I just saw a friend of Jimi Hendrix’ explain why he died, and the only thing I understand from it is that there were good drugs in the ’60s.
There’s two sockets where you can go into. One socket is death and one socket is the socket to live, you know. This is how I always felt. I think they call that a alpha jerk. You can get an alpha jerk.This is when you’ve felt as though.”Oh, wow, I’m goin’ into the wrong hole here. And you really feel funny. You feel like that possibly is the hole to die. And the other side is the side to sleep and get into your subconscious and sleep, which is what we normally go into I believe that Jimi possibly could’ve went into, got into his alpha-jerk feel and it kind of felt groovy to him because he was high, slightly high, and he said: “Damn, you know, I’m Jimi Hendrix. I wonder if I can die?” You know? And the alpha jerk came on him and he said:”Fuck it, let me try the alpha.”And slipped on out. You know?
