Trivia

Although they declined the invitation to perform because they had sworn off touring permanently, all four Beatles were on the festival's board of directors. George Harrison had helped recommend 'Ravi Shankar (I)', and Paul McCartney had pushed for the organizers to sign Jimi Hendrix, who was unknown in the United States at the time. See more »

So THATS what that footage was all about?
12 January 2005 | by (Vancouver) – See all my reviews

Although I'm not the greatest Hendrix fan in the world. This concert footage IS pretty amazing. We start with an AMAZING painting being done by a street artist of Hendrix, a little background, then finally, his performance at Monterey which proceeded to blow everybody away. His guitar playing is absolutely ridiculous, and it comes down to the finale, where WHOOSH! The guitar is in flames! and BANG! The guitar goes into a million pieces. I actually felt bad for the guitar, because such a piece of history to go to waste (actually, some pieces are in the experience Museum in Seattle). This is a great concert film for anyone, as I really enjoyed it.
