Jimi Hendrix Episode 5: Hired and Fired by Little Richard and Jimi’s first trip on LSD

36 minutes

And none other than the Originator himself, Little Richard, who wouldn’t hesitate to fire the greatest guitar player he’d ever seen for insubordination. The experiences opened his eyes. And then his eyes were opened even wider by a maiden voyage on LSD.
