Hendrix Murdered?

jimi-hendrix-cigarette

Jimi Hendrix – Little Wing

Jimi Hendrix’s former roadie James ‘Tappy’ Wright claims in his new book “Rock Roadie” that Jimi was murdered by his manager Michael Jeffrey in order to claim his life insurance. This confession was made to Wright in 1971, just two years before he was killed in a plane crash.

The manager seemed worried that Hendrix was about to sack him, even though Jimi had recently taken out a life insurance policy worth $2 million naming Jeffrey as beneficiary. Jeffrey supposedly confessed:

“I was in London the night of Jimi’s death and together with some old friends… we went round to Monika’s hotel room, got a handful of pills and stuffed them into his mouth…then poured a few bottles of red wine deep into his windpipe.” more… “I had to do it. Jimi was worth much more to me dead than alive… that son of a bitch was going to leave me. If I lost him, I’d lose everything.”

Hendrix’ body was found at London’s Samarkand Hotel in a room booked by some chick named Monika whom Jimi had known for a few days. The coroner recorded an open verdict, stating cause of death was “barbiturate intoxication and inhalation of vomit”.

If it is true, at least we know why Jeffrey was killed in a plane crash..

cleveland, i apologize

cleveland-lose1
during the years of my youth, it came to light that if i watch my hometown team play any important sports game, odds of them losing will increase exponentially. studies were done and those close to me will confirm this as fact. i decided to leave cleveland… never to return

i was enjoying some fine indian cuisine in Little India Los Angeles yesterday, distancing myself from any sports entertainment, when the restaurants tv turned itself to the cleveland cavs vs. orlando magic playoff game. i could not get away.. my garlic naan, lentil soup and chum chum were already on their way. i finished as fast as i could, able to leave by the end of the first half of the game but the damage had been done.

cleveland will not go on to the finals, nor will they get the chance to lose another championship, nor will LeBron James probably ever play with them again (hova bitches). so to Cleveland, i apologize for destroying another crowning moment. Eric Plunk.. you have met your match.

so, if you are ever in cleveland and are winning something important (it could be possible), and some derranged intuition makes you want to lose. please hit up eric or myself and we will be happy to assist..

Depeche Mode – In Sympathy

how many bands together for 30 years are still making relevant music?

the next official single off Depeche Mode’s 12th studio release Sounds of the Universe is “Peace”. although the mid-tempo “In Sympathy” is what really stands out..

You’re bright, you’re strong
You know your right from wrong
At least to some degree
You’re wise, you’re tough
You’ve heard their lies enough…

getgetget here..

been a fan of the video and their current single “Wrong”.. worth a gander if you haven’t yet

other depeche mode news… recently front man Dave Gahan was rushed to hospital on May 12 after suffering a severe bout of gastroenteritis. Tests revealed a low-grade malignant tumor in Dave’s bladder, which has since been removed. world tour resumes June 8th…
