Australia Star David Gulpilil Didn't Know Jimi Hendrix Was Dead
by Staff

Australia star David Gulpilil leads such a remote life in the Australian outback, he has only just discovered Jimi Hendrix, who he befriended 38 years ago, has died.

The 55-year-old Aborigine has starred in a string of hit Aussie movies since finding fame in 1970 epic Walkabout.

But he still lives deep in the bush, cut off completely from civilisation.

And during a casting meeting for Australia, director Baz Luhrmann was stunned to discover how out of touch Gulpilil really is.

The filmmaker says, "He's quite mystical. I went to see him and he said, 'Baz. That fellow I played didgeridoo with all those years ago. Jimi Hendrix. Is he still around?'

"He had no idea."

Hendrix died in London in 1970, shortly after his meeting with Gulpilil. (c) WENN
