Hardcore Hendrix

A little while ago I reviewed the Jimi Hendrix sex tape for the Orlando Weekly – I’d said I wasn’t quite convinced that it was Hendrix, but honestly – and I said this in the review – how the hell would I know? It’s a pretty hot video anyway, and a day before my review came out this news hit the web (this is excerpted from showbizspy.com):

Porn Company Boss Claims Victory In Hendrix Sex Tape Battle
By WENN, July 9 2008
The bosses of a DVD porn company are claiming victory in their battle over the authenticity of a JIMI HENDRIX sex romp, claiming the rock legend's estate has failed to prove the star of the raunchy footage isn't the late guitar great.
Vivid Entertainment released Jimi Hendrix: The Sex Tape on DVD in May (08) and company bosses were immediately challenged over the authenticity of the footage.
The controversial video depicted a man having sex with two women, and Vivid insisted the star was Hendrix.
Vivid co-chairman Steven Hirsch even offered Experience Hendrix, LLC officials $100,000 (GBP50,000) if they could prove the man in the video wasn't the rock star.
Sixty days after the offer, the Hendrix estate has failed to come up with verifiable proof that Hendrix is not the star of Jimi Hendrix: The Sex Tape

Despite my flawed-but-typical skepticism the review is worth reading – link below – hope you enjoy it!
