Jimi Hendrix


“The bands I met at the clubs made it easy to fix up photo sessions, without the hassle of going through managers and publicists. One band I got to know that way were The Animals and Chas Chandler, their bass player, in particular. In late 1966 Chas brought Jimi Hendrix over to London and was managing him. When the Jimi Hendrix Experience came to Denmark in May 1967 Chas called me and asked me if I’d like to do some photographs with Jimi, Noel Redding and Mitch Mitchell. I took posed shots in the afternoon of 21st May and later shots of them on stage at their concert that evening.”
