The Experience Hendrix Tour family is deeply saddened to learn of the passing of drummer, Tim “Awesome” Austin who was a member of Buddy Guy’s ‘The Damn Right Blues Band’ and a frequent participant in the Experience Hendrix Tour over many years.
We are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of our friend, legendary Tour and Production Manager, Gerry Stickells. Forever linked inseparably with The Jimi Hendrix Experience, bassist Noel Redding encouraged Gerry to look after the group’s transportation and equipment in November 1966 when the band made their first tour of Germany in support of their debut single, “Hey Joe.” Over the course of the following four years, Gerry’s role soon expanded to encompass all of Jimi’s tour and production needs.
