On this day, the 40th anniversary of Jimi Hendrix' death, the time is right to quote this story told by Gene Parsons :
"One night when we were playing at The Whiskey and we were in the dressing room, this really well dressed black man wearing a feather in his hat walks in and says "Are You Clarence White? And Clarence says "Yeah". The fellow adds: "I've been listening to you for years, and you're one of my favorite players". So Clarence says, "Wow, thanks a lot, and what did you say your name was?" The fellow says, "I'm Jimi Hendrix"
