Night Music: Jimi Hendrix Experience, “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band”

A movie about Jimi Hendrix came out this past week, and doesn’t seem to be making a lot of noise. It was written and directed by John Ridley, who wrote 12 Years a Slave, but was made without the cooperation of the Hendrix heirs, and they withheld song rights.

I haven’t seen it, so no comment on how you make a Hendrix in 1967 movie without Purple Haze, but I have seen this clip of a show in London when Hendrix and the Experience started the show with Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, notable because John Lennon and Paul McCartney were sitting in the front row.
