Jimi Hendrix – The Lost Weekend

A film of Jimi Hendrix‘s infamous ‘lost weekend’ is set to go into production.

Called ‘Slide’, the film is about events in September 1969, when he was apparently the subject of a hoax kidnapping, orchestrated by his manager.

“While we have to be speculative because no definitive version of the event exists, this takes it out of the realm of fiction for me,” writer and director RH Greene told Twentyfourbit.com.

“It’s part of Jimi‘s story, and I think it offers an opportunity to show him fully but from a unique angle. That was my aim in writing it, and that’s going to be my aim in making it.”

The casting process for the film is currently underway, with production scheduled to start early next year.

Meanwhile, live recordings from Hendrix’s 1967 and 1968 shows in Paris and Ottawa are being released on January 25.

“Manic Depression” – The Jimi Hendrix Experience

Manic depression is touching my soul
I know what I want but I just dont know
How to, go about gettin it
Feeling sweet feeling,
Drops from my fingers, fingers
Manic depression is catchin my soul

Woman so weary, the sweet cause in vain
You make love, you break love
Its all the same
When its, when its over, mama
Music, sweet music
I wish I could caress, caress, caress
Manic depression is a frustrating mess

Well, I think Ill go turn myself off,
And go on down
All the way down
Really aint no use in me hanging around
In your kinda scene

Music, sweet music
I wish I could caress, in a kiss, kiss
Manic depression is a frustrating mess
