Funny in retrospect, but I'm with Ike on this one - if I'm the band leader and I ask you to do something and you don't, you're not in my band either. (Good thing I'm primarily a solo act these days ;-) )

Probably best for all of us that Jimi was fired. Seems to me that a lot of great musicians were fired by Ronnie Hawkins too.

I think Ike is FOS,not about firing him but because of the reason he fired him.
Wasn't Jimi gone from Ike's band before the wah wah was even introduced ?
There simply weren't any pedals (or precious few)around at that time.

He would have kept me on.:)

Wait...Ike had an ego ?!?!:D
And a bad temper. He beat one Tina Turner a number of times. She should have left him long before she did.
