Apparently, Little Richard fired Hendrix for "showboating/upstaging" him....that and being late all the time....

I'd imagine Ike felt similarly, seeing as Hendrix destroys him talent-wise.

You could say that about Hendrix vs. a lot of people. Ike Turner, for all his personal faults, was a quite talented musician.

Hey Joe, he stood too close to Tina's fire while doing Purple Haze in Crosstown Traffic due to his manic depression.

a fair point.

I guess my point was: I imagine having Hendrix as a "backing musician" was quite threatening....

probably similar to putting a picture of John Holmes' dong on the bedside table...
