Tish from Toronto, CanadaI heard tell Mick Jagger gave that name to girlfriend Marsha Hunt (mutual friends w/Jimi) as a parody of his own name, that rhymed, as we plainly see. His way of showing off their couple status.
Joel from UsaInteresting to note the varied ideas on how Dolly Dagger was coined...
David from Port Hawkesbury, CanadaThe line "Dolly Dagger, she drinks her blood from a jagged edge." is a reference to Mick Jagger, at one of Hendrix's birthdays, Mick Jagger pricked his finger, and Devon Wilson, in full view of Hendrix rushed over and sucked the blood from his finger, refusing to get him a band-aid until the bleeding subsided.
Stefanie from Rock Hill, ScI think this song is also on the Jimi Hendricks album released a few years ago. I think the name of the album is First Rays of the New Rising Sun.
