Jon, do you think they would respond to a large number of polite letters, or some mention of them as the licensing agent or something?
Who I am as a guitarist is defined by my failure to become Jimi Hendrix.
It's time to move on from Jimi, make our own new music. Greedy money mongers don't understand polite. If they did, they'd have done the polite thing and shared Jimi with the world as he wanted it:
"When I die, I want people to play my music, go wild and freak out and do anything they want to do." Jimi
Jimi's music is being held hostage for a ransom. Never negotiate with terrorists! Our best bet is to express our dollar votes and spend nothing on Jimi, make the sacrifice, it's what he would have wanted:
"The time I burned my guitar it was like a sacrifice. You sacrifice the things you love. I love my guitar."
