Jimi Hendrix Experience – Los Angeles Forum April 26, 1969

November 18, 2022

The new album, ‘Jimi Hendrix Experience – Los Angeles Forum April 26, 1969’ is out now.

The evocative liner notes Billy F Gibbons contributed to Jimi Hendrix Experience – Los Angeles Forum April 26, 1969, chronicling his personal experience witnessing that performance more than five decades ago, are the basis for an animated short film that debuted earlier today. He recently recorded his narration at a studio in Nashville and that audio was matched to animated imagery that compliments his very specific recollection. He wrote/spoke, “VIP seating was yet to be, so we angled over to side-stage.  I stood standing with arms folded and I remember Jimi looked over and gave me a nod, the same nod that he gave me the first night that we played together when the Moving Sidewalks had to flesh out their opening set with “Purple Haze” and “Foxey Lady.”

The release of the long-anticipated album will be preceded by an appearance by Gibbons sitting in with the band on Jimmy Kimmel Live the previous evening.  He’s set to perform Jimi Hendrix material on the actual Gibson Flying V guitar that Hendrix played at the Isle of Wight Festival in 1970.
