Hendrix and Redding are interviewed on-air by Chuck Dunaway at WKYC in Cleveland. They also answer questions from callers. Hendrix, known for his love of fast cars, buys a blue Corvette Stingray at Blaushild’s Chevrolet in Cleveland. In an interview with John McDermott, Leon Dicker (attorney & US representative for Yameta, the Animals’ parent company), recalls “I knew he [Jimi] didn’t have a driver’s license… He drove it once – down a one-way street. He was cited for that, as well as not having a driving license. The next day, Hendrix left for Indiana, and [Michael] Jeffery had the car shipped to New York.” That night, the band plays two shows at The Public Music Hall. The first show includes: “Foxey Lady,” “Catfish Blues,” “Hey Joe,” “Purple Haze,” and “Wild Thing.” The second performance featured: “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” “Fire,” “I Don’t Live Today,” “Red House,” “Foxey Lady,” “Spanish Castle Magic,” “Manic Depression,” “Purple Haze,” and “Wild Thing.” Redding recalls the evening was marred by “a very real bomb scare at the hall,” which reportedly delayed the second show for a while. Hendrix is interviewed by Dick Wootten for The Cleveland Press (March 27); The Plain Dealer Sunday Magazine (April 28); and Bruno Bornino for The Cleveland Press (March 29). During the interview with Bornino, Hendrix gives him a string of love beads.
