    Thanks Offbeat for allowing us to be able to read these witty and informative articles by Randy Savoie. This was a great article. Fully enjoyed reading it. Jimi signing the chihuahua has to be one of the funniest things I have ever read. I can just image what the poor chihuahua must have been thinking. He must of thought; what the hell just happened and what’s up with the tatoo?.
    Hendrix playing his guitar the way he did, had to be amazing. Flinging the guitar in the air, catching it and not missing a beat as he continued to play, had to be amazing.
    I think Hendrix was the pioneer of playing guitars in unsual ways. I don’t think I ever saw or heard of anyone playing a guitar with their teeth, before Henrix is pretty f”in wild.
    Thanks again offbeat, look forward to reading more articles by Randy Savoie in future issues.

    I was fortunate enough to discover Jimi at the tender age of nine, thanks to my older sister bringing home a copy of Are You Experienced… Loved him then and always will. Long live Jimi! Often imitated, never duplicated!!!!

    i was there and i remember mitch was kicking his bass drum so hard a stage hand ran out with a hammer and some nails and while they were playing nailed his bass drum to the stage. later on jimi blew out some of the speakers on those marshals but instead of stopping the show he fiddled around and managed to keep going. what a show! there may have been 3000 people or so.

      I, too, saw the roadie working on Mitch’s bass drum. However, he didn’t use nails, the roadie was hammering a fistful of screwdrivers into the stage to try to keep the kick drum from moving around.

    I was there with 3 friends front row center. So, right before the show started I figured I’d hit the restroom. I was walking in the hall right under our seats that also led to the stage and turned the corner and ran right into Jimi, Mitch and Noel. I said hi to all 3 and Jimi shook my hand and said “Hey”. So, when I get back up to my seat I tell my friends what happened and they said ‘bullshit..” Still to this day they don’t believe me but, they’re starting to come around since the story details never changed. But, it was great to meet all of them. I have some photos and a concert poster from that night in my office on the wall (and insured.)

    I was there along with a bunch of my neighbors. We were living at the Norgate Apartments on Division ST in Metairie that summer, it was mostly all college students and whenever a good concert came to town the parking lot would become total chaos for 30 minutes then a ghost town, and you always knew to find everyone. Jimi was fantastic, I’d never heard of him before, a friend played Are You Experienced for that evening but nothing could have prepared me for what I saw there. I feel very lucky I went.
