Jimi Hendrix: Jimi Brings Manager's New Club Roof Down!

Keith Altham, New Musical Express, 27 July 1968

JIMI HENDRIX literally brought the roof down on the opening night at his manager's club, Sergeant Peppers in Majorca by the simple expedient of ramming the neck of his guitar up through the low ceiling tiles. Amid thunderous applause, the Experience exited in a shower of plaster and debris after a series of brilliantly electronic histrionics!
