Jimi: Death riddleJimi Hendrix was murdered - and his manager confessed to the crime. That's the dramatic claim in a new book written by one of the guitarist's roadies.

Rock Roadie, by James "Tappy" Wright, will be published this month, and includes anecdotes of the crewman's life with stars like Elvis, the Animals and Tina Turner.

But he also says Hendrix's manager, Michael Jeffrey, drunkenly admitted to killling his client a year after the event in September 1970.

Wright, who worked with Hendrix from his early unknown days, says Jeffrey told him he'd gone to the star's hotel room and got him to overdose on drugs and alcohol. Jeffrey's contract was set to expire in December, and it looked as if Hendrix was going to move on to other management.

Jeffrey, who died himself in a plane crash in 1973, is said to have told Wright the whole story a year after Hendrix was reported as having choked on his own vomit. Insurance would have been the reason behind the murder - Jeffrey would be entitled to loss of earnings, but would have left with nothing if the contract simply expired.

Wright explains: "I can still hear that conversation, see the man I'd known for so much of my life, clutching his glass in sudden rage.

"He told me: 'I had to do it, Tappy. You understand, don't you? You know damn well what I'm talking about.

"'I was in London the night of Jimi's death and together with some old friends we went round to the hotel room, got a handful of pulls and stuffed them into his mouth, then poured a few bottles of red wine deep into his windpipe.

"'I had to do it. Jimi was worth much more to me dead than alive. That sone of a bitch was going to leave me. If I lost him, I'd lose everything.'"

Hendrix is a member of the tragic '27 Club', rock stars who died at that age, which also includes Kurt Cobain, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison and Robert Johnson. Take our poll on the right - do you think Hendrix was murdered?

Rock Roadie by James Tappy Wright and Rod Weinberg will be published on June 25 by JR Books, hardback price £16.99. More details on the book

Jimi died in a girlfriends apartment, not a hotel room. She was with him the from the afternoon before til the time she realized he wasn't breathing the next morning. What a load of crap.

Once everybody's dead, you can write a book alleging almost anything! There's a book and a movie about how a former manager killed Brian Jones. In this case, the former manager is also deceased. I guess crankin' out a couple hundred pages of BS is easier than working!

Read my book:

I shot Lincoln because he was talking too much and I couldn't hear the play. Laura Keene was a babe and I had worked hard for those tickets and all I heard was 'Father Abe' ranting on about the hardness of his chair. Man, he had boxseats, what's his problem?

To read more about this exciting night in my life, send $19.99 to TanDan. I'll throw in FREE my book on how I built the Brooklyn Bridge. ( That Robles guy is SUCH a poser! ). Money back offer. Operators are standing by to take your orders. 1-800-bul-lsh*t

Not that I am buying Tappy's story but this is not the first time that murder has been attached with Jimi's name. He did have many people pulling him in different directions. Some heavy hitters also and his manager Michael Jeffrey was caught up with some mobsters. Black Panthers and who knows how many others trying to get control.

Who knows........

Wow...interesting stuff. Hadn't really heard anything about Jimi being murdered, but the Brian Jones story apparently had some truth to it. I guess the guy confessed on his death bed or something. Seemed a little more legit then a roadie trying to make money.

Not many since Gary Rossington had everyone who bought one killed along with the author and to top it all off he burned the publishing firm to the ground. He got Artimus Pyle on the child molestation charges. He almost got Ed with the whole heart failure thing. The guy is diabolical, pure evil.
