Jimi Hendrix - Purple Haze live at Rainbow Bridge Color/Sound Experiment 1970.Hendrix wrote the lyrics to Purple Haze on 26th December 1966. He wrote a lot more than what made it to the song.
This song was written under the guidance of Hendrix' manager, ex-Animals bassist Chas Chandler. They had just released Hendrix' first single, a cover of Tim Rose's "Hey Joe" and were looking for a follow up. Chandler was impressed when he first heard the riff, and inspired Jimi to finish writing the song.
