At least it was his own skin flute he played.

Jimi Hendrix, Who Would Have Been 70 Today, Was A Terrible Solider Obsessed With His Guitar


1) Great job, Mr. Editing Guy.

2) A rock-n-roll guy wasn't a perfect fit in the military? Whodathunkit?

Big deal. He did it at Woodstock too. Oh, you mean FOR REAL.

This is quite the opposite to another "celebrity", Mr. Rogers, the children's show host. He was by all accounts a stone cold killer - a sniper in Korea. He had to wear long sleeve shirts and his trademark blue sweater to hid all his Marine Corp tats.

Hell, that show at Monterey Pop looked like he was full on farking his guitar. Before burning it, that is.

I was going to make an indignant post about Jethro Tull and how the flute isn't incompatible with Rock, questioning subby's musical tastes...

..Then I read the article.

Happy 70th, Jimi!

No, he wasn't, and didn't

Private Joker: What was the matter with him?
Private Cowboy: He was jerkin' off ten times a day.
Private Eightball: No shiat. At least ten times a day.
Private Cowboy: Last week he was sent down to Da Nang to see the Navy head shrinker, and the crazy farker starts jerking off in the waiting room. Instant Section Eight. He was just waiting for his papers to clear division.

Corporal "Stitch" Jones was a Marine Core Soldier, thank you very much.

Anyway, didn't he decide to give up rock and roll and get serious about a military career after his harrowing combat experience in Macho Grande Grenada?

Yea, the stern but lovable S Sgt "Gunny" Highway helped him become the great warrior we all knew he could be.

Or I'm just that much of a Tull fan and secretly hoped that Hendrix did get in trouble for playing the musical instrument flute as it adds to the legitimacy of flutes in rock bands.

/definitely face-palmed at myself when I realized what was going on

Maybe I am a musical genius as well, but just don't know it yet because I don't know how to play any (other) instruments!

Ft Campbel sucks I can see why he was miserable and a pain in the ass. We caught a guy jerking off in the showers when I was in basic training. Everyone gets caught eventually especially if you live in the barracks.

I remember being in the Experience Music Project and looking down into a display case and seeing the handwritten lyrics to "Burning of the Midnight Lamp."

I'm not sure "frisson" begins to describe the feeling I had.

SO was I.
He was a better soldier and citizen than a lot of officers.

I interpreted it as him giving another guy a blowjob/playing someone's skin flute, until reading TFA. So dirty mind gone sideways?

Not to mention the things implied by doczoidberg:'s comment. Sorry dude.

LOL He was never in the military and the only tattoo he had was a small heart on his left butt cheek that he got on a weekend bender in Vegas with Mr. McFeely

Cynthia Plaster-Caster has a specimen of Jimi in her collection, but it's incomplete. Apparently he got a little excited during the casting process.

Next you will be telling us that Lee Marvin served with Bob Keeshen.

He didn't.

Oh! And btw there is NOT a 'Superman' in every scene of 'Seinfeld'.
