This article on Devon Wilson, a close girlfriend of Jimi Hendrix and famous so-called ‘super groupie’ in the 1960s, was researched in tandem with my forthcoming Hendrix radio show.
The first part, which appears in the November 2022 (#78) issue of Univibes magazine, coveres the period of Devon’s life up until late 1968. The more extensive part two in the current issue #79 focuses on events from 1969 to her death in 1972 and, after decades of widely-held misinformation, clarifies the true circumstances of her passing.
Big thanks to those who very kindly gave up their time to speak to me for this project, as well as to Univibes Editor Caesar Glebbeek for his immeasurable help. Please visit univibes.com for copies of the magazine and much more besides.
