McFarlane : Jimi Hendrix @ Monterey Pop Festival
« on: August 6, 2004, 03:02 AM »
Monterey Pop Festival, 1967 : Jimi Hendrix torches his guitar!

After a strong performance at the Monterey Pop Festival, Hendrix ended his performance by spraying lighter fluid all over his Fender Stratocaster and setting it ablaze. He put on quite a show, raising the burning instrument above his head, then dropping to his knees to... well... worship the guitar gods or something. I read somewhere that Hendrix claimed to have had something of a love/hate relationship with his guitars... Whatever the reasoning behind it all (I'm guessing the acid may have something to do with it), hate never looked so cool.

Click here for all of the details of the toy itself, although not much is said just yet... it's slated for an October '04 release - thank god for McFarlane... I'm loving these Hendrix figures!
