Hendrix Family Wins Legal Battle

The family of guitarist Jimi Hendrix won an injunction at the High Court on Friday barring a New York-based music production company from releasing recordings on which the star performed.

Lawyer Nick Valner, who represented Experience Hendrix, said of the ruling: "This is a great day for the Hendrix family and represents the culmination of years of heavily fought litigation.

"The Hendrix family is determined to uphold the integrity of Jimi's legacy and will have no hesitation in enforcing this injunction wherever and whenever necessary."

My husband and Jimi had the same manager, [Tom Wilson], in New York around 1967-68 when they all played mostly in the west village. Cafe Wha, Cafe-a-Go-Go [where Cream played their first US gig--Jack Bruce and Eric Clapton with huge stacks of Marshall amps in the small club that almost blew the hinges off the place]; the Bitter End, the Fillmore East, Kettle of Fish, and Electric Circus--a huge media event nightly with a lightshow and mimes--and this was outside the place. A lot of hungry musicians got taken advantage of then with a equally hungry manager who's promise of big $$ per week, and a few other perks was enough to make a young man sign almost anything.

It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed. Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
