Jimi Hendrix And Jayne Mansfield: The Untold Story

San Francisco, CA -- When Jimi Hendrix sang "Foxy Lady," he may have been singing about 1960s sex symbol Jayne Mansfield.

Believe it or not, Hendrix actually played bass and lead guitar for Mansfield back in 1965 on two songs: A ballad called "As The Clouds Drift By," and a bump-and-grind number called "Suey."

According to Hendrix historian Steven Roby, author of a new book, "Black Gold: The Lost Archives Of Jimi Hendrix" (Billboard Books), the Jayne-Jimi summit took place because they had the same manager.

The songs were never actually released but Roby says "Suey" features some great Hendrix bass-playing and lyrics like "It makes my liver quiver."

Roby doesn't know if Mansfield and Hendrix collaborated on anything else but the blonde bombshell did attend one of his concerts a few years later. However, she chose to leave with Englebert Humperdinck, not Hendrix.
