Hendrix home movies in new documentary
A new two-hour Jimi Hendrix documentary includes home videos made by the guitar icon himself along with footage shot during his last-ever show just 12 days before he died.
Hear My Train A Comin’ is released in November and makes up part of the celebrations for what would have been his 70th birthday year.
The film also features recently-discovered clips from Hendrix’s appearance at the Miami Pop Festival in 1968, which will also go on sale in November.
His sister Janie says: “Hear my Train a Comin‘ is an in-depth look at the life and legacy of Jimi in his own words, as well as the words and memories of those that knew him well and were close to him. His impression on the world through his genius, music and talent continue to magically touch the lives of ensuing generations.”
Interviews include Paul McCartney, Noel Redding, Mitch Mitchell, Billy Cox, Steve Winwood, Vernon Reid, Billy Gibbons and Dweezil Zappa.
The Hear My Train A Comin’ DVD and Jimi Hendrix Experience: Miami Pop Festival CD both his shelves on November 4. The musician would have been 70 on November 27.
