Mick about Jimi : “I was really into him at the time. In fact, we used to play with him a lot. We played with Jimi Hendrix and Albert King at the old FIllmore West in San Francisco...he just completely blew my mind...the way he switched from rhythm to lead, and his guitar and his voice were almost like the same thing. “ (Guitar Player, 2/80)
“Awesome guitarist, and an absolutely fantastic blues player. I don’t think a lot of people appreciate that because he didn’t do too many straight blues in his short recording career, which, if you think about it, spanned only four, maybe five years. But listen to Jimi doing “Catfish Blues” and you can hear the raw influence of Muddy Waters and Albert King. "(The Guitar Magazine)
“In John Mayall’s band I was lucky enough to do some shows on the same bill as Hendrix at the Fillmore West - Albert King was playing as well. Seeing Albert King for the first time was unbelievable - someone who had developed completely his own style, left-handed with the guitar strung upside-down. I can remember me and Jimi Hendrix standing together listening to Albert playing. Both of us were in awe of him.
