60 Unedited Groovy Photographs
Jimi Hendrix playing guitar in a hotel room with Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork of The Monkees, when he toured with them in 1967.
For a very brief period of time Jimi Hendrix and The Experience was the opening act for The Monkees. Let that sink in - if you were a young person going to see your favorite TV band of mop top cuties play “Daydream Believer” in 1967 you had your mind blown by a guitar god working at the heigh of his prowess.
Even though the sound of Hendrix and The Monkees couldn’t be further apart, they were all buddies. It only took seven dates for Hendrix to drop off the tour, but he continued hanging out with Tork at his home whenever he was back in California.
