'Jimi Hendrix: Hear My Train' review: Vital glance
San Francisco Chronicle - over 3 years
Hear My Train a Comin', directed by Bob Smeaton and premiering Tuesday on PBS, hits all the right notes, beginning with Hendrix's childhood in Seattle, his military service where he met lifelong friend and frequent collaborator Billy Cox, and into his tragically brief but still brilliant career as one of the greatest guitar players in the world. [...] there's plenty of musical evidence of his singular genius, including previously unseen footage from the 1968 Miami Pop Festival. For many, the real highlight of the film won't be commentary from musicians such as Paul McCartney, Dweezil Zappa, Dave Mason, Steve Winwood or Hendrix's bandmates in the Experience, Noel Redding and Mitch Mitchell. Kramer, who worked closely with Hendrix for years, deconstructs a single passage of typically dense Hendrix music to demonstrate how the sound was created through the fusion of three guitar layers, each of which was musically distinct from the others. Another reason Hendrix attracted attention, s ...

Iconic British Things: A Salute To Jim Marshall (1923 – 2012) And His Stack Of Glory
BBC Blogs- America - almost 5 years
A Marshall half-stack. Jim Marshall, the pioneer of loud guitar amplification and creator of the Marshall stack, has sadly passed away at the age of 88. The story of his career, and the rise of his company, is also the story of how the scrappy kids from the ’50s skiffle boom started to make inroads into the British music industry during the ’60s, until they were setting the standards for others to reach by the ’70s, and leaving a hefty rock ‘n’ roll template to either follow or ignore forever after. His name is on instrument amplifiers the world over, and his organization long since took its place alongside the iconic manufacturers of musical instruments – Fender, Gibson, Rickenbacker etc – as being key players in the development of rock music. His career began as a London singer and amateur PA maker, during the Second World War. Kept out of the forces due to a bout of tuberculosis, he would double up on drums sometimes, as musicians were called up to the forces, and of course ...

  • 2003
    Redding was found dead in his home in Clonakilty on 11 May 2003.
    More Details Hide Details A post mortem was carried out on 13 May at Cork University Hospital in Wilton, Cork. The report concluded that Redding died from "shock haemorrhage due to oesophageal varices in reaction to cirrhosis of the liver". He was 57 years old. In the village of Ardfield, local people erected a plaque to his memory. A compilation CD and record entitled The Experience Sessions was released by Experience Hendrix, LLC in 2004. Along with the released tracks ("She's So Fine" and "Little Miss Strange") the collection contains rare and unreleased Redding-penned songs recorded by The Jimi Hendrix Experience. Most of the tracks are outtakes from Axis: Bold As Love and Electric Ladyland, and feature Redding predominantly on guitar (with Hendrix on bass). It also features a live version of Hendrix's "Red House" with Redding on rhythm guitar. With The Loving Kind
  • 2002
    Noel Redding’s last performance was not performed at the Bunkr in Prague, Czech Republic in 2002 as continually reported — that gig was performed and recorded in November 1995 in front of the then President of the Czech Republic, and released shortly before Noel's death.
    More Details Hide Details Noel's last performance was in his "home town" of Clonakilty at De Barras pub, where he had held the Friday night residency for nearly 20 years, performing with some of the local musicians who appeared on his last album "Thanks You, Goodnight and Good Luck" including Steve Pawsey, Jeff Ward, Jim O'Neil, Eric Bell and Les Sampson.
  • CHILDHOOD
  • 1974
    In his book Are You Experienced? (co-authored with Carol Appleby) he spoke openly about his disappointment in his being cut off from the profits of the continued sale of the Hendrix recordings. He was forced to sign away his royalties in 1974 and in 1980 had to sell the bass guitar he used with the Experience to a collector.
    More Details Hide Details Redding had received $100,000 (equivalent to about $479,825 in today's funds) as a one-off payment after he had been told that there would be no more releases of Jimi Hendrix Experience material. (This was before the advent of CDs and DVDs.) Right up until his death, Redding had been planning legal action against the Hendrix estate for payment estimated at £3.26 million for his part in Hendrix's recording and for ongoing royalties. From 1997 after meeting San Francisco musician and songwriter Keith Dion in London during the awarding of an English Heritage Blue Plaque Award, Noel performed several USA tours with Dion's band "3:05 AM" - all of which were recorded and professionally filmed. Audio excerpts made their way to the UK and European releases "West Cork Tuning" and "Stone Free" - a biographical film trailer from these performances can be seen here.
  • 1972
    Noel Redding moved to Ireland in 1972.
    More Details Hide Details He formed The Noel Redding Band with Eric Bell from Thin Lizzy, Dave Clarke, Les Sampson, and Robbie Walsh. Despite the band's name, Redding shared songwriting and lead vocal duties equally with Clarke. They released two albums for RCA, three tours of the Netherlands, two tours of England, one tour of Ireland, and a 10-week tour in the US. The band dissolved after a dispute with their management company. Tracks recorded for a third unreleased album were later released as The Missing Album on Mouse Records.
  • OTHER
  • 1968
    In 1968, Redding formed the group Fat Mattress with another Kent musician, Neil Landon (born as Patrick Cahill, 27 July 1941, Kirdford, Sussex), on vocals.
    More Details Hide Details The band also included Jim Leverton (born 1946, Dover, Kent) on bass and keyboards and Eric Dillon (born 1950, Swindon) on drums. Redding played guitar and vocals, and a key part of the Fat Mattress sound was the vocal harmonies between him, Landon, and Leverton. The band initially toured in support of the Jimi Hendrix Experience, requiring Redding to play two full sets each night. He left Fat Mattress after only one album with them, though some of his compositions would appear on their second album. Hendrix's manager, Michael Jeffery, attempted to reunite the Jimi Hendrix Experience months after the Woodstock event. The three were interviewed by Rolling Stone magazine, but no shows or recordings resulted. Redding soon went on to other projects. While living in Los Angeles he formed Road, a three-piece in the same psychedelic hard rock vein as the Experience, with Rod Richards (born as Rod Cox; ex Rare Earth) on guitar and Les Sampson on drums, and Redding himself switching back to bass. They released one album, Road (1972), with the three members taking turns on lead vocals.
  • 1966
    Born in Folkestone, he was selected by Chas Chandler to join Hendrix's band at its inception in 1966 and left in 1969.
    More Details Hide Details Although he played in other bands before, after, and even during his stint with the Experience, he never achieved a similar level of success and retired to Clonakilty, Ireland, in 1972. At age nine, Redding played violin at school and then mandolin and guitar. His first public appearances were at the Hythe Youth Club then at Harvey Grammar School where he was a student. His first local bands, in which he played lead guitar, were: At 17 Redding went professional and toured clubs in Scotland and Germany with Neil Landon and the Burnettes (formed in late 1962) and The Loving Kind (formed in November 1965).
  • 1964
    In addition, The Lonely Ones reunited in September 1964, and Redding remained with them a year before taking his leave.
    More Details Hide Details Redding switched from guitar to bass on joining the Jimi Hendrix Experience. He was the first person to join the Experience, and the first to leave. His final concert with them was in June 1969. With the band, he helped create the three landmark albums Are You Experienced, Axis: Bold as Love, and Electric Ladyland, as well as performing in some of Hendrix's most celebrated concerts. His playing style was distinguished by the use of a pick, a mid-range "trebly" sound, and in later years the use of fuzz and distortion effects through overdriven Sunn amps. His role in the band was that of a time-keeper. This was evident in the Experience's version of "Come On (Baby Let the Good Times Roll)" and "Drivin' South" from the BBC Sessions. He would typically lay down a bass groove over which Hendrix and drummer Mitch Mitchell would loosely play. He wrote two album tracks, "Little Miss Strange" and "She's So Fine". He played the bass line on "Red House" using the bass strings on a normal six-string guitar.

    Born on December 25, 1945.
