Subject: Jim Hendrix, Johnny Hallyday and a long wait

I came across this story in my local paper in France and couldn't resist blogging on it.

http://www.francesalut.com/2011/05/jimi-hendrixs-spotty-face-johnny-hallyday-and

Essentially, Jimi's newly formed Experience was supporting Johnny Hallyday in France in 1966. Johnny fan wants autograph on the sleeve of his new single, looks in the usual post-gig haunt of musicians and finds "only" Hendrix and entourage, all of whom sign. Jimi wanted a kiss in return but was deemed too spotty by la jeune francaise.

The idea of Jimi signing a Johnny Hallyday record appealed so much to the acknowledged French expert on all things Hendrix that he arranged for Johnny to sign it , too, on TV last night, 45 years on.

Abject apologies for the subject field blunder. It was worse at first, coming out - my techie incompetence again - as the single letter A. Jim for Jimi was a typo.
    All fixed -moderators-
