Purple Haze, 26 November 1967

Earlier this year there was an excellent photography exhibition featuring ground-breaking guitarist and 1960's legend Jimi Hendrix, at the Richard Goodall gallery. This photo of Hendrix is still on display there:

Throughout 1967 Hendrix was in Manchester for six gigs plus a performance of "Purple Haze" on the Simon Dee BBC tv show in March. He played Manchester Odeon twice in April, Belle Vue in May, the University in August and the Palace Theatre on 26th November, 44 years ago today.


  1. A legend indeed.

    Much enjoy his music. Please have a good weekend ahead.

  2. I saw Hendrix at the Isle of Wight in 1970, he was incredible. I had an afghan coat with bells on the bottom!

  3. Impressed you saw him Paul- IoW must have been quite an event? I would have liked to see him but sadly he was before my time... ;-)
