AMAZING TRIVIA

Jim Hendricks
Unbeleivable. Musician Jim Henricks teamed up with Casse Elliot and ... TIM ROSE to form The Big 3,
a mid sixties folk trio ! In 1966, Rose released his own solo interpretation of "Hey Joe", which inspired Jimi to parform it.
Talk about a cosmic coincidence..

Tim Rose, Cass Elliot and Jim Hendricks !
