Of course, there are a lot of ways you can treat the blues, but it will still be the blues.

I’d like to get something together, like with Handel, and Bach, and Muddy Waters, flamenco type of thing [laughs]. If I can get that sound. If I could get that sound, I’d be happy.

One of things I remember about Woodstock was trying to get there to play. As it turns out, the charter plane I was on with Jimi Hendrix flew into the wrong airport. We were supposed to be picked by a helicopter. The roads were jammed and there was nobody at the airport, so we had no way to get to the concert.

So we’re standing at the airport with Melvin Belli [an attorney] trying to figure out what to do. And Melvin Belli steals this pickup truck parked at the airport.

So it’s the three of us in this stolen pickup truck trying to get to the Woodstock concert to play - Jimi, Melvin & me.

That’s what I really remember about Woodstock.

We recorded for three days in August of ‘69, 24 hours after Jimi Hendrix played the last note at Woodstock. Two months later in October, I woke up out of a dead sleep, sat up and said “I recorded with Miles Davis.” It took me that long to realize, this was going to be documented history. What I didn’t realize was how it changed music.
