The year was 1967 when Jimi Hendrix And The Experience debuted
to an American audience their incredible live show.

Location was set it would be The Monterey County Fairgrounds in Monterey California and all preparations were made with great detail for what the audience would expect and need to enjoy a 3 day concert of some of the best up and coming musical acts.

What no one expected was the blistering performance by Jimi Hendrix, Mitch Mitchell and Noel Redding.

 When Jimi set his guitar on fire at the end of the show there was little doubt in the minds of the audience that they had just witnessed what would become greatness.

Here is Hey Joe from that show with Jimi showing off his skills to a stunned audience.
