Jimi Hendrix Was a Badass

Jimi Hendix Experience

“Not Necessarily Stoned, but…Beautiful…”

On This Date, July 8th, in 1967: The Monkees kicked off their U.S. tour in Jacksonville, Florida with the Jimi Hendrix Experience as their support act. Hendrix would be dropped from the bill after eight concerts. I think we can guess why. This story reminds me also of a concert-going memory my older sister shared with me, of seeing The Who open for Herman’s Hermits. The Sixties, what a crazy time!
