It was on this day in 1966 when Jimi Hendrix arrives in London with his manager Chas Chandler (formerly of the Animals), on a flight from New York. Jimi arrived with only the clothes on his back. He had sold all his belongings in order to pay a hotel bill in New York. As my friend Andrew Loog Oldham states, "It was a harbinger of things to come for Jimi".

I've included a video of Little Richard  being asked his opinion of Jimi Hendrix. Richard is is usual animated self. Enjoy.
