Jimi Hendrix: Voodoo Child

Synopsis: Jimi Hendrix talking about how he became who he is.
91 min

is as pretty as Seattle.

But I couldn't live there.

You get restless and, before you know it,

you're too old

and you haven't seen any of the world.

There's more for you

in today's "Action: Army".

I bet you didn't wear

this in the paratroops.

Not necessarily.

You were a para... What is it?

A paratrooper or a parachutist? Or "shoutist"?

It doesn't make a difference.

I was 18. I figured I'd have to go

into the army sooner or later

so I walked into the first recruiting office

I saw and volunteered.

I wanted to get everything over with

before I tried to get into

music as a career,

so they wouldn't call me up in the middle of

something that might be happening.

I had no musical training

so I couldn't sign up as a musician.

I figured I might as well go all the way,

so I joined the Airborne.

This is the Airborne.

Tough. Rugged. Big.

This is the outfit that one enemy called

"those devils in baggy pants

This is the outfit where brawn

has to match brains,

where every man has to be

in top-notch condition,

mentally, physically.

If you're that man,

this is your outfit.

I had to buy two pairs of jump boots

and four sets of tailored fatigues,

plus 20 Screaming Eagle badges.

You know what that represents?

The 101st Airborne Division,

Fort Campbell, Kentucky.

Yes, indeed.

"Dear Dad,

Well, here I am,

"exactly where I wanted to go:

in the 101st Airborne.

"How are you and Leon, and everybody?

Fine, I really hope.

"Well, it is pretty rough, but I can't

complain and I don't regret it so far.

"We jumped out of the 34-foot tower

on the third day we were here.

"It was almost fun.

"We were the first nine

out of 150 in our group.

"There were these three guys that quit

when they got to the top of the tower.

"But I have in my mind

that whatever happens, I am not quitting.
