How cool is that story
You re right,my mistake, i was reading an article about Jimmy Page just few minutes before posting ,could be the reason...
Dessert! That's awesome.
My high school English teacher used to work at Manny's back in the 60's. He told me about when he met Jimi. He got a pack of strings autographed.
I have a good friend that can spin a tale like that.
That's great. The perspective of his is awesome; all ignorant of what he's about to get into. I like the building of importance as he recognizes all these giants in the front row. It was probably the first time stage hands had to shovel bricks off the stage!
Great story, that's awesome.
I once met a man who met Andy Griifith.
Charming version of an old story. Everyone who was there that night seems to remember it pretty clearly.
I met Hendrix once, at the Record Plant. I wonder how many folks here have met him?
I remember Pat Martino coming to U of North Texas and telling us all about when he was a kid, taking lessons from this guy who was friends with Coltrane, and one day the young Pat and Coltrane sat at a diner and talked about music.
Everyone in the room was paying attention to that story.
Great post, funny video. What was the name of the band that Squire was playing in at that time? I know Yes opened for Cream at some point in '69, but had it formed by this point in time?
Sounded like Chris said his band was "The Sin" or something like that.
That was an incredible story and exceptionally well told. I can't even imagine what it would be like to have a moment like that in your life.
Without looking it up- I thought Squire was in a band called Earth prior to Yes.
It's pretty awesome that this was going to be "just another gig" and what it turned out to be.
It's also pretty cool that Chris Squire was a nobody and ended up being a somebody- entirely independent of this event.
I think the band he was talking about was called The Syn .
I can't begin to imagine what the atmosphere was like in that room.
Was that Jimi's first show in London?
The JHE first played the Marquee on the 24th Jan 1967 and were supported by Syn. Hendrix had only been in England for about 4 months but in that time he had played a lot of other clubs around London. Hey Joe had been released on 16th Dec 1966 which accounts for the bands burgeoning popularity by early 1967.
