 Jimi Hendrix and Miles Davis were making plans to record together in 1969.  Legend has it that Hendrix and Davis were hoping that Paul McCartney would join them on bass.  A telegram was sent to Apple Records on Oct. 21, 1969.

The note read "We are recording and LP together this weekend in NewYork." "How about coming in to play bass stop call Alvan Douglas . Peace Jimi Hendrix Miles Davis Tony Williams."

It's unclear if McCartney was aware of the request.  Beatles aide Peter Brown responded the next day, telling Hendrix and Davis that McCartney was out on vacation and wasn't expected back for two weeks.
