The author, Beckley, says, "I can't say in all honesty that I really knew Jimi Hendrix, but I did see him give a number of really good performances. It was at one of those post- Woodstock concerts where I managed to wind my way backstage. Jimi Hendrix was leaning up against a wall of amps and speakers. As I walked past him, we both just kind of nodded as if we recognized each other, and to this day I can swear I heard him ask me, 'and what planet are you from pal? Jimi expressed a great interest in matters of an extraterrestrial nature, had admitted seeing UFOs, and once told a reporter from The New York Times that he was really from Mars. And he wasn't kidding either. David Henderson, in his book The Life of Jimi Hendrix (Bantam), quotes Jimi's feelings about life on other planets: "There are other people in the solar system, you know, and they have the same feelings too, not necessarily bad feelings, but see, it upsets their way of living for instance - and they are a whole lot heavier than we are. And it's no war games, because they all keep the same place. But like the solar system is going through a change soon and it's going to affect the Earth in about 30 years. On several occasions during his career, UFOs just happened to show up while Jimi was giving a concert. During the last days of his life, he performed on the rim of an extinct volcano in Maui. Jimi played three 45-minute sets, says Henderson in his best-seller.

Too much Purple Haze. (Or maybe he slept on Owsley’s floor.)

I have often wondered the samething about 0bama: What planet is he from?
I’ve always loved that song..
Obama’s from the planet Hoover.
That’s why he sucks at everything he does.
If time travel is ever invented, I’m going back to see a Hendrix concert. Zappa too if the tickets are reasonable.
Sound like a neighbor who insists there are people living inside Jupiter.
take anything that any such people say = take anything that any such people say seriously
Me too. And I want to see Led Zeppelin do their ‘Song Remains the Same’ gig at Madison Square Garden.
Ever wonder if the opposite was true? That they were insane because of things they witnessed or were privy to?
I’ve often wondered this. chicken vs. egg thing.
another reason to lay off then heavy drugs...
There are a few musicians that I like so much, I forgive their nuttiness or eccentricities. Jimmy is one.
