Jimi Hendrix by Barrie Wentzell
Photographer: Barrie Wentzell
Location: His manager's office, Soho, London
On a rather dark and rainy afternoon I went over to see Jimi to take a few shots for the upcoming tour he was starting just after he had returned from a long U.S. tour. When I got there I found him alone in his manager, Mike Jefferies, office slumped in a chair behind a desk stacked with paperwork and confusion. Jimi seemed a bit down in spirits. As I took a few shots I asked him if he was ok. He looked up and said “ Sorry, but it’s all this business crap and the pressure of touring all the time and all I want to do is write and play my music”. He looked out of the window and I took this pensive portrait.
