Jimi Hendrix

Before his San Francisco concerts in February 1968, we met Jimi at his motel on Fisherman’s Wharf.  As the writer was interviewing a surprisingly quiet Jimi, I shot some informal portraits, one of which appeared on the cover of Issue No. 26.  It was impossible to take a bad photo of Hendrix; he was the most photogenic musician I ever encountered, whether he was in motion on the stage or at rest with his friends.
