Janie Hendrix, sister of Jimi Hendrix and president and CEO of Experience Hendrix, LLC, has been talking to NBC Nightly News about her memories of her brother. And, as HenneMusic notes, Janie has also revealed the meaning behind the title of the guitarist's recent posthumous album "People, Hell And Angels":
"'People, Hell & Angels' really was a title that Jimi came up with," explains Janie. "I was working on the lyric book so these are just like single pages of handwritten lyric, or handwritten notes... some things could be on hotel stationery or a legal pad. When I was going through all these notes putting together the lyric book, then I just found this title that said 'people, hell and angels.'"
Janie has fond memories of her brother.
"In a lot of ways, Jimi was the best big brother ever," she says. "I was very much adored and we had a promise that we'd made to one another: he was saying 'I promise I'll always take care of you; you'll never have to worry about anything.' And I said 'when I grow up, I will always take care of you' ... and I really look at that as a cosmic promise."
