‘Scuse Me While I Kiss The Sky’ – THE JIMI HENDRIX EXPERIENCE Released ‘PURPLE HAZE’ 56 Years Ago Today

Great 7″ singles from the past

17 March 2023

On 17 March 1967, this day 56 years ago the late genial guitar hero
(27 Nov 1942 – 18 Sept 1970) JIMI HENDRIX and his experienced tandem,
bassist Noel Redding and drummer Mitch Mitchell released their second
single, the rad classic called PURPLE HAZE.

Hendrix about the song: “The song we had named ‘Purple Haze’ had about a thousand, thousand words. I had it all written out. It was about going through, through this land. This mythical land, because that’s what I like to do is write a lot of mythical scenes. You know,
like the history of the wars on Neptune.”

“Purple haze all in my brain
Lately things just don’t seem the same
Actin’ funny but I don’t know why
‘Scuse me while I kiss the sky”

Studio version.

Crazy Couple ROBERT FRIPP & TOYAH Keeps On Rocking And Covering At Home

9 February 2021

Robert Fripp (best know as member of legendary prog rock band King Crimson)
and his equally famous British wife TOYAH WILLCOX (8 top 40 hits and over more
than 20 LPs) are entertaining us every week, for a while now, with covering classic

Last week they fabricated a rambling cover of Joan Jett’s I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll, and
now they show their love for the late great guitar genius Jimi Hendrix. The couple’s rendition of his awesome 1967 killer Purple Haze is – as we are already used to by
now – crazy, creaking and squeaking, screamy and noisy, and big fun to watch.
