JIMI HENDRIX, the rock guitarist notorious for his rampant pursuit of women, escaped military service by pretending he was homosexual, according to a new biography.Hendrix told military psychiatrists he had started fantasising about his bunkmates and was in love with one of them, after serving for a year as a paratrooper in the 101st Airborne Division.

What a puss. Although he did go on to make great music.

More like a genious. That is the way to go. Anyone trying to avoid military service should use our governments bigotry as a means to get out of 'serving' our country.

What, and they removed him through fear of rape? Why the hell does being gay qualify you to get out of the US army?

Good for him. Can't say that his method was very honorable, but there was a draft on at the time, and the draft is fucking crap. He did what he had to do. If he didn't, he'd be just another dead dog in the mud in Vietnam, dying for a bullshit war--he was meant for something greater. War should be left for people who can't do anything else but follow orders and shoot people. Right on, Hendrix! :stallard:

As do they in mine. It means they are intelligent, above the game, and know where the governments priorities really are. If I was getting drafted into WWII that would be different, but Vietnam wasn't a just war, nor is Iraq. So if I am trying to get drafted into Iraq or another war in the near future, I will do whatever I have to to avoid service.

If your country is not in direct harm of a invasion, yes I respect anyone whois not willing to fight a rich mans war.

Right on. I heard he got some injury to his foot to get out of it, but proven wrong I am. Good stuff, stick it to the man.
