    Who knows, we might get a few memories out of somebody, maybe a photo. Maybe a tape! (just dreaming).

    Do you know where I can find photos and of the Olympia recording?

    Audio recording:
    The Jimi Hendrix Experience box set, buy it from Experience Hendrix or at a record store, cause downloading officially released music is illegal .

    One unreleased track, Wild Thing, is available on this site.

    Johnny, a talented charmer, performer, as Jimi was, but just an interepreter and non instrumentalist.

    I came across this wider crop of one of those Olympia stage shots. You can see Mickey Jones on the right (with tamborine) and Vic Briggs just behind him.

    Re: Jimi Hendrix/Johnny Hallyday

    In an article I wrote for the February 2011 issue of Jukebox magazine, I told the story of a Jocelyne, a girl who attended a Johnny Hallyday show in Nancy on 14 October 1966. She was 16 at the time. The show was opened by the Jimi Hendrix Experience as you well know. After the concert, she managed to get her precious Johnny Hallyday EP signed by no fewer than six musicians, including Jimi himself. I finished the article by musing "And what if she were to manage to add Johnny's signature to the record sleeve too, almost 45 years later?"

    This is exactly what came to pass on 29 March, at the recording of a Taratata (famous french musical TV show) devoted to Johnny Hallyday, was broadcast yesterday evening on France 4 (and again on Friday 6 May on France 2 at around 1am). Presenter Nagui's assistant contacted me a week before filming to find an interesting and original angle linking one JH to the other JH
    . Nagui agreed to invite Jocelyne (who now lives in the South of France) to the recording. She was at last able to meet her hero, whom she hadn't seen since 1966. A few kisses later, Johnny was filmed signing her record sleeve beside Jimi's signature. All's well that ends well...

    Interesting to see that Hendrix was already using the "Jimi" spelling of his name less than a month after arriving in England.

    Linda Keith (I think) claims he used it in Greenwich Village before he even met Chas Chandler.

    Many thanks to Yazid for his help. I am not sure that my follow-up adds to what he has posted here and written in the past, but here it is for those who may be interested.

    A couple of interesting comments have also been left at each posting, including someone recalling Noel reporting back from his first encounter with Jimi with the words: "I have just met a guitar genius."

    Re: Jimi Hendrix/Johnny Hallyday

    In the bonus of a TV documentary ("Johnny Hallyday - La France Rock'n'Roll") just released on DVD last June 6th, Johnny (in his ultimate filmed interview from LA on April 2017) confirmed (for the very 1st time) that Jimi never played with him on the "Hey Joe" studio recording !

    We all knew it but at last the late singer told the truth few months before his death.

    End of that crazy story begun 25 years ago !

    Thanks Johnny. RIP.
