Jimi Hendrix: The Band That Might Have Been by Jack Bogdanski
Such is the level of my blog skills, that I occasionally miss something obvious. An early example was the time one of my posts was picked up by the Fark site. I noticed the numbers leaping upwards but I had no idea why. I even had a couple of posts imploring visitors to explain what was going on. Through that experience I can now use the data options, which allowed me to track one visit to Brazil and another to Slovenia yesterday. What a thrill. On a ham-radio level blogging is the best.
A few entrys down I posted my musical trio's one and only promo shot and I finished by wondering if Jimi Hendrix would have ever gotten in a raft for a publicity shot on the Willamette. I asked about our effort, “Where’s the dignity?” Jack Bogdanski replied, “I dunno.” Which I took to mean, “Yes, the picture was a little undignified.” Instead as my sister pointed out this morning, you can click on it, and get Jack’s real answer to the idea of Jimi Hendrix on the Willamette. Jimi was right up the road in Seattle, so I guess if I had grown up there we might have met. But I don’t think he would be playing bass, while I was the guitarist in the group. That part is a stretch. Great effort, Jack. Sorry I didn’t pick up on it sooner.
