While the world are still waiting with baited breath for Limp Bizkit's hotly anticipated new album Gold Cobra to surface, guitarist Wes Borland will be temporarily leaving the Florida nu-metal titans to join Atlanta industrial mob Combichrist.
Combichrist are set to support Rammstein on their North American tour dates in December.
The name Jimi Hendrix conjures up some of the most colourful and wildest moments that the sixties produced. Hendrix arrived, he conquered and took the music world by storm, got inside your head and went onto the great gig in the sky - all by the age of 27.
The Jimi Hendrix Experience , left you in no doubt that it was exactly that – an experience.
A trio of musicians who came together from both sides of the Atlantic and found common ground, fame and for one third of the group not very much fortune.
For Noel Redding the bass player in the group the experience was not to be forgotten. Since the death of Hendrix 40 years ago, much has been documented about him and the group.

Making a timely appearance is a DVD that is being put out by Discs International, containing a never before seen interview with Noel Redding recorded at his home in Ireland in 1988.
It makes fascinating viewing. All the years of seeing film of them in concert and photographs of Hendrix, Redding and Mitchell, you find yourself sitting in a living room not with just a legend – but an ordinary guy talking about his early days with the group. No rock star here, no pretentious name dropping, just plain talking. Listening to him you are left wondering how they made it to top.
I asked Producer Will Scally who had the foresight to record this interview how it all came about.
“ I had known and been friends with Noel for many years and always found him a very upfront, straightforward guy. We often spoke about doing an interview, he wanted to speak about the band, money, drugs and the death of Hendrix and much more – even speaking about the possibility of Hendrix being murdered. He was on good form that day and wanted to record this for posterity.
Sadly Noel Redding died back in 2003 aged 57.
For those interested in Hendrix, Redding and the history of sixties rock music this rare visual documentary should not be missed.
Release date NOVEMBER 2010.
