hendrix11966: Jimi Hendrix’s second day in London is eventful. He’s in bed with Cathy Etchingham, a 19-year-old hairdresser who has taken his fancy, when Keith Richards’ ex, Linda Keith, bursts into his hotel room, steals a guitar she bought for him in New York, climbs under the covers, and says he can only have the guitar back if he sleeps with her. This is the ’60s, but Hendrix still declines the offer.
