I WAS THERE: STEPHAN MIRAMON
I saw Jimi with The Soft Machine at Winterland. I came into the venue as dozens of multi-coloured balloons came down from the ceiling. I kicked one of them to the stage and Jimi kicked it back at the crowd. It was a special moment, as was the show that night. Everyone’s jaw dropped. It was standing room only and I worked my way to the front. I was captivated by his presence and showmanship. It’s a night I’ll never forget, fuelled by some of the best LSD around. I couldn’t go home that night, since I still lived with my parents and was too high to deal with the re-entry. I opted to sleep on the beach. It was cold but magical, as was the show.
