Jimi Hendrix's sister promises 'another decade of previously unreleased music'
Jimi Hendrix's sister has stated that there is still "another decade" of unreleased music and video to come from the guitarist.

Janie Hendrix, also president and CEO of Experience Hendrix and Authentic Hendrix (the companies that deal with his legacy), revealed that she wants to release new material every 12 to 18 months for the next ten years.

"We probably have another decade of music, including video. Every 12 to 18 months we'll continue to have new releases and Dagger [Experience Hendrix's label for live recordings] official bootlegs," she told Gibson.

"Jimi was a workaholic. After Electric Lady studios was built he was able to record constantly for as many hours as he wanted to. It's almost as if he knew he had only four years to accomplish everything that he did. We have an amazing amount of original masters, including a lot of material that hasn't been previously released."

Hendrix added that the tapes featuring the unreleased material are currently stored in two separate locations in the US.

"We keep them in a temperature-controlled vault. We have a set of everything in Los Angeles and a set in New York in the event of something catastrophic happening. We have duplicates of everything."

Hendrix was talking to Gibson, who are launching a new line of Jimi Hendrix model guitars.

She also revealed that "a whole line of Jimi-inspired instruments" is currently being lined up alongside the Flying V signature model.
