(tape rewinding)
(rock guitar)
[Keith] Do you feel personally
that you've got enough money now
to live comfortably?
- [Jimi] I don't think so, not the way I'd like to live.
Because like I want to get up in the morning
and just roll over in my bed into an indoor swimming pool.
And then swim to the breakfast table,
you know come up for air and get maybe a drink
of orange juice or something like that.
Then it's from the chair into the swimming pool
and swim into the bathroom.
Go and shave and whatever.
- [Keith] You don't want to live just comfortably,
you want live luxuriously?
- [Jimi] No is that luxurious (laughs).
I was thinking about a tent maybe
overhanging a mountain stream.
(rock guitar)
- [Keith] It does appear doesn't it,
the days of the baubles and bangles and the freaky hairstyle
have all disappeared.
- [Jimi] Yeah but see everybody goes through
those stages the first time around
and you wear all these different things, you know.
I just did that cause like I felt like I was being too loud
or something.
Cause my nature just changes, you know.
I don't want it to be this only hyped up on
all the visual thing, you know.
I wanted the people to like listen too.
I don't know if they were or not though.
It started to bring me down a little bit
so I just started cutting hair and that started
the rings disappearing one by one. (laughs)
(rock guitar)
One time I said, maybe I should burn a guitar tonight.
(laughs) Smash a guitar or something like that.
And they says yeah, yeah.
I said you really think I should.
The said, yeah that'd be cool.
So okay.
So like I just worked up enough anger
so that I could do it.
But like I didn't know it was anger
tell they told me that it was.
You know like with destruction and all that.
But I believe everybody should have a room
where they can get rid of all their releases,
where do they can do their releases at.
So my room was a stage (laughs).
(rock guitar)
- [Keith] I mean it has been said of you
that you invented psychedelic music
and that-
- [Jimi] A mad scientist it was.
But the way I write things, I just write them
with a clash between reality and fantasy mostly.
You have to use fantasy in order to show
different sides of reality.
That's how it can bend.
As a word reality is nothing but each individual's
own way of thinking.
And then the establishment grabs a big piece of that.
You know all I write is that what I feel that's all.
I don't really round it off too good.
I just keep it almost naked almost, you know.
And like when we go to play, you know,
you're flipping around and flashing around
and everything.
And then they're just seeing nothing
but their eyes see you know.
Forget about their ears.
So like, well I was trying to do too many things
at the same time, which is my nature, you know.
I just hate to be in one corner.
I hate to be put as only a guitar player
or only as a songwriter.
Or only as tap dancer or something like this (laughs).
(rock guitar)
- [Keith] I think certain people think of your music
essentially as angry music, as-
- [Jimi] No.
- [ Keith] As raging against perhaps
the establishment principles.
- [Jimi] Oh, it's not raging against it.
If it was up to me there would be no such thing
as the establishment, you know.
Well see it's nothing but blues
that's all I'm singing about.
Today's blues.
- [Keith] Do you have any politics in fact yourself?
- [Jimi] Not really.
I was getting ready to get into all that,
but like I mean you know everybody goes through
that stages too (laughs).
I'm just, it all comes out in the music most of the time.
We have this one song called "Straight Ahead."
And it just says, like, power to the people,
freedom to the soul.
Pass it on to the young and old.
♫ Gimme all the passion ♫
- [Jimi] We don't give a damn if your hair
is short or long.
Communication is coming on strong.
And all this kind of stuff, you know.
♫ I don't give a damn, baby
♫ If your hair is short or long ♫
- [Keith] What are the things that you would like
to see change?
- [Jimi] Oh, I don't know.
More color in the streets probably.
I mean (laughs) I really don't know.
If there's a new idea, a new invention
or a new gas, or a new whatever you know.
It should be brought at least into the open
instead of keep carrying these same old burdens
around with you.
And you have to be a freak in order to be different.
And even freaks they're very prejudiced.
You have to have your hair long
and talk at a certain way in order to be with them.
In order to be the other people,
you have to have hair short and wear ties.
So we're trying to make a third world happen,
you know what I mean?
(rock guitar)
There's too many heavy songs out nowadays.
Music is getting too heavy,
almost to the state of unbearable.
I have this one little saying,
when things get too heavy just call me helium,
the lightest known gas to man (laughs).
♫ Come on baby let the good times roll
♫ Yeah baby, let the good times roll ♫
- [Keith] You talk quite a bit about
audio visual importance too.
About the importance of having a film
with your music.
Now are you thinking in terms of the days
when we can fit a cassette into the side
of our television and play music
and a film together or, I mean-
- [Jimi] Yeah, well alot of people are making more money
than they ever had nowadays.
So when they get their flat they can,
they always find themselves with an extra room.
So like this whole room could be like the total
audio visual environment.
I mean they could go in there, and you know just lay back
and the whole thing just blossoms out with this color
and sound type of scene, you know.
You can go in here and just sort of like
jingle out your nerves or something, you know.
(rock guitar)
