July 15th, 1968
After Jimi and Mitch arrive in Palma, Majorca, Spain the group is scheduled to open the new Sergeant Pepper’s night club, which is the latest venture managed by Chas Chandler and Michael Jeffrey. Although their appearance is an unofficial Experience gig, they perform “Hey Joe,” “Burning of the Midnight Lamp,” “Purple Haze,” “The Wind Cries Mary,” and “Wild Thing.” Jimi and I swapped instruments, explains Noel Redding in his diary. At the end of “Wild Thing,” Jimi raised his guitar towards the dropped ceiling and it went straight through the flimsy material. So he left it swinging there and the crowd roared.”
