Jimi Hendrix's performance at The Monterey Pop Festival on June 18, 1967 is widely regarded as the seminal moment of his career, having made a name for himself among the Rock & Roll elite in London in the previous months. The band played several of their new songs along with four popular covers and at the end of his performance, he stunned the audience by setting his guitar on fire and tossing the bits into the crowd.
About this shot Jim Marshall has said, "I was right up close to him. I don't know if it was planned but a few numbers before the end he says to me, "You got plenty of film left?" I said I did and he just told me to get ready, he didn't say shit but I was ready and he set fire to the f**king guitar. The crowd went wild it was f**king incredible."
