Description

It’s pretty hard to believe that significant guitars and wardrobe from the Best Rock -N- Roll guitarist of all time, exists to this day. Are you ready for this Hendrix aficionados’? If you haven’t read it yet, get the book “Rock Roadie” and you will be able to read the story of Tappy Wright’s life and why he ended up with a few “souvenirs” from the ’60’s rock legend Jimi Hendrix. Wright used to be the general manager Anim lmted which was owned by Mike Jeffrey who managed Jimi Hendrix and the Animals and was also a Roadie for the Animals. He worked with Hendrix and some of the biggest rock legends of the day.

From Tappy’s collection comes this pair of Hendrix crushed velvet green trousers. The letter of authentication reads as follows from Wright:

“Jimi Hendrix Crushed Velvet Green Trousers

The trousers where (sic) owned/worn by Jimmi Hendrix for a photo shoot used on the 1968 Album Smash Hits by the Jimi Hendrix Experience. The photo appears in the gatefold of the album. The trousers were tailored for Jimi Hendrix by the designer Bodner Elem who also tailored pieces for John Lennon. They are made form Green Crushed velvet with a bell bottom flare.

They have been in the possession of myself James “Tappy” Wright since the early seventies when the Anim Offices closed where I was the manager. They were removed by myself along with other items of clothing and affects belonging to Jimi for safe keeping and have been in my possession ever since.”

These trousers were actually not the exact ones used on the Jimi Hendrix Experience album, but were worn by Hendrix and they were part of the clothing used to create the 1968 Album Smash Hits by the Jimi Hendrix Experience.
