I suppose the old natural stuff would be ok, the old mushroom, but I wouldn't advise anyone to do it.
Everybody was starting to grow long hair and wear pink suits and purple glasses and stuff and then, I suppose, some people thought we were crazy, but we weren't really crazy because we're all still here!
But people are now realising why I was playing bass with Hendrix.
Hendrix rehearsed different drummers, before we met Mitch Mitchell.
I took up violin because my best mate had taken it up, so I did likewise.
The Fat Mattress consisted of people I'd played with before joining the 'Experience and it was put together as a song writing situation.
The first band I was in, I think was called The Strangers. I got the sack because I was too small!
We had no sleep or days off or anything like that and then, when the band became big, Hendrix became a star and looked down at us lot.
At the age of nine, playing the violin at school, and then onto the mandolin.
I was the first guy to join the band with Hendrix.
I wouldn't know how I would have coped with The Beatles' sort of fame.
I'd gone professional when I was about seventeen.
My lady, Deborah McNaughton is doing a documentary on me.
My personal favourite is Jeff Beck. All the others are wonderful as well.
On Ain't No Telling I came up with the bass solo.
