Hell, he deserves a bottle of 18 year old bourbon ... my treat.

I'll be happy to collect at the 10/26 Irvine show. :)

I wish I were going to be there, however, if you are ever back East ...

'Lost' Jimi Hendrix Album Discovered

World Entertainment News Network reports that a lost album Jimi Hendrix recorded with rocker Stephen Stills has been discovered more than 30 years after it was recorded.

Stills recently found the recording among a stack of material he taped during the 1970s, and his Crosby, Stills And Nash bandmate Graham Nash is helping him prepare it for release.

Nash tells the Las Vegas Sun, "He has an enormous history of recording. In the '70s, he was a recording fool. He just found a bloody album he made with (Jimi) Hendrix.

"'Oh yeah, I forgot that.' We've got to listen to that... I want to listen to every track he ever recorded in case he recorded with Al Jolson."

Hendrix's solo work in progress at the time of his death has previously been issued as the album First Rays Of The New Rising Sun, but the news of extensive recordings with Stills is a revelation.

Stills' 1970 self-titled debut album did feature Hendrix on one track, Old Times Good Times, but now it seems that there is an album's worth of material. Stills' album also featured Eric Clapton, but it's not known whether there is attack featuring all three guitarists – Clapton has never claimed he recorded with Hendrix, even though the two were friends.

Jimi Hendrix Biopic To Begin Filming

The life and career of Jimi Hendrix has long been talked about as a subject for a film, but it looks like it will finally be happening. According to reports, the movie, which currently has the title ‘All Is By My Side,’ will soon begin filming in Ireland, and will star Andre Benjamin, better known as Andre 3000 from the group Outkast.
 
However, instead of being the all-encompassing look at Hendrix’s career that is often the case with biopics, ‘All Is By My Side’ will focus on the period of 1966-7 when Hendrix was discovered in New York, brought to England and recorded his first album, ‘Are You Experienced.’
 
Benjamin has been trying to get a Hendrix biopic made since at least 2004, when the Hughes Brothers (‘Menace II Society’) were involved with the movie. ‘All Is By My Side’ will be written and directed by John Ridley, who wrote such acclaimed movies as ‘Three Kings’ and ‘U-Turn.’
 
As an actor, Benjamin has some experience, having co-starred with Will Ferrell in the comedy ‘Semi-Pro,’ a look at the days of the American Basketball Association. He has also appeared on ‘The Shield’ and did voice-over work on the animated series ‘Class of 3000.’
