Hi guys! I just discovered this article and started to think what could have happen if these 3 monsters would have recorded an album...

Paul McCartney, Jimi Hendrix & Miles Davis

"The music universe did not know it at the time but it was deprived of one of the most unique endeavors ever proposed.

Paul McCartney missed out on the chance to form a supergroup with fellow music icons Jimi Hendrix and Miles Davis in 1969 - because he was on holiday.

Hendrix, Davis and the jazz trumpeter's drummer, Tony Williams, were making plans to record an album together with producer Alan Douglas, and decided to call on The Beatles legend to join them on bass.

They sent out the invite via telegram on October 22, 1969, writing, "We are recording and (sic) LP together this weekend. How about coming in to play bass stop call Alan Douglas 212-5812212. Peace Jimi Hendrix Miles Davis Tony Williams."

The message was received by The Beatles aide Peter Brown, who responded and told them McCartney was on vacation in Scotland.

The collaboration never came to fruition and Hendrix died from a drug overdose months later, in September, 1970.

The telegraph has gone on display at the Hard Rock Cafe in Prague, in the Czech Republic." from Starpulse.com

that combination would indeed have been quite interesting biggrin.gif

another one that was rumoured to having been possible was Hendrix with Emerson, Lake & Palmer which would add up into HELP as bandname for a good reason biggrin.gif

Yep interesting...But I would have preferred Billy Cox on Bass who I think was the best with Hendrix(Band of Gypsies)and probably would have fitted in nicely with Davis. Mccartney...brilliant bass player though a different field.
