[Tape cut]
Flip : …people give you a cookie this evening
Aud : [Laughter]
Flip : You see. I’m gon’ put dat under dere…
[Tape cut]
Flip : My next guest has one of the most unique and unusual styles on the music scene
today, he’s featured in the current motion picture success ‘Monterey Pop’($) This is his first appearance on the Tonight Show, so will you please welcome the ‘Jimi Hendrix Experience’
Aud : [Applause]
Flip : Jim!... Glad you could make it there
Jimi : Yeah
Flip : Glad you could make it
Jimi : I am too, it’s nice huh
Flip : Fine, an’ I-I, I wanted to-uh, so many people have been asking, because they’ve
Aud : [Laughter]
Flip : …huh-wha’? No, no. So many people’s been asking because they’ve heard that
you regard your, your performance as a spiritual experience…
Jimi : Hmm… [under his breath:] “Listen to him”
Flip : …so, uh, if there’s, is there some comments you’d like to make about that we’d all
be very interested
Jimi : Yeah, let’s see now, spiritual
Flip : I can dig it, I can dig it, baby
Aud : [Laughter]
Jimi : Ha-ha-ha-uh, yeah, somebody’s going to have to, heh, in here today
Flip : I’ll dig it.
Jimi : It’s a thing that, uh, it’s, I don’t know, after… goin’ to church for a few times an’
gettin’ thrown out o’ there because you’ve got tennis shoes on with a blue and black suit...brown shirt, the works…
Flip : Yes
Jimi : …and then after politics tell you this hogwash about this and that, you know, you
decide an’ say, “Well let me get my own thing together,” you know, and so music is my, my scene. My whole life is based around it. So quite naturally it comes to be even more than a religion. And so what I learn, through the experience of it, I try to pass on to other people, you know, through our music, so it won’t be so hard for them to go around. Like for instance all this violence, people runnin’ ‘round through the streets, you know. I can understand their point but, like, uh, if they dig the sounds and let the spiritual, look, it’s like church actually, you know
Flip : Yes
Jimi : .. just like church, how you go to a gospel church and we’re tryin’ to get the same
thing through-uh, modern day music, you know...
Flip : I can dig it, very easily, there’s no problem, no…
Jimi : [In strange voice, under his breath:] “Stupid jerrrrk”
Flip : I was checking, I-I-I, I was checking, doing, doing a little research on you. You’re
Saggitarian also..
Jimi : Constantly
Flip : Yeah
Jimi : Yeah
Aud : [Laughter (at Jimi’s joke)]
Flip : I’m Saggitarian myself
Jimi : Yeah?
Flip : Yeah
Jimi : Really?
Flip : And, because, when I’m, when I’m very interested…
Jimi : Great to see you
Flip : …in people, I try to check ‘em out, and find out as much as I can
Jimi : Choc-ices(2) get stoned too. What day are you on?
Flip : December eighth
Jimi : Yeah
Flip : Ah
Jimi : Twenty seventh is mine
Flip : Twenty seventh of November
Jimi : Mhh, yes
Flip : Sammy Davis, myself. Let’s see, on December eighth is: Sammy Davis, Winston
Churchill, Kirk Douglas, myself, Sinatra’s on the seventh…
Jimi : Mhh
Flip : …and-uh, who else? Maurice Chevalier
Jimi : I know quite a few of ‘em
Flip : Peace
Aud : [Laughter (at Jimi’s joke)]
Flip : Yeah…
Jimi : A-huh
Flip : That’s the sign of great entertainers – Saggitarius
Jimi : Yeah…
Flip : That’s why I checked you out… I can dig it. I feel like we all got something to offer,
you know, when we check to find our thing…
Jimi : All right, man
Flip : .. and the-we represent, in my opinion, God, and what we give to each other…
Jimi : Right
Flip : …and we’re all supposed to come here and put something in the pot, and go
? : Yes!
Flip : You know
Jimi : [? in silly voice:] Yes!
? : Yes!
Jimi : [? in silly voice:] Man!
Flip : Don’t just come here, y’know…
Jimi : [? in silly voice:] Amen!
Flip : …and suck up all the air! Y’know
Aud : [Laughter]
Flip : You loo’…
Jimi : …temple of God anyway, you know…
Flip : I’d say
Jimi : …that’s why you have too have some kind o’ ideas [Eye dreams? I-jeans?] on yourself, regardless
of what you’re like outwards, you know?
Flip : Yes
Jimi : And, like, once you carry God inside yourself4, well then you’re part off him, he’s part
of you, you know?
Flip : Well Jim, it’s my pleasure to extend an’ invitation to you to whip a light sermon on us
Jimi : Great
Aud : [Laughter (at Flip’s joke)]
Flip : Yes. Jimi Hendrix! Ladies and gentlemen
Jimi : I’d like to say first of all this is Billy Cox our new(3) bass player. We’ll do a thing called
‘Here Comes Your Lover Man Out The Widow I Can See Him’..
