English born Aussie acting legend John Waters (Offspring, Oliver, Rush) is probably best known for his one man musical about the life of John Lennon “Looking Through A Glass Onion”, but his favorite album is from another icon who emerged from the 60s British rock scene - Jimi Hendrix’s “Electric Ladyland” from 1968.
John and host Jeremy Dylan talk about growing up in England during the rock boom, how making a double album allowed Hendrix to experiment more, why Hendrix’s version of “All Along the Watchtower” has eclipsed Bob Dylan’s original, Hendrix’s lack of confidence in his unique voice and why Hendrix did jamming right.
