Yes, when we first met we were selling old clothes in an old stall to make a living, but we also started to sell Freddie’s art work from college. He had portfolios of Hendrix prints, quite stunning some of them. Three years of his works, it kept ourselves alive while we organised the band. I’d like to get them back, they must be scattered all over west London. We were working on the stall the day Hendrix died when we heard the news on the radio. We packed up the stall and went home in mourning. Besides graphics, Freddie’s gift lies in the piano. That he does have a natural talent for. He’s got an incredible knowledge of chord structures. I remember moving an old upright piano into his flat and he just started banging away on it all day and all night’.
