Iconic rock guitarist Jimi Hendrix, of "Foxy Lady" fame, purportedly is the subject of a sex tape scheduled for release, the tape's U.S. distributor says.
The film shows a naked man resembling Hendrix, who died in 1970, wearing a bandanna in his Afro while engaging in sexual activity with two brunettes in a dimly lit bedroom, The New York Times reported Tuesday.
Vivid Entertainment, a player in the pornographic film industry, said it created the 45-minute DVD "Jimi Hendrix the Sex Tapes," combining 11 minutes of sexually-oriented footage with a retrospective of the Hall of Famer's career in the 1960s without music. Hendrix was 27 when he died from a drug-related cause.
Whether the man on film is actually Hendrix is subject to debate. Vivid Entertainment officials in Los Angeles said they authenticated the tape.
"I believe that we did our due diligence, and as a result of that clearly believe that it's him," said Steven Hirsch, Vivid's co-chairman. "If they said that it wasn't him, I would never have put it out."
Fans say facial features, rings seen in the film and the hair discount that it's Hendrix.
A spokesperson for Hendrix' estate did not comment.
