Jimi Hendrix by Barrie Wentzell

The office of Mike Jeffrey’s, Jimi’s and the Animals manager. Jimi had just come back from a tour of the States and seemed to be a bit down this day. Sitting behind his managers desk alone and feeling blue. I asked him what was wrong? “ Hey! Sorry I can’t be looking happier for the pictures but it’s just the pressure of ‘the business’ gets me down sometimes, I only want to play music.” By the time I took the last picture of him looking out the window at the Soho street below he started to smile and said “ Thanks for coming by and listening to ‘my blues’, I feel O.K. now.”
