About the image
"Before his San Francisco concerts in February 1968, we met Jimi at his motel on Fisherman’s Wharf. As the writer was interviewing a surprisingly quiet Jimi, I shot some informal portraits, one of which appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone Issue No. 26. It was impossible to take a bad photo of Hendrix; he was the most photogenic musician I ever encountered, whether he was in motion on the stage or at rest with his friends."

"What always amazed me about Jimi was that when you were with him and taking pictures for an interview of one form or another, he was just - at least the few times I was with him - he was quiet and very soft spoken." -- Baron Wolman
