About the image
Ed Caraeff's unforgettable shot of Jimi Hendrix burning his guitar at the 1967 Monterey Pop Festival is considered one of the most iconic rock and roll photographs ever taken. 

Hendrix's performance propelled him to instant global fame and remains one of the seminal moments in his short but brilliant career. 

Originally shot on black & white film, Jann Wenner got Ed's "OK" to colorize it for the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine in 1987 for the 20th anniversary of the legendary festival that introduced Hendrix to the world. Ed has subsequently redone the color himself for these pieces.
