MeaningEdit

"Manic depression" is a slang name for Bipolar disorder, a category of mood disorders which involve abnormally elevated and depleted mood swings. Manic depressives, if their conditions worsens significantly, can also suffer hallucinations and delusions. It is unknown if Jimi was ever manic depressive, though the idea for the song comes from a press reception in which manager Chas Chandler referred to Jimi as such.[1]
