  1. Your photo of Hendrix with Eric Burdon and War actually includes (left to right), Chas Chandler (former Animals band member with Burdon), John Mayall, Hendrix, Stevie Winwood, and Eric Burdon. There are no members of the band War in this photograph.

    1. Thank you Rick, I will try and correct it when I get a moment.

  2. Brilliant. I love it. Can’t wait for the next instalment. Well done mate
