A wonderful rare clip of Jimi Hendrix recorded in 1969. As you may know, it's been forty years since Hendrix died after ingesting nine of his girlfriend's prescribed Vesperax sleeping pills, a strong German brand he was unfamiliar with. The normal dose was half a tablet. According to a medical examiner, Hendrix asphyxiated in his own vomit. This was the sad end of the brilliant and influential musician. Hendrix is now buried in his hometown of Seattle.
