Jimi Hendrix

The photos I made of Jimi Hendrix at the Fillmore West and at Winterland – one of which is on the cover of Issue No. 7 – are some of the best live-action pictures in my entire rock and roll archive.  I was onstage with the band, really connecting with the music and Jimi’s movements.  These days, somewhat self-consciously, I often remark I was “playing my Nikon” in harmony with Jimi and his Gibson and Fender guitars.
