Upper Cut Club's Purple Haze



Upper Cut Club's Purple Haze

This is where Jimi Hendrix wrote Purple Haze.

Location: 1-39 Woodgrange Lane, Forest Gate

Description: In December 1966 legendary guitarist Jimi Hendrix wrote Purple Haze in the Upper Cut Club, owned by Douglas Bayle and George and Billy Walker, it had been opened by The Who, and had The Small Faces as the house band, for a while.

It later became the Ace of Clubs in Woodgrange Road. It is now inaccessible - but a grey plaque adorns the access gates.

The story goes that, while tuning up backstage on Boxing Day 1966, Hendrix's manager and producer, Chas Chandler,
overheard Hendrix play the Purple Haze riff. He ordered him to write the rest of that! and Hendrix wrote the lyrics of the infamous song in the dressing room there that very day.

Purple Haze was then recorded at De Lane Lea studios in Soho a fortnight later.
