Lenny Kravitz to Play Jimi Hendrix In Film
You read it here first: Lenny Kravitz is now in talks to play Jimi Hendrix in a biopic of the most famous guitarist in rock history. Sources tell me that Kravitz has secured the dramatic rights to Hendrix's music through his estate, and that his plan is to make his acting debut with the independent film. Lee Daniels, who directed the forthcoming "Shadowboxer" and produced "Monster's Ball," is said to be the producer/director involved. Kravitz is a natural to play Hendrix, from his look to his musical ability. And he may have the acting gene since his mother, the late Roxie Roker, was a star of "The Jeffersons" on TV in the 1970s. One thing the producers might have to do during post-production is eliminate Lenny's many trademark tattoos. This is a lesson for all you kids out there getting tats: one day you may not want them. They're not easy to eliminate. So now we've had biopics of Ray Charles and Johnny Cash, and this new Hendrix movie. Plus, of course,Tina Turner and Jerry Lee Lewis in recent years. What's next?

Einfach nur verbrannt...
Mit der Gitarre, die er falsch herum stets hielt,
So spielte er sich unverschämt in unsre Ohren.
In Seattle als Arme-Leute-Kind geboren,
Sogleich der schwarze Blues ihm stimmungsvoll aufspielt.

Nach Reputation vergeblich er geschielt,
In England erst da holte er sich jene Sporen.
Alsbald er galt als größter aller Gladiatoren.
Der wüst und virtuos wie keiner sich verhielt.

Er konnte uns weitum das Himmelreich aufmachen.
Er streichelt, jault, die Saiten mit den Zähnen greift.
Zu guter Letzt die Bühne wird dann noch geschleift.
Vergönnt nur ihm ein solches Feuer zu entfachen,
als Orpheus Jimi Hendrix ewig ist präsent.
Er ist vergleichlich nicht, ein beispiellos Talent.

(Jimi Hendrix 1942-1970)

Paris - When French high school students sit next June for the exam that determines if they graduate, culture-and-arts majors will be quizzed on a song by 1960s rock icon Jimi Hendrix, according to the education ministry.
"Acting funny but I don't know why, excuse me while I kiss the sky," Hendrix sang in his 1967 classic Purple Haze, taken as a paean to mind-altering substances by the baby-boom generation now approaching retirement. The song, in its original version and in a string adaptation performed by the Kronos Quartet, will figure in one of four sections of the "musical culture" exam, the ministry announced on its website. Each of the themes on the exam are based "on a principal work accompanied by peripheral recordings and studies," the better to "appreciate the multiple facets" of the music in question, the ministry said. Hendrix, whose career lasted barely five years before he died in 1970 at the age of 27, is widely regarded today as a musical genius whose compositions and improvisational style have influenced subsequent generations. The rock legend will be in good company on the national exam, joining Georg Friedrich Handel and medieval composer Perotin, among others.

A group of fans and I are now trying to get a grave stone put on Lucille's grave. She is in the same cemetery as Jimi (Greenwood Memorial) for 47 years now and that is long damn enough. It is not right that the Mother of the freedom child be in a grave marked L. Mitchell on a simple brick or marker as they call it. Lucille died in 1958 and was berried by the state, the Hendrix family had not money at that time I understand that BUT THEY DO NOW! Janie Hendrix has no intention of moving her to the family memorial. Shame on you Al Hendrix shame on you! Everyone else in the family was moved when the memorial was built. We have raised the money for the grave stone. At this point all we need the approval of one of the next of kin. I would like to have this in the works by Jimi's birthday 11/27/05. I am having a hard time connecting with Leon Hendrix and am still trying to locate Joe (He is in the area, I will find him). We mean no disrespect and would love for the next of kin to contact us and pick out the stone and words to go with it. Good God how could have this happen!
Until we meet again,
Bonnie Fitzgerald

Read on the web :
Experience Hendrix and Kramer are currently working on a top-secret Hendrix project to come out next year, one that Kramer says will blow away not only Woodstock, but everything else he has done. "All I can tell you is we're working on a particular thing right now - I won't say what it is - but it is stunning, probably the greatest performance I've seen or heard of Jimi's," he says.
Let's wait and see..................

Hendrix 66 Longlaville39 years ago, on October 66, Jimi played in a small town near mine, Villerupt, in the north-east of France, near the Luxemburg and Belgium borders. It was the third EXPERIENCE gig, and the band opened for french singer Johnny Hallyday.
39 years later, not far from there, I'm promoting LA NUIT HENDRIX 66, to celebrate and resurrect live the music of Jimi. It will take place in Longlaville on Saturday, November 19. Two bands will play that night.
First, local band MAD IN H will play a set of covers, not only from Jimi, but selected from the era. Then, ELECTRIC CHURCH will follow. ELECTRIC CHURCH is the band of Jean Bisello devoted to playing Jimi's music. Along with Jean Bisello on bass, the line-up consits of Jeff Ludovicus on drums and, especially for that night, Hassan Hajdi on guitar. Hassan Hajdi plays guitar in the current line-up of well-known french prog band ANGE. His side-project K'IEN is largely devoted to Hendrix covers, but his joining that night will make it a special, one night event. There will also be video effects during the show, to recreate a "Fillmore-like" feeling.

JimiToday's message is:

This is the day of death of JIMI today,

You should hear HIS wonderful music all day! ! !

Its been 35 years now since you've been gone Jimi. You broke our hearts when you left us. You gave me your all and now it's time for me to give back.
May your star shine bright, may you be an insperation for generations to come and may those people learn not to fight.
May your thoughts and dreams and wonderful songs inspire another. I would find it hard to go through life not knowing one. You showed us that it's not all that hard to act like brothers.

May the memory of Jimi be as strong 35 years from now as it is 35 years after.

For anyone who has hearts and ears;

With the Power of Soul, anything is possible...........................................Jimi Hendrix

Jimi PictureLot 147 Historically significant Recording Console frequently used by Jimi Hendrix in New York City
This recording/mixing console originates from Sound Center Studios in New York City and is the first board Jimi Hendrix worked on in the United States as both an artist and a producer. It is currently a major piece in the Hendrix exhibit at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio. This console is one of the first 8-track consoles ever built and is in excellent, original condition. The following is an excerpt from jimihendrix.com by Hendrix Archivist John McDermott: Jimi Hendrix's sessions at Sound Center Studios are historically significant in that they stand as his first in America where he assumed the dual role of artist and producer. These sessions took place outside of the watchful eye of Chas Chandler, the former Animals bassist who served as the guitarist's Co-Manager and Producer of his first two albums. The full article can be found at: www.jimihendrix.com/news/news,soundcenter.html. Two songs recorded on the console in March of 1968 were issued posthumously. My Friend initially appeared in 1971 on Cry Of Love and is now a part of First Rays of the New Rising Sun. The unadulterated version of Somewhere was featured as part of the Jimi Hendrix Experience box set. (The console's owners also have an original Sound Center Studios 1-inch, 8-track session tape containing the unmixed versions of My Friend and Somewhere. In addition, the tape contains an unreleased early version of 1983?A Merman I Should Turn To Be. The console, complete with a producer's station (not pictured), was custom designed and built by Lenny Stea and Gordon Clark. Some highlights include: 24 inputs x 8 mix x 2 stereo x 1 mono, 8 custom-built compressors and a 266 point patch bay for easy signal assignment. Video interviews exist with the console creator and all of the engineers who recorded with Hendrix on the board. Other artists who recorded on the console include: Aretha Franklin, the Four Seasons, Barry Manilow, The Tokens, The Manhattans, Dion and the Belmonts, the New York Philharmonic and Jeff Beck. World famous songwriter Otis Blackwell also used the console at times. Sold by catalogue only (this lot is based in the US). £65,000-70,000

Jimi Hendrix owned and worn black leather waistcoat circa 1967
A black leather waistcoat with pocket detail, originally with silver and tasselled detail to top and bottom fastening (now missing). This waistcoat is identical to the one Jimi wears on the inside cover of Are You Experienced?, the cover of Smash Hits and documented in several photographs from the period. The waistcoat was given to sometime Eire Apparent member David 'Tiger' Taylor by Mike Jeffrey's secretary Trixie Sullivan. Trixie called to the Madison Hotel, Paddington where the band were staying at the time, with a bag of Jimi's clothing for the Eire Apparent members to selected what they fancied (he had just returned to the States), from which Tiger chose this waistcoat.
David 'Tiger' Taylor joined Eire Apparent in September 1968 and in January 1969 toured Germany with the Jimi Hendrix Experience. Tiger visited Jimi's Brook Street flat many times - he recalls one time playing a Robert Johnson riff to suit his own style, Jimi picked up on it and they started playing together. Jimi would later use the riff at Woodstock and called it Jamming Back at the House, it also appeared on later recordings. A letter detailing Tiger's relationship with Eire Apparent accompanies the lot. £20,000-30,000

Friday, July 8, 2005 Jimi Hendrix deserves an official city tribute By SUSAN PAYNTER SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER COLUMNIST

And send my love to James - Rudy KronfussNEUE TRIBUTE CD  "AND SEND MY LOVE TO JAMES"
ist die neue und bereits zweite Tribute CD von Rudy Kronfuss. Mit James (Marshall Hendrix) ist natürlich Jimi gemeint, dem auch diese CD gewidmet ist. Die 10 Eigenkompositionen sind völlig im Geist und Stil von Hendrix und man möchte fast glauben, daß Jimi selbst hier heimlich mitkomponiert und gewirkt hat. Erinnerungen an ?Cry of Love? und spätere Werke des Meisters werden hier wach und Kronfuss gebraucht wie sein großes Vorbild das Studio als Instrument mit teilweise sehr komplexen Multitrack Arrangementen. Er dürfte hiermit einer der wenigen Musiker sein, die erfolgreich versuchen Jimis Musik weiter zu entwickeln, obwohl dies für viele unmöglich erscheinen mag. Es lohnt sich auf Rudys Homepage zu schauen und auch dessen Hendrix Cover Versionen an zu hören: http://www.rudykronfuss.com/ Für "Sparer" stellt Rudy seine Musik gratis zur Verfügung und Fans können hier via Mail seine CDs bestellen. "AND SEND MY LOVE TO JAMES" muß jeder Hendrixfan unbedingt gehört haben !

Es war Rocklegende Mick Box von Uriah Heep, der uns bei der Eröffnung des Rockmuseums Munich auf die Idee brachte: "Noch ein paar Meter höher", diktierte er einem der zahlreichen Reporter ins Mikrophon, "und Janis und Jimi könnten mitfeiern!" Warum eigentlich nicht? Ein Stockwerk über dem Rockmuseum ist direkt unter den Wolken eine Open Air-Plattform, auf der uns der Wind Münchens um die Nase weht. Auch die Beatles haben mal auf einem Dach unter freiem Himmel gespielt - also wollen, können und dürfen wir das auch, dem Olympiapark sei Dank!

Guitar Center Creates the Ultimate Jimi Hendrix Experience; Leading Music Instrument Retailer Offers an Exclusive Guitar and Amp Customized by Renowned Artist Shepard Fairey  Read more........

DigitechDarauf hatte ich gewartet, endlich das neue Experience Pedal von Digitech antesten. Bei der Musikmesse in Frankfurt hatte ich gestern Gelegenheit dazu. Digitech wird in Deutschland von Warwick vertrieben und die neuen Pedale wurden am Stand von Ralf Jung vorgeführt. Neben dem bereits erwähnten Jimi Hendrix Experience sind in der Artist Signature Series noch das Pedal "The Weapon" mit Sounds von Dan Donegan und das Crossroads mit Sounds von Eric Clapton erschienen. Gleich vorweg, es handelt sich nicht um bekannte Sound Simulationen die einen Amp oder Speaker nachahmen, sondern die Geräte produzieren den Sound der auf den Stücken der Künstler zu hören ist. Eben die Kombination aus Gitarre, Effekten, Amp und Speakern. Die Gitarre die man verwendet ist also egal, das Signal kann direkt in die PA eingespeist werden.
Das Experience produziert den Sound der Stücke: 1 Purple Haze, 2 Wind Cries Mary, 3 Foxey Lady 4 Little Wing, 5 All Along The Watchtower 6 Voodoo Child (Slight Return) 7 Star Spangled Banner (live) / Machine Gun.
Angewählt werden sie über einen kleinen Wahlschalter am Pedal, im Live Einsatz kommt man nicht um den optionalen Footswitch FS3X herum. Zusätzlich gibt es drei Klangregler. Nun zum Wichtigsten, dem Sound. Der wird durch die Digitech Production Modeling Technologie und mit Hilfe von 2 AudioDNA DSP Chips produziert. Wahnsinn! Authentisch! Die Sounds überzeugen und Hendrix Fans spüren sofort zu welchem Song sie gehören. Und hier kommt noch ein tolles Feature zum Zuge. Man kann mit dem Pedal das in der Fersen und Zehen Position kleine Schalter hat, zwischen dem Rythmus und Lead Sound der Stücke wechseln. Eine Super Sache die wirklich Spass macht, für Hendrix Cover Spieler ein tolles Gerät, das für etwa 200 Euro zu haben ist. Am Samstag 9.4.2005 habt ihr beim Publikums Tag der Musikmesse auch Gelegenheit das Teil zu testen. Ach ja, spielen müsst ihr natürlich noch selbst!       Michael 07.04.2005

Rudy KronfussHendrixtribute Konzert mit der "RUDY KRONFUSS EXPERIENCE"
im Zentrum GLOBE in Hilversum / Holland. am Sonntagnachmittag den 24. April um 15.30
Info: http://www.go.to/kronfuss

Wo Jimi H. einmal wohnte:
Ein Stück aus dem Tollhaus, Schauplatz Seattle: um auf dem Gelände einen Neubau hochzuziehen, wurde vor drei Jahren das Haus, in dem Jimi Hendrix vom 12. bis zum 15. Lebensjahr gelebt hatte, einfach um ein paar Blocks versetzt.
Doch nun will man das in Leichtbauweise errichtete Gebäude auch von seinem jetzigen Standort ''vertreiben''. Die Stadt Seatlle hat der '' James Marshall Hendrix Foundation'', Besitzerin des Hauses und Pächterin des neuen Grundstücks, ein Ultimatum gestellt: bis zum 22. Februar '05 musste die Stiftung entweder das Areal erwerben, oder das Haus erneut woanders hin verfrachten.
Ursprünglich hatte die Stadt noch vorgehabt, finanzielle Mittel zur Renovierung des völlig heruntergekommenen Gebäudes zur Verfügung zu stellen, so Ray Goldman von der Hendrix-Foundation.
Der Geburtsort des legendären Gitarristen hätte damit neben dem ''Jimi Hendrix Memorial Rock'' im Woodland Park Zoo und der Statue auf dem Capitol Hill eine weitere Hendrix-Touristenattraktion.
Wo das Gebeutelte Gebäude demnächst unterkommt, ist bis jetzt noch unklar...... James Marshall Hendrix Foundation

The Jimi Hendrix Experience's first single Hey Joe, signed by the entire band, was sold for £2,000, reports the BBC. A poem written by Hendrix two weeks after his infamous appearance at the Monterey Festival where he set light to his guitar went for £10,000. The majority of items on sale at the auction were collected by Bob Terry who began collecting at the age of 17.

Frank MarinoReallive (2CDs live) Frank Marino & Mahagony Rush

Frank Marino war schon immer von Jimi Hendrix insperiert. Dieses Live Konzert beginnt gleich mit Voodoo Chile, Red House folgt bald und immer wieder sind kurze Jimi und andere Cover Zitate zu hören. Frank ist nicht Jimi, er spielt nicht nach, sondern interpretiert in seiner Art. Manchmal erinnern seine spacigen Ausflüge fast an Grateful Dead (manchmal aber auch zu langatmig, wahrscheinlich live, mit der richtigen Kräutermischung gut!). Zum Ende zeigt uns Frank bei Star Spangled Banner wofür er die zwie Quadartmeter Effektpedale braucht. Mit einer kleinen Träne der Nostalgie macht es aber Spass diese Live Scheiben zu hören.

The Jimi Hendrix ExperienceT SEVEN signature tones that changed the world forever Experience Hendrix, L.L.C. and DigiTechT are pleased to announce the debut of the all new Jimi Hendrix Experience Artist Series Pedal, today at the NAMM Conference in Anaheim, California. Since the first time the world experienced Jimi Hendrix, things have never been the same. DigiTech® is honored to be chosen by the Hendrix Digitechfamily, to emblazon Jimi's prophetic musical vision into a truly remarkable performance tool through our Production Modeling technology. Introducing The Jimi Hendrix ExperienceT, the only pedal to capture the tones that changed guitar playing forever. The pedal was created using the original masters at Electric Lady Studios in association with Eddie Kramer, the original recording engineer. The Jimi Hendrix Experience pedal so closely models the fine nuances of Jimi's sounds that each pedal requires TWO of DigiTech's AudioDNAT DSP chips! Eddie Kramer, Jimi's engineer at Olympic and Electric Lady Studio, was an essential part of the Hendrix sound. Who better to help recreate those timeless tones than the man who set up the original mics and ran the mixing board adding his own magic?
Working with DigiTech and our proprietary Production ModelingT technology, he helped rebuild each facet of Jimi's tone, from guitar effects and amp to the vintage outboard signal processors. But it gets even better. Thanks to Eddie and the Hendrix family, we were able to use the original tapes as a reference source for our Production Modeling technology. The results of this once-in-a-lifetime project will amaze you when you hear the Jimi Hendrix ExperienceT pedal. "You realize what a tremendous body of work Jimi has left behind. What we are doing here is taking a little piece of Jimi and putting it in a pedal that will stun the world." - Eddie Kramer The Jimi Hendrix ExperienceT is the only pedal to capture the SEVEN tones that changed guitar playing forever; featuring: Purple Haze :: Intro and solo: Based on: Fuzz FaceT 100-Watt Marshall® Super LeadT Amp; EMT Plate Reverb; Roger Mayer Octavia (solo) Little Wing :: Intro and Solo: Based on: 100-Watt Marshall® Super LeadT Amp; Miniature Rotary Speaker (Homemade at Olympic Studios in England) Voodoo Child (Slight Return) :: Intro and Solo: Based on: Vox® Clyde McCoy WahT; Brown FenderT BassmanT, Amplifier; EMT Plate Reverb All Along The Watchtower :: Intro and Solo: Based on: Acoustic Guitar; 100-Watt Marshall® Super LeadT Amplifier; EMT Plate Reverb Plus three more models. The Jimi Hendrix ExperienceT Artist Series Pedal is available at leading music equipment dealers nationwide.

The world's largest collection of Jimi Hendrix memorabilia is to be auctioned at London's HARD ROCK CAFE on Wednesday 16th February 2005 starting at 10.30am.
Cooper Owen CatalogJimi Hendrix is the ultimate rock icon - his influence still resonating throughout music, fashion and popular culture, nearly 35 years after his untimely death. In November Cooper Owen auctioned the first selection of lots from this vast collection and now comes the second opportunity to own a piece of Hendrix History - all the lots up for grabs were made famous as exhibits in JIMI AT THE MARQUEE - THE ULTIMATE PSYCHEDELIC EXPERIENCE, the exhibition which ran from September to December 2004 to massive popular acclaim. Background Information This astounding collection is originally a result of the dedication and diligence of Bob Terry, a single devoted fan. After seeing Hendrix live in 1967, he set about collecting anything and everything he could lay a hand on that was at all related to Hendrix, becoming close to many in Jimi's private circle - effectively establishing himself with those that mattered. Any items were gratefully received, from ticket stubs to personal recordings, and over the course of nearly forty years, Terry amassed the most complete collection of Hendrix memorabilia in the world. 'Bob was collecting before memorabilia was memorabilia', comments Ted Owen, Director of Cooper Owen. 'He wasn't looking to make a profit, or thinking about the prestige - he just loved Hendrix, plain and simple.'
HIGHLIGHTS OF THE COLLECTION GUITARS & EQUIPMENT The Fender Stratocaster will forever be associated with Hendrix as his guitar of choice. Hendrix's complete mastery of his instrument meant he could play the guitar behind his head, with his teeth, really any way imaginable, leaving both peers and fans stunned with his ability and showmanship. * Three original guitars, including what is believed to be the only left-handed guitar owned by Hendrix * Microphone and microphone box from the last Hendrix US tour, with Jimi's doodles and amp settings inside the lid
CLOTHING AND PERSONAL EFFECTS Hendrix's unique style and attitude sparked hundreds of new trends. Hendrix became a style guru for his millions of fans - reinforcing his iconic status for that generation. * Elk skin fringe jacket * Psychedelic shirt * High School yearbook Jimi's Phone Bill * For £125.65 Hotel Room Keys * From a selection of hotels Model Wearing Hendrix's own jacket * Elkskin Fringe
PHOTOGRAPHY Given Hendrix's fame a surprisingly small number of photographs are available to his fans. The auction will draw from an enormous archive of images - many of which have never been seen before.
WRITING Jimi was extraordinarily prodigious - if he wasn't playing he was writing, if not writing, doodling - these personal outpourings provide unique insights into the way his mind worked and how his creative juices flowed.
PROMOTIONAL MATERIALS Ever since he burst on the music scene, Hendrix releases have hit the streets with dizzying frequency. Each of these releases required artwork, poster art, and other promotional materials. * Tour programmes, tickets and handbills from an amazing array of Hendrix concert dates * Prop from the photo shoot, and test album cover proofs from the notorious UK Track Records version of Electric Ladyland Handbill * Fillmore East, May 10th Poster * Isle of Wight

The world's largest collection of Jimi Hendrix memorabilia - most of which has never been seen, heard or displayed before - is to be launched in a spectacular show at the new Marquee Club (London) over the weekend of 17th - 19th September 2004 and will run for six months.
Worth over $15 million, the incredible collection features hundreds of unseen personal images, footage recordings, and promo materials - all displayed at the legendary club where Hendrix often played.
THE JIMI HENDRIX EXPERIENCE @ THE MARQUEE will exhibit 30 - 40 hours of unreleased music, 200 - 300 hours of personal video - 60% unreleased, as well as over 1000 photographs many unpublished. Jimi's own clothes will be on show including his elk skin fringe jacket and a psychedelic shirt as well as 3 of his legendary guitars, and this is only a small sample of the entire collection.
The Exhibition will run daily until February 2005.

Jimi last played the Marquee in 1967 - He's back.                www.cooperowen.com
