    People who need to be interviewed about Jimi (before its too late!)

    Who are some still living people who played with Jimi or were otherwise associated with him but haven't been interviewed yet? I tracked down Joey Dee myself and he was happy to share his memories (although he did say he wanted to save some things for a book he was writing.) I also contacted Jimmy McCarty hoping to ask about "Jimi/Jimmy Jam" only to find it was the "wrong" Jim McCarty! I've spoken to Bill Rich, but should do it again with more preparation on my part. Any other ideas?

    Eric Barrett! He hasn't spoken since the 70s I think. I was in touch with his nephew a few years ago and he expressly said Eric valued his privacy above all else. David Pearcy met him at one point years ago and reported that Eric was writing a book. That never eventuated it seems. David Kramer to the best of my knowledge has not had any luck getting an interview despite trying. It would be a hell of a shame to miss out on hearing Eric's memories. All we have that I know of his the Chris Welsh interview for the book from the 70's and his filmed interview for the 73 A Film About Jimi Hendrix. It was good to see the extended sections in the EH re-release.

    Luckily Gerry Stickles has spoken a reasonable amount but he is in very bad health I think so we might have heard all we can from him already.

    I'd also love to hear extended interviews with Trixie Sullivan. Not much from is out there and she would have a wealth of memories!

    Any chance you might share them with us at CTT?

    I'm in touch with Eric for several years now. He also talked about his book but it was long time ago and I never bothered him about it since !

    I may be stating the obvious but more interviews with Billy would be good. Juma as well.
