. Mitchell is unique and one of purest heaven like EXPERIENCES ever!

quase pirei de ver os solos de guitarra de jimi hendrix, ele ainda é o maior guitarrista do mundo , mesmo que esteja morto a quase 50 anos. ouvi muito jimi hendrix quando morei por um 1 ano no bairro da faisqueira em pouso alegre m.g em 1982. eu sou de são paulo e os mineiros da vizinhança me perguantavam quem tocava aquela guitarra fora do comum e eu dizia jimi hendrix. fantastico.

Jimi opened with Spanish Castle Magic the three times we saw him. He was great all three times. The last time he said, "we'll come back when we're more better rested up". He never returned and I'm still sad but glad he graced us with his presence.

Hendrix did so much so intense and great in an era that equipment quality was starting to try to crowl. This video shows a typical performance struggling with his stratocaster tune all music long

There are a lot of these recordings in swden Tivoli 1967 was recorded same as this. he liked the Tivoli gardens so I read

If Hendrix were alive you just know at some point he'd have had Vinnie Colauita on drums with him- would have been too much. Total brain fry.

that drummer is sick too!!!
Fender Blues (1 year ago)
It's a real shame that the drummer and bassist had to play so loud. Some say it was to pee Jimmy off. When they should have been proud to have the opportunity to play with such a brilliant guitar player that Jimmy was. Come back Jimmy we miss you.

Elvis Prestley (1 year ago)
to Jimi Hendrix you have inspired us and we miss you you are the universe Master of the guitar there was no one else that compared you in that era with the guitar of rock and roll era of the 60s and who has lived the sixties those days of heroin and dropping acid smoking pot those were the days of hippie and today we still live in that era no matter how or where we go it's in everybody's mind who has lived in this era but still feels it today rock and roll will live on you in infamy it will never die rock and roll is here to stay and what always stay here forever it will live in infamy TCB Elvis Presley That's it man rock and roll will never die

Michael Oconnor I know I'm lucky thank God for jimi hendrix

they were basically burnt out from constantly touring. The Experience was the highest paid act in 1969 but their music was played out. Jimi was looking for a change or other artists. if you listen to "cry of love tour" you'll see how much his music was evolving. way ahead of the competition.
Jeff Tate II (1 year ago)
The boys don't really seem to be into it do they? Jimi especially, he doesn't even finish singing the chorus before the solo. Redding played the same 3 or 4 notes over and over during the solo. No wonder Jimi loved cream. He was probably imagining what he could do with bass player like Jack. Stange performance to say the least.

This was September 5th, 1967 by the way

1969, he looked nothing like that in 67, the other 2 had kinky afro styles and Hendrix had virtually straightened hair in 67.

Around 7:35 Hendrix is just freestyling he looked like oh boy what to do next and just stopped and went into another key

After that first wild solo when you could tell he didn't seem pleased with wrapping it up, then halfway through the verse just plays the main riff again, that was trippy.

pretty sure Noel missed what Jimi was trying to lay down when he was scratching out the rhythm. Jimi looked pissed cause he probably thought that could have went somewhere like a nice build up to something

Midnight was recorded on a profoundly out of tune Strat; it may be his best though. Jimi knew where the notes...

wow, look at noels face smiling around 3:25 when he does the thing with the whammy bar. I think he was impressed even though they were fighting before this show.

Neil Young said, when asked who the top guitar players were, "There's Hendrix. And there's everybody else. There wasn't anyone even close to that guy." Man, i cannot even imagine what it would've been like to see this cat. He's a one time only artist. I mean, it must have been like an out of body experience to see shit like this. He absolutely had a god like aura about him, even beyond his playing. It's as if the guitar was a part of him or something. The world will never see anything like that again.

Agree completely. Hendrix was in his own category; I think that people forget what a great WRITER he was too...

Nikola85ZgCRO (2 years ago)
There is a moment here that is magical to me. For most of the song Jimi had been kinda uninterested and absent, the beginning especially. He went into the solo and tried to get into it, played brilliantly for mortal standards, but for Jimi it looked and sounded like he just wasn't feeling it. Then at 3:15 he takes two steps forward and the stars align. He's calm, collected, inspired and brutal. Pure magic.
richard mayers (4 months ago)
Agree. If you read the bios, Hendrix was getting tired of playing with the Experience by this time, and wanted to move on. He was great, but you can tell by his affect that he is kind of bored, or not totally engaged at times.
Odi et Amo The Essene (9 months ago)
Yeah i picked up on that flow also, have only done so lately just yt.never fails to musically force some inspiration in how Jimi's putting it down in different levels of energy.& let me check myself in the use of Mr. Hendrix name as if I knew him casually.
John Smith (1 year ago)
I agree with Nikola's assessment. It looks like at about 3:15 Jimmy totally begins improvising, which is what made him amazing. Most musicians would work their whole career to come up with "licks" like that, but he does it on the spot. And he did it all the time -- he never plays his solos the same way twice live.
Twotontessie (1 year ago)
Great post. Some of the most mesmerizing footage of any musician, anywhere, anytime.

I channel Jimi, I don't try, it just happens when the Gods are happy... sometimes on stage I tune in to his realm, probably Mars harmonic...any way I just travel. I remember waking up in a dream sitting in an auditorium, Jimi was on stage playing Hear my Train, teaching us how to play it... Stevie Ray was there along with around 3 hundred others. I didn't want to wake up.
Endless Bliss (17 days ago)
Far out man. I'm a bass player and I channel him too

CannibaLouiST DR.DRE SAID THAT HE WOULD LOVE TO SEE A HOLOGRAM OF JIMI HENDRIX. I MADE THE COMMENT IT'S BEST TO LEAVE THAT idea alone. I can remember meeting someone years ago who knew Jimi Hendrix this Brother said Jimi Hendrix is still alive and he said that he's afraid of that Brother. He never told me why? I never asked why either? I'm older now and I have grew in awareness & I know why?
