But people are now realising why I was playing bass with Hendrix.
Everybody was starting to grow long hair and wear pink suits and purple glasses and stuff and then, I suppose, some people thought we were crazy, but we weren't really crazy because we're all still here!
We had no sleep or days off or anything like that and then, when the band became big, Hendrix became a star and looked down at us lot.
I came to join the Experience by going for an audition for Eric Burdon who was just forming the New Animals at that point, after the original Animals had broken up.
Well, I'd had the Fat Mattress earlier as a writing outlet for songs and that.
The first band I was in, I think was called The Strangers. I got the sack because I was too small!
On Ain't No Telling I came up with the bass solo.
My lady, Deborah McNaughton is doing a documentary on me.
I'd gone professional when I was about seventeen.
I wouldn't know how I would have coped with The Beatles' sort of fame.
I took up violin because my best mate had taken it up, so I did likewise.
Hendrix rehearsed different drummers, before we met Mitch Mitchell.
At the age of nine, playing the violin at school, and then onto the mandolin.
I suppose the old natural stuff would be ok, the old mushroom, but I wouldn't advise anyone to do it.
Keep on playing the Experience!
