Listen: Chaz Chaz, Jimmy, England discussed on 27 Club
"Jimi Hendrix saying the opening mind. Hey Joe and Chas Chandler Bass player for the. Uk's the animals spilled milk shake all over his lap it was Pavlovian. Lyric Melody begets totally embarrassing. Snafu public the milkshake was everywhere. Vanilla cream running down his trouser legs splattered on one of his leather shoes pedal of glop pulling on the floor. Linda Keith sat next to him in the audience at the cafe why can she scuttled her chair backwards to avoid getting sprayed with friendly fire? Chaz barely noticed the spill. His attention was undivided. Both is Jimmy. Holy Shit Chaz exclaimed his thick accent whether it was divine intervention or sheer coincidence beside the point the fact of the matter is that Chas have been listening to Tim. Rose's hey joe that summer and thought it would be a chart topper in England if you can find the right artists to cover it. And now here. He was in this hip basement club in New York City next to a woman he just met watching Guitar Player. He'd never heard of and the guy opens is set with. Hey Joe it was fucking cosmic ever mind that the guy summoned forth these transformative covers of soul nuggets like in the midnight. Hour knock on wood and mercy mercy. It was like Chaz was hearing them off the first time. The trucks wild thing. That was Jimmy's now and they were all Jimmy's now Linda Ranan Chas the day before outside another club New York. She didn't know him personally but knew of him. From the stones knew he played bass for the animals a British invasion group out of Newcastle. With a couple of iconic hits including house of the rising sun which was huge on both sides the pond. Chaz stood at six feet four inches. He was always in the back of the band's Promo shots towering over the other chaps long based to Keith Richards had mentioned Linda the Chaz is leaving the animals after their current tour in with shifting his focus to producing artists management. He just had to see Jimmy. Playland assisted this. Could be the guy you've been looking for. He plays all the time a cafe. What you feel like you're in this alternate reality when you're watching him watching this guy who is immediately identifiable as one of the best things you've ever seen get. The rest of the room is somewhere else. There are witnessing the same thing that you're witnessing. It's almost like it's so good that it's missing the majority of these people and they don't know what they're looking at. Don't know how to explain. It don't know how to rationalize you never seen anything like this chess. Chaz agreed to meet Linda the next afternoon cafe watt and witness Jimmy Firsthand for himself onstage. Jimmy was no longer beholden to the vision of another bandleader. No longer held the someone else's dress code someone else's performance style denote the worry about being fined or something stupid. He could explore what it meant to be himself whenever that was even if he was still hiding behind this to me. James Prasada. Chaz had the same reaction that Linda originally had if anything is transcended hers he thought to himself. This is ridiculous. Why is it win? Snatched this guy up yet. There must be a catch after the show. Chazz introduced himself and cut to the chase. You wanted Jimmy to come back to England with. There was a reason why America was catching on in an equal reason. Why England was prior for an introduction and the history of Music Hall was still in England's musical bloodstream. The flamboyance the theatrics the fantasy and the whimsey and the scene over there was full of band smitten with American. Blues and our MB. To places where Jimmy was coming from it was sure. Fire away to exit. The disaffected seen in the states and become something entirely different abroad not to die but to be reporting away from land so battered and torn forever. Jimmy took a drag from his half smoke. Cigarette did that nervous reaction thing whereas nostrils flared up and his closed lips curled into a half. Smile is avoiding Chaz. Look up the low ceiling. He was ensure England and I was like another world man one if it was a disaster. What if he failed? He was hawking guitars and relying on the kindness of strangers in a country. Who is familiar with? What would he do if he fell on hard times in a foreign land on the other hand? What the hell. What's the worst that could happen? In the states Jimmy had encountered his fair share of roadblocks tribulations nonbelievers. If it wasn't little Richard firing his ass for insubordination. Than it was the black owned hotels he had to stay at twenty thirty forty miles away from the venue. Hughes playing sure he won twenty five dollars at the Apollo theaters amateur contests but if he kept accidentally breaking gear that belong to the likes of Curtis Mayfield. He was going to need a lot more than talent. Show money. Chaz already more excited about Jimmy that all of the leaders of all the bands he had been in over the years. He obviously knew the business he was experienced and he was willing to put it on the live. Jimmy stubbed out the end of smoke decision. Time now or never take your time. Hurry up choice is yours. Don't be late Jimmy. Stuck out his hand to shake. Chaz Chaz had a promise in one thing though wanted to meet Eric. Is that all making an intro. To Eric was easy considerate. Done actually house. This Chaz it Hook Jimmy up so he could sit in with Eric onstage. As soon as he got over there Jimi Hendrix Kadhem Guitar. Do the talk to Eric."
