Blue McCartney Experience: The Jimi Hendrix, Paul McCartney and Miles Davis-Supergroup that never was…

Im Hardrock Café in Prag hängt ein Telegram von Jimi Hendrix, Miles Davis und Tony Williams an Paul McCartney, die den Beatle für die Aufnahme einer Platte haben wollten. Wäre wahrscheinlich die interessanteste Supergroup aller Zeiten geworden, kam aber leider nie zustande.

The telegram, sent on October 22 1969, read: “We are recording and (sic) LP together this weekend. How about coming in to play bass stop call Alan Douglas 212-5812212. Peace Jimi Hendrix Miles Davis Tony Williams.”

However, fate intervened and Beatles aide Peter Brown replied telling Douglas that McCartney was in holiday in Scotland and would not be back for another two weeks. The session never took place and Hendrix would die of a drugs overdose around 11 months later, on September 18, 1970.
