jimi hendrix: trivia tapes on Electric Ladyland

rock on: “hendrix got into trouble with the law twice for riding in stolen cars. he was given a choice between spending two years in prison or joining the army. hendrix chose the latter and enlisted on may 31, 1961. after completing basic training, he was assigned to the 101st airborne division in kentucky. his commanding officers and fellow soldiers considered him to be a sub-par soldier: he slept while on duty, had little regard for regulations, required constant supervision, and showed no skill as a marksman.” my kinda guy. by dd
