    There was a Hendrix sex tape for sale on Ebay quite awhile back. I believe in the description it said the quality of the film was dark and fuzzy and that the seller wasn't exactly convinced it was Hendrix but was told by the person they got it from that it was. I find it funny that the tape was on Ebay so long ago and suddenly it's all over the news. My local news station even covered it. They said it was an unconfirmed Hendrix sex tape. Since I'm a huge fan, I will buy it just to make my own determination. I think I will be able to tell.

    I'm thinking someone on the "inside" of that adult film company copied it and put it on ebay for some extra pocket money OR the adult film company bought it off of ebay, packaged it and hired a PR firm. Probably the latter, knowing how sleazy some people are. Hopefully it won't cost an arm and a leg or I'll pass. I'm just awfully curious. I believe the ebay auction was for a grand or few.

    Well it sounds like the Hendrix family is going to pursue it in court. One of their representatives said the company that now owns the tape hasn't yet dealt with the fact that Experience Hendrix owns Jimi's likeness.

    And that fucking skank Janie, "sorry I can't stand her" will have this in court in no time I am sure.

    So if you want a copy of the tape get it fast! I bet within 4 weeks we will some action on Experience Hendrix's side?

    From the Hendrix estate about the tape:

    “We view the release as nothing more than a callous attempt to trade on the image and reputation of a deceased artist who is unable to defend himself against such an outrageous and baseless assertion."

    I honestly think Hendrix would be more pleased with the sex tape then having his music used in commericals and his likeness being sold as energy drinks and on golf balls.

    The Hendrix estate has nerve to say that when Janie uses Hendrix's money as her own personal ATM as told in the court trial when Leon tried to get control of Hendrix's estate.

    Jimi's people released a statement today saying that it was NOT Jimi in the tape - altho the folks at Vivid says it is.

    I'll probably get a peek at it. I'm pretty sure it will show up somewhere for free eventually to download...

    Well there will probably always be a doubt if it is or isn't. I am not surprised with Experience Hendrix saying it isn't. They have no money to gain. Now if Janie was the one selling it "heaven forbid" you can bet money they would say it is Hendrix.

    Well let me know what you think I have no desire to see jimi having sex.

    San Francisco Honda is in the building that used to put on all the copncerts. Janis and Jimi signed the wall in that place and many others too. They aretalking about tearing the place down or remoleling it but the city says they have to take al;l the cement blocks that were signed and give them to the city so the can be shown at some time. The public cannot see them because it is in an old stair case. I worked there for a while and still have friends there. Maybe I can try to get some pictures of all the stuff they wrote on the walls. I will try and then get some copies made.

    just saw a clip of the sex tape - it looks fake to me.
    whoever he is, he seems to be having a good time.

    from the official Jimi website:
    We, Experience Hendrix, the family company of Jimi Hendrix are aware of the release of the adult videotape which alleges to contain illicit footage of Jimi Hendrix. We strongly dispute the claimed authenticity and affirmatively state that Experience Hendrix is neither involved in, nor have we authorized the distribution of this film. Further, we deplore this obvious exploitation of Jimi Hendrix. We view the release as nothing more than a callous attempt to trade on the image and reputation of a deceased artist who is unable to defend himself against such an outrageous and baseless assertion. We are highly offended by the disgraceful portrayal.

    While we do not wish to call undue attention to this desecration, we reserve all rights and remedies under the law to protect the character and legacy of Jimi Hendrix with which we have been charged and legally possess.

    apparently janie hates the exploitation of Jimi... uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh........ sorry my brain hurts from that

    Another Janie hater...Love it!

    I love how she had the board vote for all their house mortgages to be paid off a few years back when Experience Hendrix was running in the red.

    If it wasn't for Jimi she would be at dollar cuts where she belongs!

    I still think she tricked Al into the will signed for her to get control of his estate?


    Oh yeah Janie I am sure Jimi would approve of this item to exploit his image? "Hendrix Energy drink."

    From Leon Hendrix Jimi's Real brother:


    “The truly sick joke is Janie Hendrix misleading the public by representing her companies as the Hendrix family. Janie only met Jimi once when she was nine years old and she has no blood relation to Jimi or me. The fact is, there is only one person related to Jimi and me in her company while a large number of our blood relatives live in reduced circumstances and near squalor in the low income sections of Seattle.”

    Also did anyone notice she signs the last night Hendrix like Jimi did now?

    I get the feeling the Hendrix sex tape is about as legit as the Marilyn sex tape they had a month or so ago!

    I question who is going on about such sordid stuff of such great artists! Thats too predictable to me!

    I work with dealers in art and I would guess its a hoax and all about building $$$ and interest in the real things that may come up!

    I wonder if the tape was possibly recently made? If the tape is fake why would they have used a fake Hendrix and done it in the 1960's? Not like any value or anything at that time.

    The little bit I have seen Hendrix looks like he is on a date rape drug! LOL

    I just called the local sex shop and the guy said he hasn't heard anything about it. He said Vivid releases their list on Wednesday and the movies come out on Thursday. He said they would definitely be stocking it if it comes out. If Janie files an injunction, nobody will get it. What they need to do is rename it to "Hey Joey Does Purple Hazzie" or something. And you don't need Janie's permission to have someone who resembles Hendrix on the cover. If her company is in the red, she may want to reconsider, like Kim Kardashian did once she found out how much money was to be had. If she belongs to one of those whacko churches, they may ex-communicate her if she allows the tape to be released for a cut.

    Jimi was known to film all his sexual conqests. I guess he would film them waving goodbye as they were leaving the hotel or wherever they got it on at?

    But those films were stolen I think in 1968? Now that would be interesting to see...

    apparently, Leon claims that that is not Jimi in the tape, but.... who knows


    also i was perusing the official Jimi website (yeah the one run by Janie) and i noticed in the biography section that Jimi was born but um, indicates no mother.... the bio goes on to discuss Al, his dad... who i guess in Janie's mind probably gave birth to Jimi.... i wonder what it is like where she lives....
    okay enough of my Janie ranting...

    Good ole Janie. They found Jimi's moms grave but Janie refused to move her to the family plot. But Janie had her mom interred there...bitch!

    What does she have against Jimi's mom?

    Jimi Hendrix Sex Tape

    I wanted to make a new thread because I think this deserves it, even though it's about porno, I hope ya'll are open minded enough to realize it's really more about history and a rare find despite the nature of the find...

    I bought and just finished viewing the video. Do I think it's Hendrix? Well there is one scene that I do believe IS Hendrix. There are four or five separate scenes, some of which show a face with a body. There is one scene that shows his face and it's hard for me to believe it's him because it looks like the guy is dead... he literally doesn't move a muscle the whole scene and the eyebrows look more like catapillars. Jimi's eyebrows weren't that bad, but maybe it was just bad lighting. The scene that looks like his face is an up close scene.

    This video features Pamela De Barres and Cynthia Plaster Caster offering commentary. Cynthia seems to think this is Jimi in the latter part of his life, but I don't agree because I think Jimi had skin problems and other facial hair at that point and this guy has very clear clear skin with no facial hair except the thin moustache. Danny maybe you can help clarify this. The guy is also wearing a headband that is smallish and more of a geometric design with primary colors, no paisly purples and golds. Again, not very Hendrix-like. Also, his hair is longish whereas in the latter part of his life, Hendrix was wearing his hair rather short in comparison. Regardless, just because Cynthia made this statement and I don't agree with her, doesn't make me think it's not Hendrix in that one scene. There are too many similar facial features that this guy would have to be Jimi's twin were it not Jimi himself.

    Did anyone else buy this? It was released May 6th, about a week after I posted my last message in the Hendrix forum, which was when I had called the porn shop about the release date and they knew nothing about it! LOL!!

    How much was the video? Do you feel you wasted your money?

    I'd be poking around the internet to find a free download somewhere...

    A friend bought one and I saw parts of his. I agree with you. There was a scene or two where it could have been Jimi but IMO it's up for debate. aside from shots not being direct or clear of course the film itself was not great quality. I have never had high regard for Cynthia Plaster but I always have for Pamela Des Barres.
    Wanna see my grandkids?

    It was $39.99. I don't feel I wasted my money mostly because I'm a bit of a "collector" when it comes to oddball things like that. I have a few friends that are Hendrix fans. I'm thinking about working up the nerve to ask them if they want to see his sex tape LOL!!

    I was checking out things like nail polish color and think the footage is from the era. Have no idea what stag films looked like back then, but they do have a home video quality about them. As in only one camera angle, like on a tripod, home video quality. I can imagine someone would think it was great fun to pose as Hendrix in a stag film and it ends up getting mixed up in somebody's memorabilia collection somehow.

    This is what the back of the DVD box says:

    It all started with a carton at an auction... In 2007, a collector of rock memorabilia bought a carton of vintage records, posters, concert ephemera and an old film reel at an auction in Europe. When he got home he examined the contents and saw the 8mm film labeled "Black Man." He borrowed a projector and discovered the unbelievable truth: THe man was Jimi Hendrix. After authenticating the image as best he could, the collector found Vivid and a vast investigation was launched. A group of Hendrix experts and historians directed Vivid to two girls who knew the artist intimately: Cynthia "Plaster Caster," who personally cast Jimi's penis in plaster, along with Pamela Des Barres, the world famous 'supergroupie.' 'No doubt about it,' Cynthia said, 'that's his d*ck and I should know.' Pamela concurred, commenting 'This footage proves Jimi was fabulous in bed and really pleased his partner.' Shot 40 years ago and verified authentic by a panel of experts, Jimi Hendrix: The Sex Tape is a historical archive of monumental importance to both the adult and rock worlds."

    Okay, so anyway... panel of experts. Hhmmm. Also, the collector guy's ebay auction where he was trying to sell the tape for $2,000 or more (I wish I would have bookmarked that page) stated in his description that someone told him it was Hendrix but he wasn't sure and couldn't really tell himself. Maybe he was just covering his a*s by saying that, but the above description sounds to me more like he was totally convinced from the get go that it was Hendrix. I guess it doesn't really matter what you say when you're trying to make money off of something. As far as Cynthia's comments verifying it was Jimi's d*ck, well... as if you would really remember and near as I know, they're not all that distinguishable, particularly in those type of shots. So much hype naturally makes me just a bit sceptical.

    So it's in color, no sound? What goes on in the tape? You don't have to give us detailed info... Is it just Hendrix having sex? Any idea who the female is? I would think finding out who the female party in the tape is would have a lot to do with "authenticating" it.

    Like Karma, I would tend to believe Pamela (though she never had sex with him, that I know of. I thought she was with Noel Redding). Cynthia Plaster Caster. meh. I have problems with someone saying that they can give positive ID to a person's "member".

    Also, I would want to know what else the collector bought in the memorabilia lot, to see if it somehow tied into once belonging to someone close to Hendrix.

    Jimi Hendrix "NEW" album

    OMFG... {thud}

    Jimi Hendrix, 1970 (Central Press/File, Getty Images)



    A lost album Jimi Hendrix recorded with rocker Stephen Stills has been discovered more than 30 years after it was recorded.

    Stills recently found the recording among a stack of material he taped during the 1970s, and his Crosby, Stills and Nash bandmate Graham Nash is helping him prepare it for release.

    Nash tells the Las Vegas Sun, "He has an enormous history of recording. In the '70s, he was a recording fool. He just found a bloody album he made with (Jimi) Hendrix."
    "'Oh yeah, I forgot that.' We've got to listen to that... I want to listen to every track he ever recorded in case he recorded with Al Jolson.'"


    I love that photo, he had a great smile.

    Well, since Stephen Stills is still alive and owns the recordings, all greedy Janie can do is have her hand out and expect her her "cut" from whatever profits come from the sales.

    Yeah but she always spouts off she owns his likeness! But you are right probably not alot she can do!

    I could not find anything online about the supposed recordings though? I know Jimi played on a song On Stephen Stills album in early 1970.

    Stephen Stills was slated to be bass player when Billy Cox got sick but they could not find Stephen to ask him.

    Stills forgot he made an album with Hendrix????
    Perhaps he spent a little too much time with Crosby back in the day…

    I found several links on a yahoo search. Try this "lost jimi hendrix album stills" oh, maybe you meant documented as in historical information. I'll try to remember to look through Electric Gypsy this weekend.

    I used to collect Hendrix albums until I bought one that turned out to be a phoney. Hendrix was not even on the record and the guy who sold the albums was actually prosecuted.

    Looks like Janie's going to control the release of the Stills Hendrix album. Looks like it's definitely legit also. This article mentions some previously released collaborations. I thought I remembered reading something about Stills and Hendrix recording together. Just can't remember which book I read it in... I thought it an odd pairing, but probably not for the era. Guess I'm not enough of a fan to buy an album with a collaboration on one or two tracks, a whole album tracks... okay.

    Hey Janie... how 'bout releasing a whole album of Jimi's collaborations with other famous musicians... like the Jim Morrison jam.

    ITs not really a bad book. I do hate the fact the CD that is included 90% of it has already been released!!

    Mitch Mitchell sold Janie a few years back some real priceless recordings of Jimi's called "Black Gold."

    Of course the bitch keeps sitting on the tapes...

Guess I'm not enough of a fan to buy an album with a collaboration on one or two tracks, a whole album tracks... okay.

    Hey Janie... how 'bout releasing a whole album of Jimi's collaborations with other famous musicians... like the Jim Morrison jam.

    It sounds like Stephen is working with Janie by choice...lets hope?

    I just can't believe in the three years Hendrix was alive all the fucking music the guy recorded!?

    When did he eat or sleep? Sad to wonder what gems we lost when he died?

    Dude... you know as well as I do, Hendrix was alive longer than 3 years!! ~ I know what you mean, the three years that he was mega famous 1967-1970. Don't forget, his career started waaaayyyy before that. Even if much of the highly sought after "lost" recordings were made within those three years, you know there were years prior to '67 where he was workin on his chops. There's gotta be recordings of that stuff also. If anyone remembers. Once he became famous in the states and Jeffries got a hold of him, there was little time for recording because of the constant touring. But you know he did, it's out there and bits and pieces keep leaking out over time. There was a portable multi track tape recorder on ebay awhile back, circa 1970. Made me wonder if it was like one Jimi hauled around. I almost bought it... for grins. I don't know why people sit on stuff. When he died people ransacked his apartments and took whatever they could get. He would leave tapes here and there, accidentally... too stoned and forgot. All these old musicians these days claim to having boxes of old tapes and movies in storage. Dig them out man, make some money, they know all us boomers would buy that shit up in a New York minute. I think they don't want to take the time to go through all of it and they don't trust anyone else to do it.

    Has anyone here bought any Dagger Records recordings? The website has some downloads in .RAM version, which I HATE. Why can't they put MP3s up? Who the heck are these people that run this stuff anyway? Lame.

    I did... It was totally the living making money off the dead. There was about 20 seconds of video that looked like it might actually be Hendrix. I prolly should have rented it, but figured it might make a good conversation piece some day. Guess you'd have to be pretty bored to bust something like that out. At that point, may as well say G'night John Boy.

    Sold!


    People are willing to pay big bucks for old Jimi Hendrix memorabilia.
    The first guitar that Hendrix ever burned on stage just sold at an auction in London yesterday for $495,000!
    It was his 1965 Fender Stratocaster guitar that he torched after his performance in 1967 at London's Finsbury Astoria.
    Unfortunately for him, Hendrix had to be taken to the hospital afterward and treated for minor hand injuries.
    The director of acquisitions, Ted Owen, at the Fame Bureua rock memorabilia firm which organized the sale described Hendrix's burning of the guitar as "a watershed in live performance."
    Adding, "He raised the bar of what could be expected and paved the way for a series of imitations and pastiche that exist to this day."
    As for the guitar, after the torching it was then taken to the offices of Hendrix's aide, Tony Garland.
    The guitar was later kept in the garage of Garland's parents' home in southern England.
    It wasn't until last year that Garland's nephew found the guitar.

    Thanks so much for posting this. I saw on the news that this guitar was going to be up for auction. Also recall reading that his handlers were mighty P.O'd that he burned that expensive guitar. However, they couldn't stay mad for long because the audience went wild when he torched it. Amazing it was "found" just last year. Being a big fan, it's hard for me to imagine anyone with any ties to Hendrix wouldn't be combing through everything looking for stuff.

    I don't understand the hoopla in the quote about raising the bar and being a watershed for live performance. Jerry Lee Lewis and The Who were tearing up equipment before this performance. Perhaps they were referencing the use of fire, which I believe, until that point, no other artist had employed the use of. ??

    You are right. In fact Keith Moon had three 'Pictures of Lily' Premier drum kits made specially stronger using birch so as to take the punishment at the end of the gig. They were made in 1967 though the drum destroying stunt started before that.

    By the way, the Hendrix guitar that was auctioned the other day plays well even though being burnt. It was torched in 1967. Maybe Jimi was on the Who's 'smash em up bandwagon'?

    This may be illegal, but I cant buy anything that is put out by Janie i will download everything pirated... just cant stand the thought of lining her pockets.. I just have such a dislike for that lying snake.

    I read Sharon Lawrences book Loved it! I sent my sister to Jimis 'grave' and she smoked a joint with him! I have pictures of her there since i wasnt in WA with her. I do want to go there and plant him some strawberries or just take him a basket of them since they are his favorite. He seemed so genuine hard knock kid, i think thats why we love him. Well... that and his sexy guitar..

    And that bitch holds the holy grail of Jimi's music "Black Gold." I could kick Mitch Mitchell for selling the skank it!

    This is a MUST if she ever releases it?

    Never heard how much he sold it for? I know Noel had his falling outs with Janie!

    Yeah Mitch is the one who said he would never sell the white Strat Hendrix played at Woodstock...even if he was starving. And yep he sold it years ago for I think hundred thousand! I bet it would go for at least half a million now.

    The shitty part is Hendrix fans aren't getting any younger and Janie should be putting out good Hendrix stuff. Of course we know all of Janies motives are about money though.

    They did do a GOOD job on Hendrix at Montery...well Janie didn't do anything just got it released...I hate how she puts producer on all of Jimi's records. can you say EGO??
