Jimi Hendrix & Mick Jagger photographer Alec Byrne

Catalogue No: JH006ALBY Artist(s): Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones Location: Top of the Pops Studio, Lime Grive, London Date: 4th May 1967 Era: The 1960's Edition: Alec Byrne Limited Edition Print type: Silver Gelatin Print Paper type: Ilford Fibre Based Paper

Jimi Hendrix & Mick Jagger captured together on their first ever meeting at the Top of the Pops Studio in May 1967. The story goes that Hendrix was there to do a taping for the Top of the Pops and Jagger stopped by to "check out the competition."

Alec Byrne recalls, "“I got a late present the day after my eighteenth birthday, May 4, 1967, when I got to watch Hendrix perform on Top of the Pops. At the time I was going to the BBC’s studios at Lime Grove every Thursday for the taping of the weekly music TV show, which was hugely in influential at that time. All the record retailers throughout the country would place their orders on Friday morning depending on what was played on Top of the Pops the night before, and all the major bands would play the show when they released a record—Pink Floyd, the Stones, Hendrix, Marley. I was in awe of Hendrix, so when I saw he was scheduled to play I made sure I was there. He blew the doors off the place like he always did, but the cool moment came when I noticed Mick Jagger behind the stage, out of the lights, just standing there watching Jimi’s set. When the taping was finished, Hendrix went over to Jagger and I immediately followed. ‘Hey guys, do you mind if I get a picture?’ They said sure and I snapped a shot on my Rolleiflex, just one frame, no other photographers around. Jimi had only been in London for ve or six months at that point—I’m pretty sure that was the day they met.”

Mick Jagger famously recalled, "I loved Jimi Hendrix from the beginning. The moment I saw him, I thought he was fantastic. I was an instant convert. Mr. Jimi Hendrix is the best thing I’ve ever seen. It was exciting, sexy, interesting. He didn’t have a very good voice but made up for it with his guitar".
