* The myth:

"Hendrix was a crazy black man who did funny things with

a guitar, had thousands of women, and eventually died of

drugs, which was a shame because he was a really good

guitarist and he could play it with his teeth, too."

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Sometimes you want to give up the guitar,

you'll hate the guitar.

But if you stick with it,

you're gonna be rewarded.
Jimi Hendrix.

To begin with I'd like to point out that this set of files (hj-faq1.txt,

hj-faq2.txt, hj-faq3.txt) isn't really a FAQ, but more a collection of facts,

rumours, reviews, or anything of interest that has been distributed on the

HEY-JOE mailing list since its creation. Maybe, someday someone will write a

proper FAQ file for this list, at which point I'll gladly give these files

another, more appropriate name. But until then here is the HEY-JOE FAQ:

Here is a list of abbrievietions commonly used throughout these files:

ABAL - Axis Bold As Love. The title of the Jimi Hendrix Experience's 2nd.


AYE - Are You Experienced? The title of the Jimi Hendrix Experience's 1st.


BOG - Band Of Gypsys.

COL - Cry Of Love. The title of the album that Jimi was working on just

before he died.

EL - Electric Ladyland. The title of the Jimi Hendrix Experience's 3rd.


JHEG - Jimi Hendrix: Electric Gypsy. This is the title of the excellent book

by Glebbeek & Shapiro, that is generally accepted as the 'best'.

After each article the author and mailing date are included in '[]' brackets.

Sometimes you'll find '[Unknown]', this is because when I started to compile

these files it was basically just for my benefit. Only later when I decided

that others might also find them interesting I decided to include the author

and date, and blowed if I was going to wade through the archives again just

for that.



hey-joe has an archive available via anonymous ftp. In it you will

find past postings and many other neat things such as articles from

Goldmine, a Jimi Hendrix discography, these FAQ files, and more!

UniVibes bills itself as the "International Jimi Hendrix Magazine" and

attempts to cover "all matters Hendrix". It is put together by Caesar

Glebbeek, who is one of the authors of the excellent book "Jimi Hendrix:

Electric Gypsy". UniVibes comes out 4 or 5 times a year, and the current

issue (#11) is 44 pages. Typical issues include things like:

- latest bootlegs released

- equipment reviews

- in-depth concert reviews (eg Jimi at Woodstock)

- interviews with people who knew/played with Jimi.
Subscriptions: $US 40 for US customers (sorry, I don't have pricing for other

countries). You get 5 copies per subscription - I'm not sure whether this

covers 1 year or 1 1/4 years. It seems like 1 year since I originally

subscribed, I've received 5 copies, yet the magazine states that is is

"published quarterly".
Back Issues: Issues 1 - 5, 7 are sold out. A "best of 1 - 5" is available.

Other back issues are available. Cost for each of these is 1/5 of yearly

subscription rate.
UniVibes released a special, subscribers-only CD last year called "Calling

Long Distance". It has a number of unreleased tracks, and is excellent (IMHO).

It costs $US 22 (air mail included). This is a limited edition (they still

have some left) and is limited to one per subscriber. There are plans for

another CD later this year, but no details are available at this time.

|I write for JimPress so I like it quite a bit, but it really is a good

|Hendrix fanzine, and it is for the fans, about bootlegs and not to technical.


|[Craig Houck - 18 Feb 94]

>Is anybody sure of what Jimi's christened name is... I've seen numerous

>claims, one that says James Marshall Hendricks is his given name. This seems

>like it would be a promotion thing, Marshall amps and all.
His birthname was Johnny Allen [sp?] Hendrix, but his father had it changed

when he was 4 or 5 to James Marshall Hendrix. This is documented in many

biographical works.
>I heard somewhere (I think it was the JH movie) that one of Hendrix's

>grandparents was an American Indian. Which one was it, and which tribe was

>(s)he from?
His maternal (?) grand-mother was 1/4 (?) Cherokee (?).
