Truly sad to hear this - I loved the Experience. I always smile though when I remember that line (I think it was White Men Can't Jump) where Woody Harrelson points out that 2/3 of the Jimi Hendrix Experience was white! Rest in peace, Mr. Redding.
Definitely one of the finest rock bassist to have ever played.
That's a bummer. Little Miss Strange is a super cool funky song with great lyrics, one of my favorites.
A tradegy indeed.
Thanks for correcting me Rick, I was always amazed at the fantastic bass lines in those Hendrix songs. I had no idea that was Jimi's playing though.
Are you sure Rick? I read "Sessions" and I don't remember Jimi playing Bass on most recorded songs. On Castles Made Of Sand Jimi told Noel what to play and might of even of done it(or at least showed him) b/c Noel just couldn't get the bass line down. I read that book over 5 years ago so I am not positive.
Sad, another piece of my past leaves. A terrific bassist. And I thought the first album by Fat Mattress was good.
Jeremiah, I said that Jimi played "a lot" of the bass lines; I certainly don't mean "most"; I probably should have said "some". But the real point is that Jimi definitely had a vision in his head of how the bass lines should be played - I just don't want to give Noel more credit than he is due.
This is sad news indeed. I am playing my JHE box set right now. Noel originally was trying out for lead guitar for The Animals at the time but switched to bass to join the Experience Chas Chandler forming. He will be fondly remembered!
Gotcha Rick, Jimi definantly had a specific vision.
