    Sunday 30 July 1967
    USA (PA)
    THE SCRANTONIAN (page 7A) Jimi Hendrix Experience Rocks Stage’
    It’s a long trip from Seattle to New York, even for a talented performer. It’s an even longer trip when
    you have to go by way of London and points East.
    Jimi Hendrix, born in Seattle 21 years ago, made
    the trip to England at the behest of former
    Animal Chas Chandler, who matched singer-guitarist
    Jimi with a drummer Mitch Mitchell and bass player Noel Redding, a pair of local boys, to form the
    trio that is rapidly getting known around the world as
    the Jimi Hendrix Experience
    The Experience on stage is a mass of seething, jumping writhing action. Hendrix throws his guitar
    up, down and all around. He picks the strings with everything including his teeth, he has even been
    known to smash his instrument in the frenzy of a closing number. At the recent
    Monterey Pop
    Hendrix burned his guitar to the roar of the crowd.
    Jimi’s first release in England was “Hey Joe,’’ a song that has hit both there and here in the U.S. in
    the recent past,
    The Experience's record went e straight into the Top 5. Their second release,
    Purple Haze,” written by Hendrix, was the first record released in England on the Track label and
    it went to the top and while it was there
    Track released “The Wind Cries Mary,” a song that the
    had cut as an afterthought at the "Purple Haze,” session in a total of six minutes
    including rehearsal, and for the B first time since the Beatles had done it a new group had a pair in
    the English Top 10.

    Now Reprise Records, in the U.S. has signed the homecoming prodigal son and has quikly released
    The Winds Cries Mary” and “Purple Haze” as the group’s first single.
    The Experience itself, in order to kick off its first U.S. release, is currently on a nation wide tour along
    with the Monkees, and the fans’ first reaction to the sound and fury of
    the Experience recalls the
    shrieks and moans that some years ago greeted a little known Southern named
    Elvis Presley.
    The future book of the Experience is filled with return engagements requests from Paris’ Olympia
    and Stockholm’s Tivoli
    [sic, ‘Green Grove’] and the whole range of Theatres and clubs in England, but
    we’ve been assured that after touring the U.S. and fulfilling international dates
    Jimi Hendrix, Mitch
    and Noel Redding will return their musical experience to these shores.

    VI UNGE [‘We Young’] (page 30) [B&W photo in ‘Hussars’ jacket]
    ‘ForJimi Hendrix the uniform was not for fun’
    Jimi Hendrix the mad[ly] looking, the madly performing, the madly talented Seattle-American, who
    with his group
    Experience (which means ‘erfaring’) sent the Falkoner Centret in Copenhagen into
    such crazy and oblique [?] behaviour earlier this year, likes to perform in a special veterans-uniform.
    Many young people today like this. –

    Jimi: We are all anti-war, it’s only the colours we like. We are walking pop art.’
    - But Jimi Hendrix who sometimes tells very crazy stories about himself, has a true story to tell
    about himself and his uniform -

    Jimi: ‘I used to wear a uniform in seriousness, I did my military service in the famous
    American Screaming Eagles Airborne Division, and that was no joke, but I got through it
    early and voluntary. Then happened what happened to me, I was record-discovered
    through England and Decca and all that stuff, and listen carefully what happened to me,
    one night I was walking through the streets of London in my old silly uniform.

    One of the police cars pointed at me with their flashlight, and the police officer started
    questioning me, ‘What is this uniform?’ didn’t I know that this uniform used to be serious
    for a man who exposed himself to death in that uniform etc. And what else did I do for a
    living, and who I worked for?
    The Experience? Who did I think I was, talking about
    After a long time, I showed them my passport and told them that the uniform was
    from 1898, and that it used to belong to an officer in the - Veterinary Corps. And that I
    used to wear a uniform that was bloody serious to me in the USA. And that by
    I meant that I had
    experienced quite a lot. ‘A lot of what?’ one of the officers asked quietly.
    ‘Harassment,’ [I said, and the two split.]”
    says the singer-guitarist.

    [Late] July 1967
    GO (#??) (page?) ‘Hendrix quits Monkees tour’:
    The Jimi Hendrix Experience have left The Monkees' tour because of adverse reaction to their
    performance from both adults and Monkees' fans.
    Noel Redding, one of the Experience, told GO:
    "It has nothing to do with The Monkees personally. We really like them and they like us."

    The problems apparently arose because mothers who saw the show objected to
    Jimi's act a
    representative for
    Hendrix said it was similar to the problems Elvis Presley had with his gyrations in
    the early days of rock 'n roll.

    "We received many letters of protest from people and decided to call a halt to the whole affair," he

    Jimi says he is not worried about leaving the tour. He has a single out and wants to spend as much
    time as possible pro
    -moting it,
    After leaving the tour the group worked dates in New York City to capacity crowds, then flew to
    Seattle last week
    end for a Mamas and Papas concert appearance.
    Hendrix joined The Monkees' tour after working at The Monterey Pop Festival and Central Park in
    New York.

    At first, his reception by Monkees fans was not what he would have liked and he received little
    advance publicity when the tour was advertised.
    Frank Zappa: "Rock journalism is people who can't write interviewing people who can't talk for people who can't read."

    [UNKNOWN paper] (page?) [title?]
    THE MONKEES are in Palm Beach doing their movie [‘Head’]; so far they've filmed war scenes, a steam
    bath sequence, and pad scenes. They're playing themselves, but not quite like they played themselves
    on the telly. Which probably means that instead of playing a starving rock group, they will portray a
    RICH rock group.

    Peter has written a song for the movie, called "Can You Dig It?" no doubt inspired by his recent
    grooving with
    the Jimi Hendrix Experience. (Peter sat atop Noel Redding's amplifier during the
