“Music is getting too heavy,” said Hendrix a week before his death


Here’s a cool animated video that was posted on YouTube yesterday by PBS Digital Studios.

It features a snippet of Jimi Hendrix’s final interview, conducted by music journalist and press agent Keith Altham exactly one week before the guitar legend’s drug-related death on Sept. 18, 1970.

I like the part at the beginning where, after being asked about how he’s doing money-wise, Jimi talks about the way he’d like to live–in a house that is basically a big swimming pool, so he could swim from one room to another.

Jimi just seemed like a big kid, didn’t he? A big, sweet, talented-as-fuck kid.
