1970/09/11 - Cumberland Hotel, London - Jimi's Last Interview w/ Keith Altham
An entire transcript of Jimi's last interview done with Keith Altham can be found at the official Jimi Hendrix site here
At the end of the interview, Hendrix brings everything to a suprisingly funny ending:
ALTHAM: Do you feel personally that you have enough money to live comfortably without necessarily making more as a sort of professional entertainer?
HENDRIX: Ah, I don't think so, not the way I'd like to live, because like I want to get up in the morning and just roll over in my bed into an indoor swimming pool and then swim to the breakfast table, come up for air and get maybe a drink of orange juice or something like that. Then just flop over from the chair into the swimming pool, swim into the bathroom and go on and shave and whatever.
ALTHAM: You don't want to live just comfortably, you wanna live luxuriously?
HENDRIX: No! Is that luxurious? I was thinking about a tent, maybe, [laughs] overhanging ... overhanging this ... a mountain stream! [laughter].
