Jimi Hendrix is arguably the best rock guitarist of all time. He was also an amazing performer, something which is often overlooked. This site is dedicated to the stage banter Jimi Hendrix would often engage in, making his live performances truly unique.

Yes, as I said before... (Like a Rolling Stone, Monterey)

This is also from "Like a Rolling Stone" from Monterey, where Jimi continues his intro:

Like a Rolling Stone intro continued mp3

He says:

"Yes as I said before, it's really groovy. I'd like to bore you for about six or seven minutes, and do a little thing uh. Yeah. Excuse me for a minute, just let me play my guitar, alright? Right now I'd like to do a little thing uh by Bob Dylan. That's his grandmother over there. It's a little thing called 'Like a Rolling Stone.'"

What I don't understand is why does he say Bob Dylan's grandmother is "over there". I guess the most obvious answer would be that she WAS, but does anybody know any details about that?

Jimi jokingly called bassist Noel Redding "Bob Dylan's grandmother," maybe because he looked like an elderly, female version of Dylan.

It sounds more like he's saying "I'd like to borrow you for a bout six or seven minutes" to me, instead of "I'd like to bore you for about six or seven minutes".
Yes, he called Noel Redding "Bob Dylan's Grandmother" and he called Mitch Mitchell "Queen Bee". I'm guessing he was stoned when he came up with those names?
