• Leonard Nimoy talks about meeting Jimi Hendrix

    Updated:

    The Los Angeles Times’ Hero Complex posted an interview Wednesday with Leonard Nimoy, in which the actor talks about a meeting he had with Jimi Hendrix in 1970, shortly before Hendrix’s death.

    Nimoy said at the time, he had just released an album – yes, Mr. Spock had a singing career – and was at a dinner in his honor.

    “During the course of the evening, somebody came to me and said, ‘Jimi Hendrix is in the next room. He heard you were here, he would like to come and say hello,’” Nimoy told the Times. “I thought about it for a nanosecond, and I said ‘bring him in.’”

    The conversation about Hendrix takes places at about 10 minutes and 17 seconds into the video:
