Jimi had many talents. Water skiing was not one of them. According to Jon Roberts' 'American Desperado', he almost once died in a accident at sea. "Jimi's out there – no life vest on – and he falls off the skis. He's in the water thrashing around... Suddenly, I'm wondering if he can even swim. I had some good times with Jimi, but he was a disaster on water skis."
