    'Cuse me while I kiss this guy

    Artist: Jimi Hendrix
    Song: Purple Haze
    Real Lyric: 'Cuse me while I kiss thr sky

    The story:

    I was lucky enough to see Hendrix live while I was in college. I saw him at Charlotte Coliseum-May 9, 1969.

    During "Purple Haze" -that I did assume WAS "kiss the sky" - Jimi said "kiss this GUY" and clearly pointed to his right at Noel Redding. My roomate and I both (totally sober) freaked out and made permanent mental notes of this moment-not just the moment but that we had seen him LIVE.

    I hate to "blow" the concept that your site's name uses this as its "signature" misheard, but I can **sure you that, in fact, it is NOT a "misheard" but what he REALLY said.

    Love the site.

    I saw Jimi on Feb. 24 , 1968 at the CNE Coliseum in Toronto and he performed the 'Purple Haze' line in exactly the same way "lumberjack" describes. Jimi sang "kiss this guy" , and as he sang it he gestured toward Noel Redding with a wry smile. This line stood out because I was singing along to myself at the time and noticed Jimi sang it differently. I did go home wondering what was the original line. On "Experienced' I hear "kiss the sky" and have come to assume Jimi found something in the song to play with, and first recorded it "kiss the sky" but then went on to play with the line, introducing new ideas and meanings, just as Leonard Cohen has continued to play with or change lyrics after making the first recording of a song. Artist's songs are not etched in stone but are more like castles made of sand. My 2 cents Gusto68
