Hi, my name is Yazid Manou, I'm a french Jimi Hendrix fanatic. Here is an amazing story I'd like to share with you :
Maybe some of you heard the following as I sent it to many people already since mid-february :
In 2005, I found the following in Hard Rock Cafe website (Key West, Florida) :
Telegram dated 10/21/69 sent by Jimi Hendrix to Paul McCartney. The message reads, "We are recording an LP together this weekend in NY. How about coming in to play bass… peace, Jimi Hendrix, Miles Davis, Tony Williams
." Today, still looking for a shot of this amazing document, few weeks ago I found the telegram is on display in Hard Rock Cafe Prague (Czech Republic) accompanied by a response from Peter Brown saying Paul is away on holiday for two weeks
I received the photo (with Brown's answer).I really think Sir Paul McCartney never heard about this information, even forty three years later !
On March 26th, I talked to Peter Brown (Brian Epstein assistant then executive director of Apple Corps). Peter is the one who answered to the telegram on October 22nd, 1969. He laughed when I said I was quite happy to "find him not dead" !! He said "I'm alive and well !
". He did not remember at all this telegram, which is quite natural after 43 years !
But at least, now he knows I put "some" light on this document
Prestigious newspaper Le Monde did a nice article about it and also a London-based journalist :http://legrandnetwork.blogspot.fr/2012/ ... x-how.html
