We all seem to, in today’s modern society, gravitate to the tabloid stories. I for one, try my best to ignore this form of journalism, but it does make one wonder about this particular story. I realize I’m adding to it’s buzz on-line, but this story caused me to react to this type hype that I am referring to above.
Was Jimi Hendrix murdered my his manager? Well I’m not sure because I wasn’t there when it happened.
James “Tappy” Wright a roadie for Jimi, claims that Michael Jeffrey, Jimi’s former manager “drunkenly confessed to killing” Hendrix. He reportedly says that he killed him “by stuffing pills into his mouth and washing them down with several bottles of red wine.”
The latest information is from a new book called Rock Roadie. Why did he wait so long to bring this to anybodies attention?
It’s definitely plausible: Michael Jeffrey “has always been a controversial figure,” and he’s “been accused by members of the Animals and Jimi Hendrix’s family of cheating them of earnings.”
If this is true, should there be a formal investigation to this tragedy? Should we just leave it along? Hasn’t the Hendrix family suffered enough? Which conspiracy formula do you subscribe to?
So my question to you, my great readership is, do we really care about this form of newz/entertainment if you can actually call it that?
Keep on Jammin’
