ABC Cinema – 1977

The film "Rainbow Bridge" featuring Soul Brother Number 2, James Marshall Hendrix, which was on at the now defunct Gatley Cinema circa '77; the only time I recall it ever being shown.Of course we only went 'cos Jimi was in it but as it turned out he was only in the last 10 minutes or so and the rest of it was a documentary type film of typical self indulgent '60's hippie drivel.If you ever get a chance to see it don't! though it did have a few inadvertently funny bits as I recall.Still love Jimi though, especially the Band of Gypsies stuff.There was the apparent unrecorded jam session he did one night in London with Miles Davis; the stuff of legends.
Wonder if he ever had a night out in M/c....... down The Twisted Wheel perhaps....?
