In September 1967 I had one of the most important musical experiences of my life. Jimi Hendrix played in an old barn in Högbo, outside Sandviken. I brought with me my camera, my tele and a whole roll of unexposed film. The lightning was poor and I did my best to keep my camera steady in the packed crowd, not that successful all the time. The negs are much underexposed, despite the brutal development of the film. I kick myself for twenty minutes every day for not doing a better job at such a unique opportunity.
The show? It was fantastic, of course! Much better live than on any of his records. This experience is the reason I regard Hendrix as the best and sonically most innovative guitar player ever! He really expanded the envelope for what you can do with an electric guitar.
