Jimi Hendrix Album Banned in Malaysia

Posted June 12th, 2014 @ 2:27pm

Jimi Hendrix album Axis: Bold As Love.. just now banned in Malaysia for featuring the image of Lord Vishnu. The covers displays Hendrix and his band as various forms of Lord Vishnu a Hindu deity. The Home Ministry's Publication Control said they will prohibit the album cover from coming into the country and will seize them. They did say they don't care how they come in, they just cant have that cover.

Funny thing is Jimi was not happy with the cover himself and at the time he stated "the three of us have nothing to do with whats on the cover." He had wanted a Native American motif because he maternal grandmother was a Cherokee.
