Musical icons unleash their on-stage personas to the fullest extent for throngs of rabid fans. However, those same larger-than-life characters often act very differently behind the scenes. Whether it's quietly chumming it up with fellow celebrities or releasing their inner child remnants in zany ways, even musical legends act silly.

In a combination that, on the surface, went together like oil and water, Jimi Hendrix and the Monkees went on tour together in ‘67. The Monkees who represented the innocent, clean-cut side of music obviously clashed with the debaucherous styling of Young Jimmy. In what seems slightly ridiculous today, Jimi opened for the Monkees and not the other way around. It didn’t help matters that Hendrix called their music “dishwater.” He only lasted eight tour stops before walking off stage in Queens, New York.
