Post 49: New and old
My in box is overloaded with a variety of references to Jimi Hendrix at the moment and it is hard to select which is most interesting to share. But I think this one wins the prize for novelty value. One of my colleagues went to stay with friends at the weekend who live in a house where Hendrix’s drummer, Mitch Mitchell, used to live. Apparently when Mitchell lived there the pool in the garden was built complete with this amazing and supposedly drug related dragon mosaic. Now that is not a story you hear every day.
On stories that you do hear every day, the Daily Mail featured an article yesterday about Hendrix. It was hung (somewhat loosely) on the new film and featured some pictures of Hendrix in the Brook Street flat. They are normally black and white photos but they seem to have been touched up in colour – I think they look a bit strange but perhaps it adds something?
