I was just reading your book Black Vinyl White Powder and reached the part about a Jimi Hendrix concert in London which you went to and everyone was there - the Beatles, the Stones, etc. You said it was just in a small theatre.
Which one was it?

Yours

Hi Neil

It was the Saville Theatre, now a multiplex cinema in the part of Shaftesbury Avenue nobody goes to go (to the east of Charing Cross Road ).

Brian Epstein (the Beatles' manager) bought the theatre in order to put on pop and rock concerts every Sunday at 5pm. They were open to the public, of course, but the events were so stunning that the whole music industry turned up every week - artists, managers, record company people -
