18th September 1970

I had a job once as a receptionist at a particular biscuit factory near Uttoxeter.  It wasn’t a particularly busy job, and I had one of those ‘on this day’ calendars in my little office.   You know where this is going…


18th September 1970
On this day in nineteen-seventy,
Jimi Hendrix died.
His family and the music world mourned,
And all the rockers cried.
