Fillmore East

At the very back of a yellowed folder containing old pencil sketches I found this Hendrix idea and realized what a strange journey it has had. JImi wanted all 3 band members to be in the poster, so I ditched this and used the now-famous orange one. But in 1970 I was asked to do a poster for a musical about the Rock recording recording industry called Soon, starring then unknowns Richard Gere, Barry Bostwick, Peter Allen & Nell Carter! It ran for 3 days. The poster is now forgotten.
