Jimi Hendrix Sports Drinks?!?!?!

Deplorable on every fricking level. I love the "Some proceeds go to..." crap. Everyone knows damn well the bulk of the money goes to some CEO while Hendrix is raped from the grave. Fricking disgusting.

It doesn't even make sense! He's not even a sports icon. I could understand if it were endorsed by a famous football player or something like that, but...he's a guitarist.

I am assuming some corporate clone saw his raver/club kid son rehydrating after a night of rolling with red bull and thought how all of the cool hip kids used to be into Hendrix and they would love to have a drink named after them while they are getting high. I have seen more ridiculous and obtuse ideas. The minds of marketing demons will always escape me. Must be this damn soul I am carrying around. Who knows.

My mistake...

I'm sure I read that his family owned rights to his name, maybe I did and they sold them on. Or I talk shit

Yep. I remeber a story where Hendrix's uncle took those bastards to court in a valiant attempt to keep his catalog sacred. And lost horribly. I think Hendrix would have laughed these pricks out of his studio if they proposed this crap. They used Woody Guthrie's music in a fricking car commercial. I don't care what the owners of his music say, he would never, in a million years, have allowed a car company to use his music to market cars.

Whoops. It was his father that fought to keep his catalog and name.

Go Hendrix's Dad!

But in the end he lost. Otherwise this crap wouldn't be happening.

Because Jimi really represented good health with all the drugs and choking on his own vomit, really makes ya think "ENERGY DRINK!"
#30
I see no problem with this. He signed his rights away. It doesn't say Hendrix endorsed it just has the name Hendrix.

Mabye if I drink it, I'll be as good at tennis as Jimi himself!

He was a tennis player, right?

Soon you will sit on the bench

You sell a dream you create
Condemned by what you condemned before
Smooth are the words you sing down and high
