CRAWLEY & DISTRICT OBSERVER - ‘Jimi Hendrix excites 900’
“A rare and exciting performance was given by The Jimi Hendrix Experience before an audience of 900 at the Starlight Ballroom, Crawley, on Sunday [15 October]
After an electrical fault in one of the amplifiers had been put right, the Experience broke into their first number, a track from their LP called ‘Are You Experienced’.
This was followed by a couple of earthy blues numbers which were greatly appreciated by the swaying audience.
Then getting every last decibel out of the huge, 100-watt amplifiers Jimi broke into his biggest hit ever in this country, ‘Hey Joe’. In which he plays the guitar with his teeth, rubs the neck of his instrument against the microphone stand, and plays behind his back and through his legs. The audience loved it. He played other big numbers like ‘Purple Haze and ‘Foxy Lady’.
Grand finale was his rendering of the number which stopped the show at the Monterey Pop Festival in America recently, ‘Wild Thing’.
In his dressing room afterwards he said the group had just returned from France and were extremely tired. He said the Crawley audience were ‘lovely people’ and he was pleased with their reaction.
Jimi had a bloody right hand which he had torn on the strings of his guitar. Pictures show Hendrix and part of the Starlight audience.
