“They’ll adore you,” Phil May told Jimi Hendrix
The Pretty Things singer on giving Jimi bad advice.
I got friendly with Jimi after seeing him at this extraordinary showcase gig. I remember the time he was about to play Paris, which to me was Babylon. The Pretty Things were like kings there, we always went down a storm. So I said to Jimi: ‘God, when you get to Paris they’re going to fall at your feet. They’ll adore you.’
