If you know about Jimi Hendrix, you should know about his #1 protege, Velvert Turner. Velvert is no longer with us to discuss his time with Jimi, so we have to listen to his music to fill in the gaps. What is so remarkable about Velvert is his vocal reflection of Jimi. If you are not listening carefully, you might think that Jimi made a few extra records. Velvert Turner was actually part of The Velvert Turner Group in the 70's, releasing his album in 1972. We will preview tracks from that release and discuss Velvert.
My musical guest in this edition is a very seasoned talent from Chicago, who has deep roots in many musical genres. It is only fitting that he appear on the Jimi Hendrix Black Legacy Series considering his genre breaking chops. Jimi's music lives through Stan Skibby. Stan will share his knowledge of Jimi and all related topics. Stan is currently in France, spreading Jimi's message--International Style!!! To learn more about Stan, check out these links:

Very few people on this earth can seriously make the claim that they knew Jimi Hendrix intimately from his childhood to his meteroric rise to super stardom. Leon Hendrix, Jimi's brother, can make such a claim. Many author's have written books on Jimi (including myself), but they could only write from a certain perspective. Finally, we get to her what it was like to grow up with Buster AKA Jimi Hendrix. Leon has written a book called: Jimi Hendrix - A Brother's Story. This book is a great read to not only find out about Jimi Hendrix, but Leon has a fascinating story of his own. Tune in to hear Leon talk about his book, his current musical career, and future endeavors.
LEON HENDRIX lives in Los Angeles and is pursuing his art and music full-time in the Leon Hendrix Band. In addition to touring across North America and Europe, he is also the owner of Rockin Artwork LLC, a company that licenses Jimi Hendrix’s likeness and image.
