As requested by folks out in the world, I'm reposting one of our earliest episodes - my epic two-part chat with legendary Elvis Costello drummer and Rock'n'Roll Hall of Famer Pete Thomas, now together as one easy to digest episode.
We discuss the classic 1967 debut album from the Jimi Hendrix Experience - “Are You Experienced?”
Along the way, we break down classic tracks including Purple Haze, I Won’t Live Today, Manic Depression, Love or Confusion and Hey Joe, Pete reveals which drum parts in Elvis Costello songs he stole from this album, recalls stalking Hendrix drummer Mitch Mitchell and how he almost got fired from the Attractions but saved himself by calling on the spirit of Mitch. Plus, Pete reveals the Hendrix origin of his most famous drum part and he recalls playing Foxey Lady with the Red Hot Chili Peppers while Flea hung upside down from the ceiling.
