Manhattan’s Lighthouse

by Kees de Lange

At 2180 Broadway in New York City, on the corner of West 77th Street, until a few years ago you could find the
Manhattan Diner.

Manhattan Diner at 2180 Broadway, NYC.

In the ‘60s it used to be the Lighthouse, and Jimi Hendrix played there with the Squires together with Curtis Knight, Ace Hall, Ditto Edwards and sometimes Lonnie Youngblood. According to
Ace Hall it was the Squires second gig after their debut at George’s Club 20 in Hackensack, NJ. As Ace reminisces Jimi was the absolute star, attracting all the girls first while their boyfriends were won over in their slipstream. The Squires made quite a name for themselves there. CONTINUED HERE.

Jimi in Vancouver

Avid Jimi Hendrix fan Jordan Roberts wrote a very nice story on Jimi's connection with Vancouver. Roberts: “In this story I will outline and describe the factual story of Jimi Hendrix’s small but very significant connection to Vancouver. Over the years since Jimi’s death there has been many references to Jimi’s connection to Vancouver in the dozens of books written about him. But the story has always been under represented and full of factual inaccuracies. In this story I will describe in full detail the true story of Jimi Hendrix in Vancouver.” Full story here.

From a satisfied customer:

“A really great read. The only negative was, I knew how it ended. Never the less It was good to be able to see the whole thing thru your eyes having never gotten the chance to see Jimi live myself. The book had a bit of the "You Are There" feel to it. To be that close , see a sound check and witness Jimi in concert is some thing I can only imagine. To have heard (and felt) those sounds up close must surely have been life changing. Your photos were very interesting too and the color shot on the cover is one of my favorites from the RAH gig. The book is a great addition to the Hendrix history books.”
