Extract from 'Interview with Jimi Hendrix a few days earlier.
Hugh Curry: Now that Noel’s producing his own group, does this hint at his splitting from ‘The Experience’ or what?
Jimi Hendrix: Not necessarily, the group itself will probably be together, for a while. But, do not forget each individual person wants to do his own thing too!
Hugh Curry: Yes!
Jimi Hendrix: That doesn’t mean you have to break up the group.
Hugh Curry: Right
Jimi Hendrix: So then he is doing his own thing in the meantime and I’d like to do my own thing in the meantime, so would Mitch.
