JIMI HENDRIX 11/27/42 – 9/18/70

“Once I let my Friend, Ann Tansey, Mercury records A+R director, stay in my New york apartment while I was on the west coast. I didn’t know she had invited her sometime boyfriend, Jimi Hendrix, to stay with her. When I arrived home, I found a nasty note from my neighbor, about my loud guitar playing. The note also said something about people going in and out of my apartment, by way of the fire escape.To this day I don’t know what really happened, but I do admit I was flattered, that he thought it was me playing the guitar!”

From my forthcoming book, “I Did It For A Song”

“In 1968, I let my Friend, Ann Tansey, Mercury records A+R director, stay in my New York apartment while I was on the west coast. I didn’t know she had invited her sometime boyfriend, Jimi Hendrix, to stay with her. When I arrived home, I found a nasty note from my neighbor, about my loud guitar playing at three in the morning!. The note also said something about people going in and out of my apartment, by way of the fire escape. To this day I don’t know what really happened, but I do admit I was flattered, that she thought it was me playing guitar!”
