Jimi Hendrix Sued by Former Collaborator


Jimi Hendrix Sued by Former Collaborator


Beside Jimi Hendrix's estate, the lawsuit filed by Lonnie Youngblood also mentions MCA Records and Martin Scorsese.

The estate of guitar legend Jimi Hendrix has been hit with a lawsuit from the rocker's former collaborator, who claims one of his tracks was included on a tribute compilation without permission. Lonnie Youngblood befriended Hendrix in the late 1960s and the pair recorded several songs together before the star's death in 1970.

One of the tracks, "Georgia Blues", was included on 2003 compilation "Martin Scorsese Presents The Blues: Jimi Hendrix", a soundtrack to accompany a documentary film series by the legendary director. Youngblood alleges he was not asked for permission to include the track on the album and was not credited as a creator of the track, which he claims he released on the internet and copyrighted in 2002.

He recently filed a lawsuit against Hendrix's estate, as well as MCA Records and Scorsese, seeking unspecified damages for lost income, according to the Associated Press. In the papers, Youngblood claims he refused an offer of $3,000 by a lawyer for Hendrix's estate - and he's determined to win the case.

The 68 year old says, "It's the principle. I want my song back. They had no right to take my song."
