JimiToday's message is:

This is the day of death of JIMI today,

You should hear HIS wonderful music all day! ! !

Its been 34 years now since you've been gone Jimi. You broke our hearts when you left us 33 years ago. You gave me your all and now it's time for me to give back.
May your star shine bright, may you be an insperation for generations to come and may those people learn not to fight.
May your thoughts and dreams and wonderful songs inspire another. I would find it hard to go through life not knowing one. You showed us that it's not all that hard to act like brothers.

May the memory of Jimi be as strong 34 years from now as it is 34 years after.

For anyone who has hearts and ears;

With the Power of Soul, anything is possible...........................................Jimi Hendrix

Blue HazeWie der Titel schon sagt – mehr blue als purple sind die zumeist sehr emotionalen Be- und Überarbeitungen, die hier viele der bekanntesten Stücke des vor über 30 Jahren verstorbenen Gitarrengenies erhalten. Walter Trout ist gleich mit drei Nummern vertreten, und Eric Burdon steuert mit „I Don’t Live Today“ und „Third Stone From The Sun“ zwei Covers bei. Außerdem am Start: Bernard Allison, Taj Mahal, Vernon Reid sowie Michelle Shocked und Buddy Miles. Am interessantesten sind freilich Alvin „Youngblood“ Harts intensive Interpretation von „Remember“, Eric Gales mitreißendes „Voodoo Chile“ und das romantische „Little Wing“ in der Version des jungen Aynsley Lister. BLUE HAZE zeigt erneut – auch wenn dieser Beweis längst obsolet sein müsste –, dass Jimi Hendrix mehr als nur der aufregendste Rock-Instrumentalist seiner Zeit, sondern vielmehr auch ein begnadeter Songschreiber war. Uneingeschränkt empfehlenswert für Hendrix-Fans, aber auch für alle Anhänger der hier teilnehmenden Künstler. (Ruf Records)

Real Story:
I grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I was 16 and already a big fan. I had just seen him play on May 1, 1970. I heard the terrible news on my way home from high school and did not believe it at first but when I got home the radio news confirmed it was true that Jimi had died. It felt as if my whole world collapsed at the time, I locked myself in my room and listened to all of the Jimi Hendrix albums that I owned. I don't think I even came out to eat dinner that night. Now, those tears are all dried up but I still celebrate the life and music of Jimi Hendrix every day but especially on the 18th of September and November 27th.
RIP, Jimi, we miss ya brother!

....and where were you??? Please mail to me if you like. Thx in advance. Regards Eckhard B.

Uli RothDer Freizeitpark „Schloss Beck“ in Bottrop-Feldhausen präsentiert am Samstag, den 9. Oktober 2004, ein musikalisches Ereignis der ganz besonderen Art: unter dem Titel „Rock Meets Renaissance“ werden inmitten einer aufwendig inszenierten Schlosskulisse hochkarätige Musiker einen Spagat zwischen feinster Klassik und Rockmusik zelebrieren. Im Gegensatz zu gängigen „… meets Klassik“-Veranstaltungen wird bei dieser Veranstaltung die Klassik einen anspruchsvollen Stellenwert erhalten. Die „Stars“ des über 3-stündigen Open-Air-Ereignisses sind hierbei nicht nur auf der Seite der Rockmusik zu finden. Das extra für dieses Event zusammengesetzte Ensemble besteht ausschließlich aus namhaften und bedeutenden englischen Künstlern, die u.a. dem weltbekannten „London Symphony Orchestra“ angehören.
Im Mittelpunkt der Veranstaltung steht der Ausnahmegitarrist Uli Jon Roth. Kaum ein anderer hat es jemals geschafft, das Violinenspiel derartig authentisch auf die E-Gitarre zu übertragen und – gepaart mit einer überwältigen Fingerfertigkeit – so detailgetreu wiederzugeben. Unter der Begleitung des Orchesters wird Roth, neben seiner aktuellen Klassikversion von „Vivaldi’s Vier Jahreszeiten“ und der „Metamorphose“ weitere bedeutende klassische Werke aufführen. Hierzu gehört u.a. auch Mozart’s Zauberflöte.
Uli Jon Roth – der selber über Jahre Gitarrist der bekannten deutschen Rockband „Scorpions“ war –  wird zudem alte Scorpions-Stücke und weitere Rock-Klassiker mit Orchester-Begleitung aufführen.
Es haben bereits mehrere „Special-Guests“, u.a Doro Pesch und die US-Sängerin Liz Vandall (Ex-Sahara) fest zugesagt, das Event stimmgewaltig zu unterstützen. Zudem wird der Rage-Gitarrist Victor Smolski eine Kostprobe seiner klassischen Kompositionen abgeben.
Doch nicht nur die Ohren sollen bei „Rock Meets Renaissance“ auf ihre Kosten kommen: die komplette Aufführung wird durch aufwendige Multimedia- und Licht-Projektionen in Szene gesetzt. Hinter dem Orchester wird eine 10 x 7 Meter große Leinwand installiert, auf der beeindruckende Videos – die von Uli Jon Roth produziert wurden – synchron zur Musik ablaufen. Das komplette Orchester tritt im Renaissance-Stil kostümiert auf.
Aufgrund des ganz besonderen Ambientes wird vor Ort eine DVD produziert; bereits am Vortag der Veranstaltung werden in dem Schloss einige Szenen gedreht. Diese DVD soll voraussichtlich 2005 von Uli Jon Roth weltweit veröffentlicht werden.
Bei der Veranstaltung handelt es sich um eine „Welturaufführung“ und das einzige Uli Jon Roth–Konzert, welches im Rahmen der aktuellen Welttournee in Deutschland stattfinden wird.
Nachdem Roth bereits Anfang des Jahres zusammen mit den Rock-Dinosauriern UFO  erfolgreich durch Europa getourt ist, spielt er derzeit vor ausverkaufte Häuser in den USA.
Gegen Ende des Jahres, will Roth dann in englischen Schlössern auftreten, diese Shows werden jedoch nicht so aufwendig gestaltet wie „Rock Meets Renaissance“.
Die Open-Air-Veranstaltung wird teilbestuhlt und bietet Unterstellmöglichkeiten. Das Gelände fasst 3.000 Personen. Tickets können bei allen bekannten Vorverkaufsstellen oder online (u.a. www.eventim.de) erworben werden.
Mit einem Teil des Ticketpreises wird eine international tätige Kinderhilfsorganisation unterstützt!

Tickets:  34,00 €  (Stehplatz)  38,00 €  (Sitzplatz)   Online:  www.eventim.de
Tickethotline:  01805-570 000 Bezug auch über alle bekannten Vorverkaufsstellen!
Datum: Samstag, der 9.10.2004   Einlass: 18:30 Uhr  Beginn:  20:00 Uhr
Anfahrt mit dem Auto: über A31; Ausfahrt „Schloss Beck“ oder „Warner Brothers Movie World“.
Parkmöglichkeiten direkt am Schloss.
Anfahrt mit ÖPNV: Bahnhof „Bottrop-Feldhausen“ (Warner Brothers Movie World). Bahnhof befindet sich direkt am Schloss.

The world's largest collection of Jimi Hendrix memorabilia - most of which has never been seen, heard or displayed before - is to be launched in a spectacular show at the new Marquee Club (London) over the weekend of 17th - 19th September 2004 and will run for six months.
Worth over $15 million, the incredible collection features hundreds of unseen personal images, footage recordings, and promo materials - all displayed at the legendary club where Hendrix often played.
THE JIMI HENDRIX EXPERIENCE @ THE MARQUEE will exhibit 30 - 40 hours of unreleased music, 200 - 300 hours of personal video - 60% unreleased, as well as over 1000 photographs many unpublished. Jimi's own clothes will be on show including his elk skin fringe jacket and a psychedelic shirt as well as 3 of his legendary guitars, and this is only a small sample of the entire collection.
The Exhibition will run daily until February 2005.

Cooperown auction - Stratocaster owned by Jimi and more.....

Stratocaster owned by Jimi1963 white Fender Stratocaster serial number L08573, patent number 2573254, owned and used by Jimi Hendrix An extensively, concert played and studio used signature white Fender Stratocaster with rosewood fingerboard manufactured on 3rd September 1963, documented in many biographies showing photos of Jimi during the period of 1968 - 70 with the dark rosewood necked Strat. This guitar was given to musician Arthur Louis by Jimi Hendrix on 18th March 1970. After playing a charity show at the Speakeasy Club in London's West End, Louis' Gibson Les Paul was stolen that night from the stage. Arthur Louis was heard complaining about the loss of his guitar at a subsequent party at Mick Jagger's house, where both Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix both offered him a replacement - Jimi offering this Strat and Eric offering him a Gibson. The next day Louis met Jimi Hendrix and John Uribe, who came over with this guitar which he gave to Louis to replace the one he had lost. Some days later he received a note from Jimi saying how sorry he was that he had lost his guitar and that he hoped he was happy with this one (at the time of cataloguing this note was not available for inspection however the vendor is endeavoring to locate it to provide with this lot). It has been confirmed by the vendor that this is the white Stratocaster that was 'liberated' from Keith Richards by then girlfriend Linda Keith who in New York introduced Jimi to most of the rock aristocracy of the time including Andrew Loog Oldham and consequently Chas Chandler. Arthur Louis was, and still is, a well respected composer and guitar player a familiar face at the height of the Speakeasy's hay day, jamming and supporting many of the legends that we know today. The lot is accompanied by a letter from Arthur Louis confirming the lot's history together with a letter from Ray Turley which confirms the date of the instrument and describes in detail that the guitar's pick ups had been set to accommodate Jimi's left handed style and also confirms the extensive use by a left handed player. £100,000-150,000 Commission bids can be placed online now at www.cooperowen.com and until 2.00pm BST on Wednesday 30th June. The auction will then be held live on eBaylive at 4.00pm BST at http://pages.liveauctions.ebay.com/catalogs/catalog5942.html

Lot 51 'Electric Ladyland' LP signed by Jimi Hendrix, Noel Redding & Mitch Mitchell, Dezo Hoffmann Photograph A copy of Electric Ladyland Part 1 signed on the front cover Jimi Hendrix, Noel and Mitch all in blue ballpoint pen. Vinyl included. £ 600-800
lot 53Lot 52 The copyright of Jimi Hendrix' artwork The complete and exclusive copyright for the series of eighteen artworks sold as part of the collection of Bob and Kathy Levine in Cooper Owen's Art & Artefacts of Jimi Hendrix auction on 15th May 2003, the originals of which are now in private hands. The Levine's worked closely with Hendrix in the US, it was Bob Levine who took the call from Jerry Stickells in London to Jeffrey & Chandler Inc. offices in New York on 18 September 1970 telling of Jimi's death. Kathy Levine (then Eberth) was Jimi's P.A. and confidante from 1968 to 1970. It was to Kathy that Jimi gave his unique, and until now unknown, collection of artwork in Hawaii during the filming of Rainbow Bridge before leaving to go to the Isle of Wight festival in August 1970. According to Bob, Jimi carried two sketchpads with him for several years and on occasions when he was alone happily doodled and drew, painstakingly colouring them in suitably psychedelic felt pen. Some of the drawings appear to have begun as small doodles but develop into intricate, highly involved designs, some recurring motifs include petals, leaves, blazing suns and hooded figures - potentially a field day for a psychologist. The Hendrix Estate has confirmed that the Levine's own the copyright for the collection. ESTIMATE ON REQUEST.

In der Liste der "50 Unsterblichen", die das US-Magazin "Rolling Stone" jetzt zum Jubiläum der Rockmusik veröffentlichte, stehen die Beatles an erster Stelle. Den zweiten Platz vergaben die Juroren - mehr als 50 Promis der US-Rockszene - an Bob Dylan. Elvis bekam nur Rang drei, gefolgt von den Rolling Stones, Chuck Berry, Jimi Hendrix, James Brown, Little Richard, Aretha Franklin und Ray Charles. Auch Reggae-Star Bob Marley und die Beach Boys mit ihrem California Surf Sound werden zu den Rock-Ikonen gezählt, genau wie die Hardrocker von Led Zeppelin, Bruce Springsteen, die Doors, The Who und Folkrocker Neil Young, der Blues-Mann Muddy Waters ebenso wie die Popstars Michael Jackson, Madonna und Simon and Garfunkel.

thewoodstockspirit.org Hi. I am contacting you because our group is trying to preserve the original Site of the 1969 Woodstock Festival (aka Yasgur's farm) in Bethel NY of the Catskills region of New York State as an historic site. The property which still includes the famous natural bowl where almost 500,000 converged to watch the likes of Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix play Aug. 15-17, 1969, and the upper plateau where the crowds spilled over into concession areas, is slated to be developed as part of a local billionaire's plans for a performing arts center. Although our group, The Woodstock preservation Alliance (WPA), is all in favour of the arts center, we see the Woodstock site as a unique historic landmark that can co-exist undeveloped within the 1700 acres purchased for the center. We would like to see the Woodstock site remain unfenced with a permanent stage in the bowl so that others will be able to come and experience the place that defined a generation. The WPA is a group of preservationists who are attempting to change plans to build on the land above the bowl area by challenging the developer and their adherence to guidelines for historic preservation a the state and federal level. By summer of 2004, if the plans are not challenged, building will begin on the site as Phase 1 of the performing arts center. We are asking those, like yourself who have websites that cater to people who might be interested in our cause, to help direct them to the WPA website so that they can learn how they might help before it's too late. If you are interested in helping, we are asking participating webmasters to place our website banner in a prominent place to that others will know to visit our site. Absolutely Nothing is being sold on our website. All we want is to spread the word of the development plans. Something the developer has been careful Not to do. To obtain the banner ( with HTML tag already inserted), please go to thewoodstockspirit.org/imglink.htm where you will find the banner to place on your webpage. We thank you for the time and hope that you can help preserve this globally reknown historic landmark, so it can be experienced for generations to come. Sincerely, Brad Littleproud (Toronto, Ontario, Canada) The Woodstock Preservation Alliance www.thewoodstockspirit.org

Genialer Gitarrist:

Uli Jon Roth stellte sein Projekt "Metamorphosis" in Hannover vor.

Vivaldi trifft Hendrix

Uli Jon Roth gibt beeindruckendes Konzert

"Metamorphosis (of Vivaldis Four Seasons)", so heißt das aktuelle Album des  Gitarristen Uli Jon Roth (ex Scorpions, Electric Sun). Der Ex-Hannoveraner und seit mehr als 20 Jahren in Wales lebende Ausnahmemusiker ist zurzeit zusammen mit der britischen Hardrock-Band U.F.O. auf Europatour. So war es denn auch nicht verwunderlich, dass Uli den größten Teil seines Auftritts im Hannoveraner Capitol aus Material von Antonio Vivaldis "Vier Jahreszeiten" bestritt.
Nur als Duo zusammen mit dem Keyboarder Michael Bramwell, Uli selbst nennt ihn den neuen Keith Emerson, schaffte er unter Zuhilfenahme modernster Technik ein atemberaubendes Klangbild aus Tasteninstrumenten und Rockgitarre.
Wer nun denkt, dies sei mit nur zwei Instrumenten unmöglich, hat sich schwer getäuscht. Der Einsatz von elektronischen Samples macht so etwas sehr gut möglich, sodass ein komplettes Orchester an keiner Stelle vermisst wurde. Mit den Fähigkeiten Michael Bramwells hatte Uli im Vorfeld nicht zuviel versprochen, denn der rief nicht einfach nur eine Sample-Sequenz nach der anderen ab, sondern spielte die abgerufenen Sounds alle per Hand.
Zusammen mit Uli Jon Roths phantastischen Gitarrenfähigkeiten auf seiner 7-saitigen Sky-Guitar, entstand so ein kaum fassbares Soundgebilde, das auch nicht vor Bob Dylans "All Along The Watchtower" in der Version von Jimi Hendrix sowie vor älteren Songs seiner ehemaligen Band Scorpions halt zu machen brauchte.

Eigentlich schade, dass sein Auftritt im Vorprogramm von U.F.O. auf 60 Minuten begrenzt war und er daher auch keine Zugabe geben konnte. So wäre es denn auch kein Wunder, wenn Uli an diesem Abend vielen der eingefleischten U.F.O.-Fans die Tür zur Klassischen Musik geöffnet hat.
Denn nicht nur Hardrock wird laut gespielt und ist aufregend.

Bleibt am Schluss nur noch zu sagen: Ein geniales Konzert mit zwei nur genialen Musikern!!!
