JIMI HENDRIX: THE SPACE WIZARD
The author, Beckley, says, "I can't say in all honesty that
I really knew Jimi Hendrix, but I did see him give a number
of really good performances. It was at one of those post-
Woodstock concerts where I managed to wind my way
backstage. Jimi Hendrix was leaning up against a wall of
amps and speakers. As I walked past him, we both just
kind of nodded as if we recognized each other, and to this
day I can swear I heard him ask me, 'and what planet are
you from pal?'"
Jimi Hendrix fits perfectly some of the characteristics often
representative of 'Walk-Ins'.
World traveler Bill Cox has investigated any number of
cases involving beings who have come here from other
worlds and with the permission of a human, transplanted
their spirits inside one of us (usually at the moment of death,
just after an accident).
There are emissaries among us who know who they are.
They know they are quite different from average men. They
may even be misfits in the physical world...I find that among
this group, some become excessively involved with alcohol,
drugs and sex; anything to try and escape from this - our
world.i Jimi Hendrix could easily be placed into this
category; nobody would deny that.
Jimi expressed a great interest in matters of an extraterrestrial
nature, had admitted seeing UFOs, and once told a reporter
from The New York Times that he was really from Mars.
And he wasnit kidding either. David Henderson, in his book
The Life of Jimi Hendrix (Bantam), quotes Jimi's feelings
about life on other planets: "There are other people in the
solar system, you know, and they have the same feelings
too, not necessarily bad feelings, but see, it upsets their way
of living for instance - and they are a whole lot heavier than
"And it's no war games, because they all keep the same
place. But like the solar system is going through a change soon and
it's going to affect the Earth in about 30 years."
On several occasions during his career, UFOs ijust happenedi
to show up while Jimi was giving a concert. During the last
days of his life, he performed on the rim of an extinct volcano
Jimi played three 45-minute sets, says Henderson in his
best-seller. After each set, he retired to a special sacred Hopi
Indian tent. Later, witnesses in Maui testified that they heard
musical tones emanating from rocks and stones. UFOs were
also sighted over the volcano by people who called in to a
local radio show. A cameraman on the set said that he fell
from his perch after seeing a UFO through his lens.i
In the film Rainbow Bridge, Hendrix rattles on for several
minutes about astral projection and the philosophy of the
Space Brothers. He also tried to master the art of psychic
healing, through color and sound.
Fellow musician and songwriter, Curtis Knight, knew all
about the episode involving the UFO in Maui. iIt was
an odd-looking craft that glittered in the bright sunlight.
Jimi felt certain the UFO had come down to put its
spiritual stamp of approval on the show. He told me that
heid been emotionally and physically recharged by the experience.
During the course of our conversation, Curtis also revealed
the fascinating details of the time a UFO landed in front
of them and actually saved their lives.
The event took place on a cold winteris night near
Woodstock, NY in 1965. According to Curtis, if it hadnit
been for the occupants of this metallic stranger, Jimi and
his fellow musicians might have frozen to death.
It was four oiclock in the morning, and we were trying
to make it back to Manhattan - a drive of more than 100
miles - through the worst blizzard I can recall. The wind
was whipping the snow around our van so fiercely that
we missed the turn-off leading to the state highway that
would put us in the direction of home. The next thing
I remember is getting stuck in a drift that reached the hood
of our vehicle. Soon it got so cold. The windows were
rolled up tight, and we had the heater on full blast to
protect us from the rawness of the elements. I had my
doubts about seeing the light of day. We could have
turned to human icicles very easily. That's how bitter
Curtis says the road in front of them suddenly lit up, as
a bright phosphorescent object icone-shaped, like a
space capsulei landed in the snow about 100 feet up
ahead. It stood on tripod landing gear, and for all
purposes gave the appearance of being something right
out of science fiction. iAt first we thought it was an
apparition caused by the cold and our confused state of
mind. I mean, we just couldnit believe our eyes.
Prodding Jimi with his elbow, Curtis asked if his
imagination was playing tricks on him or whether the
rock star saw it too. iJimi didnit answer, but sort of
smiled. He seemed to be staring out into the night, his
eyes riveted on this thing resting within a stoneis throw.i
Curtis was overcome with fright. Before he could make
a move of any kind, a door opened on the side of the
craft and an entity came forth. He stood eight foot tall,
his skin was yellowish, and instead of eyes, the creature
had slits. His forehead came to a point, and his head ran
straight into his chest, leaving the impression that he had
The being proceeded to float to the ground and glided
toward the trapped occupants of the van. It was then
that Curtis noticed the snow was melting in the wake of
the creature. His body generated tremendous heat, so
much so that as it came across a small rise, the snow
disappeared around in all directions. In a matter of what
seemed like seconds, the being came over to the right-
hand side of the van where Jimi was seated and looked
right through the window. Jimi seemed to be communicating
telepathically with it.
Curtis relates that immediately the interior of their vehicle
began to heat up. iSuddenly, I was roasting! One moment
it had been bitter cold, and the next moment we might as
well have been in Haiti.i The heat coming from the being
evaporated the snow enough to free their imprisoned van.
As it glided behind our van, I saw the drift had completely
vanished. Turning on the ignition key, I gunned the motor
and got out of there. As I looked back through the rear
view window, I could see the road filling in with snow
again. The object - the strange craft - was at the same
instant lifting off like a rocket from a launching pad.
Jimi never did talk much about what happened. He
sort of let me know that the cool thing to do was not
to bring up the subject. It was to be our little secret.
However, from what he did say, I sort of suspect that
the object arrived to save our necks chiefly because
Jimi had been practicing trying to communicate by ESP
with the beings on board. I know this may be hard to
believe, but I'm putting it straight, just like it happened,
The boys from the group who were with us remember
nothing. They were out cold in the back. As we got
into the main road, they revived. Itis as if they had been
placed under a spell - you know - hypnotized.
A capsule review of Jimiis songs shows that he
incorporated some of his interplanetary ties in with his
music. The lyrics of many of his songs contain veiled
references to UFOs. His album, Axis-Bold as Love,
opens with an announcer talking about flying saucers,
with a cut following being a catchy tune called, 'Up
>From the Stars'.
Though he has passed from this plane, it wouldnit be
hard to imagine that somewhere iout therei, Jimi
isnit watching over earth and smiling and we certainly
do miss this vibrant star child who was once in our midst.
