Hendrix on Cavett

Screen cap from YouTube

If you’ve never seen this Classic Video, we urge you to invest one minute of your time and watch it. You’ll never grow tired of it.

It’s Jimi Hendrix visiting the Dick Cavett Show in 1970 to talk about the guitarist’s performance of the “Star Spangled Banner” at Woodstock.

Cavett: “What was the controversy about the National Anthem…?”

Guitar God: “I don’t know, man. All I do is play it. I’m American so I play it. They made us sing it in school so it’s a flashback.”

Watch Jimi flash the peace sign to the camera and then how he pretends to scare Cavett. Beautiful…

The erudite Cavett turned 80 in 2016.
