Jimi Hendrix Purple Haze T-Shirt


"Purple Haze" is a song written and recorded by Jimi Hendrix in the late sixties, and was released as the second single for The Jimi Hendrix Experience."Purple Haze" has become one of the "archetypical psychedelic drug songs of the sixties".

When Hendrix was asked how he came up with the song, he said "I dream a lot and I put a lot of my dreams down as songs,", "I wrote one called 'First Around the Corner' and another called 'The Purple Haze', which was all about a dream I had that I was walking under the sea.".

The term "purple haze" has also been used to refer to LSD, due to one form sold in purple capsules.

Hendrix also stated that the phrase "Purple Haze", was used partially in reference to a sci-fi story entitled "Night of Light" by Philip José Farmer. In it, "purple haze" is used to describe a disorienting effect of sunspot activities on the inhabitants of a planet called Dante's Joy.
