Jimi Hendrix Breaks Out in America, Covers Bob Dylan

We take you back to 1967, to the three-day Monterey Pop Festival in California, which was kind of a precursor to the Woodstock Festival held in 1969. Monterey marked, among other things, the first major American appearances by Jimi Hendrix and The Who. Above, we give you Hendrix covering Bob Dylan’s anthem Like a Rolling Stone. And here, we have Wild Thing, which ends famously in Hendrix adding fire to his best imitation of Pete Townshend. Great vintage clips which you’ll find in our YouTube favorites.
