yep, the helicopter, machine gun and bomb dropping effects he gets out of that stratocaster (at about 2"21') still do more than Country Joe and the Fish every time.

Yes no doubt that Jimi supported the black panthers eg. see "On the Band of Gypsys live album Live at the Fillmore East, Hendrix refers to the song as the Black Panthers' national anthem".

I believe he donated 100 joints to the Black Panthers. Perhaps a bit of cash. Jimi was into his guitar, getting stoned, and Pussy.
I saw him live and he was on top of his game. The last time was just three months before his death.
I heard a story once the Nixon was afraid if him and had him aquire seconol they had been tampered with. No matter he is still gone.
