FILE- In this 1970 file photo, Jimi Hendrix performs on the Isle of Wight in England. Fans of Hendrix and trumpet master Miles Davis have long known that the pair had been making plans to record together in the year before Hendrix’s sudden death in 1970. But less attention has been paid to the bass player they were trying to recruit: Paul McCartney, who was busy with another band at the time. (AP Photo/File)
