Jimi Hendrix dreamed of swimming from bed to breakfast


See Rolling Stone

A week before Jimi Hendrix unexpectedly passed away in 1970, he sat down with British journalist Keith Altham for what would be his last known interview. PBS’ animated web series Blank on Blank has gotten hold of the audio tapes and animated six minutes of their conversation, where Hendrix lightheartedly explains his views on politics, radicals, raging against the machine and more. […]

Along with more serious topics, Hendrix also addresses what he thinks a successful lifestyle should entail. “I want to get up in the morning, just roll over in my bed to an indoor swimming pool and swim to the breakfast table. Come up for air, get a drink of orange juice . . . Is that luxurious?”
