The case concerns the will of Jimi's father Al Hendrix

The case, the latest of several, concerns the last will of Jimi's father, Al Hendrix
, who inherited the rights to Jimi's music when the rock star died in 1970.
Once the Hendrix family was granted rights to the recordings, the first thing Al Hendrix
, Jimi's father, and Hendrix-Wright did was ask Kramer and Hendrix archivist John McDermott to track down and recover the original master tapes.
The day in April of 1993 when a touring art show that featured representations of Hendrix's image, entitled "The Jimi Hendrix Exhibition," opened at a gallery in New York City's Soho district, Al Hendrix
, his father, launched a lawsuit against the organizers of the show, who control the Hendrix Estate and who are also therefore the "legal" owners of Jimi Hendrix - all he had produced, including his image.
Jimi's Dad, Al Hendrix
, often expressed his desire to loan and display these items in Seattle.
