Jimi Hendrix Concert

I was hanging out with my best friend Steve Cohen back in 1970, when one of said, "Hey man there's a Hendrix concert tonight... a Jimi Hendrix Concert at the Madison Coliseum. We didn't have any tickets or a car, but we couldn't stop saying, "It's Hendrix man,.. Jimi Hendrix... "We gotaa go, man!"

So we hopped a bus to Madison and made our way to the Coliseum. It was a madhouse, there were thousands of people milling about outside because the cops wouldn't  let them in... then all of a sudden the doors opened and people started streaming in... we walked along the side of the building and motioned to someone to open up a side door ... the door popped open and we flew in and started running down the hallway ... came to a door, went in and found ourselves in the front row!

There was lots of tension and electricity in the hall ... from the anticipation of hearing the Jimi Hendrix concert and the presence of cops all over the place... I remember staring at the wall of amps .... I was about 16 and had never been to rock concert before ... it was awesome to look up from the seats at all that equipment.

After awhile, the house lights went down and up came the stage lights ... the band, Mitch Mitchell and Noel Redding, filed in and Hendrix grabbed his guitar which I recall was white and plugged in ... he started tuning it up and playing a bunch of licks ... he fiddled around for a while and then tore into the first song.

The volume was beyond belief ... it took me awhile to be able to 'hear' anything ... then I started to recognize the different songs he was playing which included "The Wind Cries Mary", "Purple Haze", "Hey Joe" and "The Star Spangled Banner" which he played as an unaccompanied solo full of passion and fury.

Hendrix didn't say much to the audience ... at one point he broke a string and layed his guitar down on the stage while he went to get a new one ... I remember it just lay there screamin. Also he did lots of tricks .... playing behind his back, with his teeth and setting his guitar on fire ... in the end he smashed his guitar and walked off stage ..."

In the 1960's, attending a Jimi Hendrix concert was a political statement. Jimi Hendrix served as a paratrooper in the US Army for seven months and was discharged due to a broken ankle. Although he wasn't a political activist, Jimi Hendrix became a symbol of the Anti-Vietnam War Movement.
