    Jimi Hendrix Signed Letter. A rare typed letter, dated January 15, 1970, to signed by Hendrix in black ballpoint. It reads: "Dear Michael: This letter will serve as authorization to pay to Billy Cox all salary and expenses to date plus 1 week salary in lieu of notice and also $1,000.00 as a bonus for his services. Yours faithfully, Jimi Hendrix." Cox, an old Army buddy, played bass for Hendrix in Band of Gypsys, and also for him at Woodstock and on the Cry of Love Tour. Said tour would be Hendrix's last before his untimely death in September 1970. A wonderful piece of Hendrix history from a musical turning point in his career. The letter is in Very Good condition with water damage along the left edge, especially prevalent near the bottom, mild discoloration, and one bisecting vertical and three horizontal fold creases that run through but do adversely not affect the signature. With COA from PSA/DNA.
