The King Mojo gig very nearly didn't happen. Hendrix had come to Britain only a few months before in September 1966, put 'The Experience' together, and had started touring in December.
The previous night they had played Manchester, a disastrous event which had culminated in a drugs bust by Manchester Police. During the fracas, bassist Noel Redding was allegedly hung on a peg by officers and was rumoured to have broken a couple of ribs. (The officers in question were later sacked over this).
Peter Stringfellow, King Mojo's founder and proprietor, later told how his club was raided after a tip off by Manchester police prior to the Hendrix gig. The inexperienced police, unsure what to do, sent the fire brigade round to The Mojo. One fireman offensively and aggressively asked Jimi where the drugs were. Hendrix calmly replied, 'No drugs here, man'. The fire brigade searched and couldn't find anything. Stringfellow insisted they apologised to Jimi. 'Hey, cool man,' Hendrix replied, lighting up a very large joint.
The gig went ahead. The Jimi Hendrix Experience played to an audience of 416. The set included their new unrecorded song, 'Purple Haze', and 'Wild Thing' which they trademark segued into 'God Save The Queen'.
And what was the fee for this troublesome gig? A mere £50, shared between the band.
