May this be Brad

Jimi-Hendrix-and-Brad-Pitt
Serenity, balance, order: That's the vibe, at least. That's what you think you're feeling in the kitchen of Brad Pitt's perfectly constructed, awesomely decorated abode. Outside, children's bikes are lined up in the rack; a blown-up dragon floatie bobs on the pool through the window. From the sideboard, with its exquisite inlay, to the vase on the mantel, the house exudes care and intention. And it carries its own stories, not just about when the Jolie-Pitts were a happy family, but also from back in the day, when Jimi Hendrix crashed here. It's said he wrote “May This Be Love” out in the grotto, with its waterfall (Waterfall / Nothing can harm me at all…). “I don't know if it's true,” says Pitt, “but a hippie came by and said he used to drop acid with Jim back there, so I run with the story.” SOURCE

Blow job

Jimi's recorder. It was used on "If 6 Was 9" on the Axis: Bold as Love album and which was used in the counterculture hit Easy Rider (1969). After Hendrix's death, the recorder was given by Hendrix's manager, Michael Jeffery, to Hendrix's friend and collaborator, Melinda Merryweather. – (With thanks to Luigi Garuti)

Buddy Miles: “A lot of people have given me personal high praise as a drummer from my work with Hendrix,” Buddy said in a 2000 interview. “And that’s not to exclude Mitch Mitchell, because I think he’s a hell of a drummer and did a hell of a job with the Jimi Hendrix Experience—but by comparison, it is different worlds. The public was led to believe that [the Gypsys] broke up because I was uncooperative and this and that. As far as I’m concerned, the live album we did speaks for itself. It’s one of the most popular live rock albums ever made.” – (With thanks to Luigi Garuti)
