I believe he also used to play road dates w/ Richard Penniman, aka Little Richard (arguably THE best voice in early rock)
Re: photo taken on my phone.
It's funny how we take for granted the technology we have. If you would have said that in the 80's or prior...you may have gotten some strange looks....
Right, I googled the pic and here's the original. This was an Atlantic Records party in 1966, NYC, the same year Jimi went on to London and got 'Experienced'. I think the band was The Midnight Movers
PS- Larry, I think Jimi's Strat/Marshall thing happened when he met up with Jim Marshall in London, which was later that year. This does look like a Jag.
