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.

Jacob Shelton is a Los Angeles based writer. For some reason this was the most difficult thing he’s written all day, and here’s the kicker – his girlfriend wrote the funny part of that last sentence. As for the rest of the bio? That’s pure Jacob, baby. He’s obsessed with the ways in which singular, transgressive acts have shaped the broader strokes of history, and he believes in alternate dimensions, which means that he’s great at a dinner party. When he’s not writing about culture, pop or otherwise, he’s adding to his found photograph collection and eavesdropping on strangers in public.
