An oft repeated quote attributed to Jimi Hendrix, with unfortunately no verifiable evidence.

On the site of what was formerly Sir Henry’s, South Main Street, Cork.

A 19 year-old Jimi Hendrix jams with a friend in 1962. Choosing military service over two years in prison after being arrested in a stolen car, Hendrix was stationed with the 101st Airborne Division at Fort Campbell Kentucky in 1961.

He was awarded an honourable discharge after a year in service on the grounds of ‘unsuitability’.
