Mystery Man: Bob Smeaton talks about Jimi Hendrix: Hear My Train A Comin’

2 November 2013 6:17 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Trevor Hogg chats with Bob Smeaton about a guitar virtuoso whose chords resonate four decades after his death... 

For documentarian Bob Smeaton (The Beatles Anthology) the life and music of a legendary guitarist from Seattle, Washington continues to be a source of fascination.  “I did a film a number of years ago which was about the Band of Gypsies and how Jimi Hendrix formed the group. It was a good film and was well received.  I won a Grammy which was fantastic.  I made a shorter film about his American landing with Hendrix playing at Monterrey. I made those two and Voodoo Child [2010].  Jimi Hendrix: Hear My Train A Comin’[2013] was the first time we’d done a traditional documentary which was from birth to death rather than the Woodstock or Monterrey or Fillmore East concerts. This was the full story and I was working on it for 18 months. »

While attending the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival I was keen to see All Is By My Sidewhich chronicled an American backup guitarist travelling to the UK where he is transformed into an international rock star.  Unfortunately, the Jimi Hendrix biopic was undermined by flat performances and an inability to get music rights.  The situation has been rectified by the arrival of the documentary Jimi Hendrix: Hear My Train A Comin’ which was able to gain the cooperation of the Hendrix estate.

If you are expecting an exploration of the dark side of the creative talent who died tragically from a drug overdose at the age of 27, then the cinematic experience assembled by filmmaker Bob Smeaton (The Beatles Anthology) will be a disappointment.  The substance abuse and womanising is mentioned but the focus is squarely on celebrating the man and his obsessive love for music.  With the exception of girlfriend Kathy Etchingham, »
