marc shapiro cover of book hey joe when I knew, in March 2019, the existence of Marc Shapiro's book about Hey Joe (issued in 2016), of course I bought it and surprise,
my name is quoted on page VII and is quoted on page 142 as well as the website of my Dutch friend Jan Marius Franzen: page 148. I thank you Marc for your very interesting book.

Marc write page VII: There’s this guy in France named Christian Arnould, who also lives and breathes Hey Joe, to the extent that he has made it his life’s work to dig up the most obscure international Hey Joe 45’s, bootlegs and everything else on the planet. His contributions alone bumped my list of Hey Joe covers to well over 2000 and counting.

Marc write page 142: continues to dig deep. Updated on a regular basis, the dedicated website, run with passion by the enthusiastic and possessed Christian Arnould, continues to discover and report obscurities. In 2015 alone, easily a dozen recorded takes, everything from jazz, to solo acoustic, to rock and pop and back again were dutifully reported for the first time.

UPDATED in 2018

In 2017, my Dutch friend Jan Marius Franzen informed me of the death of Billy Roberts.
Billy Roberts was credited for writing Hey Joe, which he copyrighted in 1962.
William Moses "Billy" Roberts Jr., born August 16, 1936 in Greenville, South Carolina, deceased on October 7, 2017 in Georgia, United States.
Billy Roberts never, to my knowledge, recorded Hey Joe in studio, he played it in Clubs, including 1987 at Bouncer's in San Francisco with Summer Of Love All Stars, with John Cipollina


Tim Rose / Jimi Hendrix
Tim Rose is the first performer to have sung hey joe that I call "hendrix cover". I chose Jimi Hendrix for my titles because it is the best known version.
Jimi Hendrix heard hey joe by Tim Rose at Cafe Wah? in New York, probably in 1965 since Jimi Hendrix already played hey joe at Cafe Wah? in early 1966, before leaving for England and recording his version inspired by that of Tim Rose. For that I chose to add Tim Rose next to Jimi Hendrix in my titles.

Slavko sent me the scans of the Swedish single Hey Joe of Wilson Pickett. I shall update the Wilson Pickett's page in January or February 2019.
I thank Slavko, Mislav and Robert very much.
