Jimi Hendrix, Monterey Pop Soundcheck 1967

By Jim Marshall
About the image

One of Jim Marshall's most iconic shots, Jimi Hendrix strikes a classic pose at soundcheck for the Monterey Pop Festival, 1967.

"This shot was taken during a sound check at the Monterey Pop Festival, 1967. Hendrix was playing to an empty arena -- or, more accurately, to himself...for some reason everyone was at dinner except Al Kooper, Jimi's band and crew, and some of the other stage-hands. I approached Jimi and told him my name was Jim Marshall -- that I was one of the photographers. He made some comment like, "Far out, man, maybe this shit is supposed to be," and I asked what he meant. He said that the dude who made his amps was named Jim Marshall, and smart-ass me says, "Yeah , I know that." But then he said, "What you don't know is that my middle name is Marshall." (quoted from Jim's book Not Fade Away (1997), p 28)
