Still playing the Sears Silvertone guitar he used all the way to his band Jimmy James & The Blue Flames in 1966.



This is his last band in NYC in 1966 before moving to London. He gave Randy California of Spirit his stage name in this band. Randy California was only 17 and his parents wouldn't let him go to England with Hendrix.



Hendrix didn't do well in NYC. He was half American Indian and half Black. He said he wasn't Black enough for Harlem or White enough for Greenwich Village.
