Jimi Hendrix - The Last
Keith "MuzikMan" Hannaleck
Our love affair with dead rock stars never
ends. In some instances, like in the case of the legendary guitar man Jimi
Hendrix, it continues to grow with each passing year.
Up until this point, before watching this
gripping and thought provoking video, I thought Hendrix died by choking
on his own vomit. It seems there is a lot more to the ending of this man’s
life. A series of events unfolded to form a dark and suspicious veil
over his life and the occurrence of his death.
The music of Hendrix, recognized primarily
through four studio albums, then countless bootlegs and unreleased material,
is a cash cow that has been unrelenting. There seems to be an endless supply
of unreleased material coming from Jimi’s estate over the past few years.
Hendrix must have lived in the studio to have this much in the can. His
popularity has not waned one iota, this DVD may change the views of many
and open up new investigations into his demise.
Jimi loved the rock star life and he was
all about consuming the benefits of being in the public eye. He always
had plenty of sex and drugs, and this scenario was emphasized throughout
the run of this DVD. It seems Hendrix was supportive of the Black Panthers
when they were rising up to create a stir in America. The government did
not want rich rock stars funneling money to a group that threatened the
status quo and the sovereignty of our nation (or so it was perceived at
the time), thus the CIA made their ties with the Mafia’s drug cartel to
learn more about Jimi’s habits and created an ongoing profile of his daily
life. Not one person has stepped forward in over 35 years since Jimi’s
death to claim that they were with him when he died; therefore, the conclusion
reached in a series of interviews with people that knew Jimi is that he
was murdered in order to squelch the Black Panthers rise to power.
I found all of this fascinating and I had
no idea the life of Hendrix was so complicated. Those close to him said
that he knew he was going to die. He was a shooting star that burned out
much too soon; however, it seems as though he set himself up for everything
that happened. Everything about this DVD could be fact or fiction; it is
your choice to make. I promise you this, if watch this you will never look
at this music legend’s life the same, I guarantee it.
