Hendrix and The Spook
Hendrix and The Spook 1 x 90
As Jimmy James sat on the runway, waiting to take off from New York on September 24th 1966 he turns to his travelling companion and said “If I am going to England I want to meet Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page” “No worries there son, I know them both very well” answered Chas Chandler the bass player of British band The Animals. As the wheels of the Pan Am flight left the ground on its way to London, Jimmy James, who would soon revert to his original surname of Hendrix, had no idea that his other travelling companion, a mysterious suited man wearing dark glasses, would become embroiled in a Jimi Hendrix murder enquiry four years later.
Fifty years on, The Animals and Jimi Hendrix not only remain top box office, the cause of Jimi’s death still remains an open verdict. No matter how imaginative the many stories that surround his death one fact is evident; none of the authors were actually there. The open verdict of Jimi’s death on September 18th 1970, does not rule out murder, neither does it rule out suicide. This film reveals, with first hand testimony and new evidence uncovers the likely murderer of Hendrix as well as the secret history of Jimi’s manager, British spy Mike Jeffery.
