More than one of Hendrix's songs are sung from the point of view of a man telling a woman that she makes him realise that she's a better person than he is, and that he's not worthy of her love yet but he's working on it, the classic example being "Bold as Love" from Axis: Bold as Love (but "Angel" is another one).

The Beatles released Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band on 1 June 1967. Three days later, Paul McCartney and Brian Epstein went to see The Jimi Hendrix Experience in the Saville Theatre in London. Hendrix opened the concert with the title track of Sgt Pepper, which had been written partly as a deliberate homage to Hendrix's blues-rock style; the album had only been out for three days, but Hendrix was already covering it. McCartney later said that this was "one of the great honours of my career".
