Final Jimi Hendrix interview, one week before he died

from Richard Metzger at Dangerous Minds

“When things get too heavy just call me helium—the lightest known gas to man.” - Jimi Hendrix
The sad (and beautiful) thing about this interview—the last interview Jimi Hendrix ever gave on September 11, 1970, a week before his death at the age of 27—is how happy the guy seemed.

He sounds neither druggy, nor in any way troubled. Full of life and excited about where his music was taking him.

The animation was done by Patrick Smith at Blank on Blank. Produced by David Gerlach. The interview was conducted by Keith Altham and you can hear the full recording at
