"With Jimi ... his movement supported sound in a way that was unexpected and of course wonderful for a photographer because he made – I won’t say he made a better picture than a musician – but it was hard to take a bad picture of him. You would really have to work to take a bad picture of him playing."


Quotes from an interview conducted by Steven C. Pesant for Experience Hendrix magazine
