Jimi Hendrix performs with the Gypsy Sun and Rainbows at the Woodstock Festival on Monday, August 18, 1969.
"By early Monday, Jimi's set was nearly a day late. Over night, the crowd was 10% of the half million who had found their way to the Woodstock site. Jimi rallied. He was out to show the best would be last; a big job considering those before him. The Star Spangled Banner & Purple Haze rang out at dawn across the meadows & the world.
Though his Star Spangled Banner was distasteful to some, the magic of Jimi's guitar was resonant with sounds of war - rallying the Vietnam protestors at this unique Festival of Peace & Love. The legacy of Jimi Hendrix at Woodstock lives today among musicians trying to be like him; not only for his incomparable talent but for his courage to speak through his guitar & his voice at the risk of being misunderstood." - Barry Levine
