Purple haze

Concerning the article, Cover versions prove a hit with rock stars (Money Marketing, February 26), I should point out that not only was Jimi Hendrix not "dependent" on drugs but that he did not die as a result of a drug overdose. Like many in the 1960s, Hendrix dabbled in drugs but only on the basis of experimentalism and "fun" – never as an addict. His death was found to be the result of the inhalation of vomit, almost certainly while he was asleep.

Personally, I would have been happy to insure him just to get his signature on the proposal, in the hope that a little of his magic might have rubbed off on me.
