JIMI HENDRIX Lost Welsh Anthem A Hoax

BBC News reports that an electric recording of the Welsh anthem found on a tape from the '70s was not performed by Jimi Hendrix.

The owner of the tape, Martin Davies, admitted he had propagated the myth for fun.

Mr. Davies admitted he persuaded a friend who formed a '70s punk band to play a Hendrix-style version of the anthem.

"I could be accused of hoaxing but it was only a bit of fun. A lot of people had a lot of fun with it," he said.

Davies' friend John Ellis — who formed the VIBRATORS then went on to play with the STRANGLERS, PETER GABRIEL and many others — performed "Land of My Fathers".
