Keith Richards and Brian Jones wrote Ruby Tuesday,
about Linda, missing her.
Goodbye, Ruby Tuesday
Who could hang a name on you?
When you change with every new day
Still I’m gonna miss you…

In 1966 Linda had met Jimi Hendrix at the Cheetah Club in New York.
She brought Jimi in contact with Chas Chandler (The Animals)
who helped Jimi putting together The Expierence
(Mitch Mitchell and Noel Redding).
With her Jimi took the first LSD-trip. He remembered:
“I looked into the mirror and thought I was Marilyn Monroe.”
