Spelling of last name[edit]

Joheadblues just revised this article, replacing every instance of “Jeffrey” with “Jeffery”. I had never considered that the last name might be misspelled, so I went looking for verification. I went to my local bookstore and checked out the music section. There were two books on Hendrix, one of which was:

  • Lawrence, Sharon (April 2006). Jimi Hendrix: The Intimate Story of a Betrayed Musical Legend. ISBN 006056301X. 

(I failed to take good notes, and I can't figure out the identity of the other one.) Both books used the spelling “Michael Jeffery”. I am therefore going to presume that “Jeffery” is the correct spelling and move this article.

There is a link to a whole bunch of information about Jeffery at this link [1] I have no idea of the veracity of the information myself, but it seems plausible. Pouru 11:22, 24 October 2007 (UTC)

Nationality?[edit]

Was he British or American? I just dug around and couldn't find any info on the Web. Samuel Webster (talk) 18:15, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

Factual Errors[edit]

Was Jeffery Jewish?[edit]

I'd like to know. He was an associate of Don Arden who was Jewish.

...or are such questions allowed?

WP:UNDUE[edit]

It'd be a shame if the unproven and unprovable murder allegation overwhelmed this article. I recognise that BLP is not a factor here but WP:NPOV definitely is. --John (talk) 22:51, 20 February 2014 (UTC)

I came across this article yesterday having GA reviewed Canadian drug charges and trial of Jimi Hendrix and remarked that while getting articles to GA and FA is great, sometimes it might be preferable to have a better average quality of articles on a topic, and cited this and Chas Chandler as examples. I'm sure the regular Hendrix editors can whip this into shape - I personally don't have any decent sources to hand. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 09:44, 21 February 2014 (UTC)
Jeffrey was an elusive figure that the reliable Hendrix sources don't say much about. Its my understanding that there are only a few pictures of him and that most of his life is shrouded in mystery if not myth. Based on the little that I do know about him, I seriously doubt that this article could be expanded to GA level, but the nonsense about his having murdered Hendrix is at best a matter for WP:FRINGE.

I wasn't thinking of even going that far - just C class would do for now. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 07:42, 19 March 2014 (UTC)
