In the "Fall Tour 80" program , there are lyrics printed that I've never heard on this tune;<br><br>" Why Jimi did you get so wasted that you strangled on your vomit . If you would have stayed alive just a little bit longer we would have liked it , Then if strangling on vomit was your idea of a neat way to die, Then you could have strangled on ours"<br> and<br>"And go to a Concert and get trampled to death when we watch the Who."<br>Does anyone know of any recordings with these lyrics?<br>Thanks

Never heard of these lyrics before, they are funny though...<br>Are they actually FZ-redefined/rewritten lyrics ?????<br>Does anybody now. How about you Josh????<br>You seem to be THE ultimate walking FZ-encyclopedia....
