is the most condemning heresy dominators affix through media Inquisitions. Continents of credibility are leveled under the "p" word.
magazine's cover story is titled Jimi Stoned Free.
The article focuses on reports of Jimi's drug use, but then, incongruously, the writer contends that "Jimi's songs had their roots in science fiction literature." He then goes on to take credit for discovering that the song Purple Haze
contains images borrowed from Phillip Jose farmer's 1966 novel Night of Light
– and words his "discovery" nearly word for word from my description of this book in my 28-page booklet notes for the 1993 MCA release of the Hendrix album Are You Experienced?
(p. 9). And then this High Times
writer, in a highlighted section of the article, claims to have discovered that the inspiration for Jimi's song First Ray of the New Rising Sun
originates in Arthur Clarke's novel The Sands of Mars."
This is my discovery, and it was published in my 28-page booklet, released by MCA in 1995, with the Jimi Hendrix Voodoo Soup CD
. If the High Times
writer is in that much need of discovering something "new" and relevant about Jimi, why doesn't he do some research like the rest of us? instead of plagiarizing and ripping off my work and research and publishing it as his own.
