A new documentary called The Redding Experience, featuring the late Noel Redding, is set for a December 6 release date, according to antimusic.com. The DVD will include a never before seen interview with the bassist, who was part of the Jimi Hendrix Experience, filmed in 1988 in his home in Ireland. During the interview, Redding opens up about his time with Hendrix, as well as the theory of the guitar legend’s murder, which Redding deemed “not improbable.”
Producer Will Scally shares the film’s background:
“I had known and been friends with Noel for many years and always found him a very upfront, straightforward guy. We often spoke about doing an interview, he wanted to speak about the band, money, drugs and the death of Hendrix and much more – even speaking about the possibility of Hendrix being murdered. He was on good form that day and wanted to record this for posterity.”
After his time with Hendrix, Redding spent time on his own projects, including a book, Are You Experienced: The Inside Story of the Jimi Hendrix Experience.
Redding passed away in 2003 at the age of 57.
