Jason Derulo & Harvey Make a Hendrix Connection

7/12/2011 3:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Singer Jason Derulo wanted to play Jimi Hendrix in an upcoming movie -- and Harvey saw Jimi in concert back in the '60s! That's so cool ... someone just HAD to flex his pecs to celebrate.

No. Just NO. He's not close to Jimi. Different shades of skin...

Harvey is old if he saw a concert in the 60's.

If Harvey saw Jimi in the 60's, that would make him at least in his 60's, cause, I was born in '65, and I'm 46.

On the show Harvey said he saw Jimi Hendrix with Janis Joplin at the Hollywood Bowl.

Problem is, according to hollywoodbowl.com, Jimi Hendrix never played on the same bill with Janis Joplin. Not once.

Me thinks Harvey's either making stuff up or old age is setting in.

Why have a singer play a guitarist who could not sing? As a vocalist, Hendrix was TERRIBLE. And he knew it. But if Dylan, who was no singer, could make records as a vocalist, why not Jimi...

that's ridiculous Hendrix and Joplin for free? at the hollywood bowl?
Anyone that knows a thing about music is jealous. If your not it's pretty safe to say your opinion on music is invalid.
Jimi and Janis? Wow

I'm trying to visualize Harvey in tie-dye and a bandanna laced with LSD tied around his forehead.

Hmmm... what about a matching feather boa?

Leave Harvey alone. If he wants to flex his pecs, let him flex them whenever he wants.

PLEASE DO NOT EVER MENTION THOSE TWO NAMES IN THE SAME SENTENCE.

ONE WAS A LEFT HANDED LEGEND AND ONE JUST SINGS HIS NAME LIKE AN IDIOT.

YOU OWE JIMI AN APOLOGY.

Hendrix NEVER played any dates with Janis Joplin ANYWHERE
much less the Hollywood Bowl. He did play the Bowl twice.
On September 18,1967 he appeared there with The Mamas and the Papas. He played there a year later on September 14, 1968 with
The Vanilla Fudge. Take my word for it. I have been collecting and researching Hendrix for over 40 years. I have the real facts here. Check out my Hendrix tribute website at

As for Harvey's comments, he might really believe he saw the show he claims. Like they say, "If you remember the 60s....
YOU WEREN'T THERE ! (must have been some good stuff he was smoking)....I'm just sayin'
