“Imagination is the key to my lyrics. The rest is painted with a little science fiction.” ― Jimi Hendrix

Jimi Hendrix in the Army

From Wikipedia:

“Hendrix got into trouble with the law twice for riding in stolen cars. He was given a choice between spending two years in prison or joining the Army. Hendrix chose the latter and enlisted on May 31, 1961. After completing basic training at Fort Ord near Monterey in California, he was assigned to the 101st Airborne Division and stationed in Fort Campbell, Kentucky.”
