Post 107: 45 years ago today
Exactly a year on from Post 61 and things have moved on considerably, we are not quite there yet but it won’t be long before visitors will be able to step in Hendrix’s footsteps.
One of my colleagues was sharing a story earlier today about his sister who in a telephone conversation only last night reminded him about meeting Jimi in the Chelsea Drug Store on the Kings Road. Being a very young lad, it seems he wasn’t too interested, and can’t now remember this encounter at all. Clearly it remains a vivid memory for his sister though, who managed to get Jimi’s autograph – unfortunately now long lost. Coincidental that this story should surface and be shared, unknowingly, on the eve of the anniversary of Jimi’s death.
Lots of people are thinking about Jimi today.
Progress: Challenging details to finalise
