4: Case 004: The Spiked Bandana

Did Jimi Hendrix really conceal LSD beneath his famous bandana so that it seeped into his skin to get him high when on stage? It’s a new case for Ricky and Tony as they attempt to open their third eyes on the evidence. As well as being part of his signature look, did the legendary Jimi Hendrix have another use for his bandana? Ricky and Tony receive a tip off that he used to use the headgear to conceal LSD when he played on stage and that it would actually keep him high as it seeped into his forehead. Being committed pop detectives, Ricky and Tony are a bit in the dark when it comes to psychedelics and Tony was out in the North Sea for most of the 60s so have as always enlisted the help of experts in their field.  They chat to Amanda Feilding, founder of psychedelic research group The Beckley Foundation (https://beckleyfoundation.org/) who has spent her life researching drugs about how LSD works (and about the act of trepanation), and Dr Christian Lloyd (https://www.queensu.ca/gazette/media/expert/christian-lloyd) , a Jimi Hendrix academic who knows a thing or two about the great man. There’s a lot to get their heads around with this case but that won’t deter our pop detectives!
