September 13th Proclaimed JIMI HENDRIX - WINTERLAND DAY By City of San Francisco…And It Happened At Amoeba SF!

Posted by The Bay Area Crew, September 14, 2011 04:28pm | Post a Comment
In honor of the release of Jimi Hendrix Experience Winterland, the four-CD box set documenting the
jimi hendrix winterland day band’s historic performances at San Francisco’s legendary Winterland Ballroom over the course of six concerts in just  three nights in October of 1968, September 13th was proclaimed JIMI HENDRIX - WINTERLAND DAY by the Board of Supervisors of the City and County of San Francisco! As the site of the former Winterland Ballroom at Post and Steiner Streets (where legends such as The Rolling Stones and Jefferson Airplane once presided) is now covered in condominiums, the ceremony was held at the next best beacon of Bay Area rock and roll glory…Amoeba San Francisco!

As scheduled, a limo arrived right at 7:00pm to 1855 Haight Street that 
Jimi Hexdrix & Jamie Hendrixnight carrying the funk legend Bootsy Collins and Janie Hendrix, Jimi’s half-sister and Experience Hendrix CEO, who were present to accept the honor on Jimi’s behalf.  Bootsy and Janie were accompanied by the glamorous Patti Collins (Bootsy’s wife), and a few friends and relatives. The crowd went wild as Bootsy and Janie were introduced from the Amoeba stage by publicist Bob Merlis, and then the JIMI HENDRIX - WINTERLAND DAY proclamation (see below for full text) was delivered by progressively hip District 8 Supervisor Scott Wiener, who also spoke on the legacy of San Francisco’s music scene.

Janie Hendrix thanked Supervisor Wiener, Bootsy, and the crowd of fans for keeping Jimi’s spirit alive and, obviously overwhelmed with the support, wondered what Jimi would think of all this. “He would probably just say WOW.” She said. “He was a man of few words.”
