As the 1960s turned to the 1970s, Jimi Hendrix set up shop at the Fillmore East in New York City with Band of Gypsys. Just a few months after his earthshaking appearance at Woodstock, the legendary guitarist formed a new trio with drummer Buddy Miles and bassist Billy Cox that debuted with four shows: two on New Year’s Eve on Dec. 31, 1969, and two more on New Year’s Day on Jan. 1, 1970.
