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, died 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.

About the Fantastic Dee-Jays, I made big mistake. I wrote the Fantastic Dee-Jay pre Warlocks instead of Fantastic Dee-Jays pre Swamp Rats.
Fortunately my Croatian friend Slavko Mustapić visited my website and wrote me:
in website is an mistake : The Fantastic Dee-Jays are NOT Pre-Warlocks, They are Pre-Swamp Rats..
The error was corrected. Thank you, Slavko
