-- His former manager is alleged to have said, "I killed my friend" and is said to have personally shoved the pills and wine into Jimi's mouth. Well, Jimi was a big dude and I don't think anyone was going to force him two swallow nine barbituates and two bottles of wine, and even if they did, Monica Danneman was there all night. Also, you know, the person that makes these claims just happened to write a book about it after the manager died.
Unfortunately, there's more to it than that. I'm involved in researching this and scan the internet for comments. Your theory is flawed because the data proves Jimi had 3.9mg barbiturate % of blood in him at his autopsy, which means he was provably unconscious when the wine was introduced. The opposite is actually true, and I've never seen anyone who doubts
the murder evidence present any legitimate input.
Jimi was most-likely set-up by an intel black-op where the most powerful sleeping pills on the market were introduced into his environment by an intel infiltrator girlfriend. His manager Michael Jeffery was British Intelligence MI-6 trained and would be privy to such tactics. As is true today, waterboarding was a military intelligence practice and when used for assassination would leave no marks on the body and appear as a drug overdose that would be announced as such in the media.
The man who made the claim is Tappy Wright. Tappy Wright worked in Michael Jeffery's management office and was a trusted friend of Jeffery's. Jeffery confided in him because Tappy was deep enough into Jeffery's money-laundering and mafia loans to be considered an insider who wouldn't talk. Tappy didn't talk for 40 years, so Jeffery was right. Tappy wrote the book 36 years after Jeffery died.

You have no idea how wrong you are on that. Research into COINTELPRO is not limited to "tweaked-out hippies". As Constantine showed Jimi had a lengthy FBI file. FBI was going nuts over the Black Panthers and running some very dirty covert programs against all radicals -especially black leaders that could be associated with the Panthers. Right after Jimi had a lengthy entry in his FBI file mentioning Panther and Chicago 7 involvement he experienced a strange heroin bust at Toronto Airport customs. A pill bottle containing plastic packets of heroin was right on top of his clothes when they opened his bag. The more you study FBI/CIA operations CHAOS and COINTELPRO the more Jimi Hendrix's problems conform to the written purpose of those programs. Including his death. What you don't understand is that intel had gone so cowboy that it didn't matter if Jimi was overtly political or not.

It is possible intel was decapitating a movement like a domestic Phoenix Program. But just stick to Hendrix.

I don't think there's any real evidence that this is anything more than one of the greatest tragedies in music...a tired, wounded man tries to take a break and he accidentally passes away.
Actually the forensic evidence that the British Government never bothered to process proves
murder. Jimi had a level of barbiturate in him at the autopsy that proves beyond a doubt he had to be unconscious at the time the wine was introduced into his lungs. The autopsy evidence proves beyond a doubt that there was too little blood alcohol content (5mg per 100ml) to allow any non-murder explanation for the wine. If you further investigate all the lies told by the witnesses that morning you'll understand why they lied. They knew Jeffery had murdered Jimi and were afraid to be murdered themselves. This explains why the British Government lied in their pretend re-investigation in 1993. When Jimi's girlfriend Monika Dannemann was finally forced to tell the truth she was found dead in her Mercedes from car fumes.
