Jimi Hendrix 1942‐1970
Michael Lydon, The New York Times, 27 September 1970
"I could sit up here all night and say thank you, thank you. thank you, you know... I just want to grab you, man, and just umm kiss you, but, dig, I just can't do that... so what I want to do, I'm going to sacrifice something right here that I really love... don't think I'm silly doing this, cause I don't think I'm losing my mind — last night, ooo whew, but, wait, wait, today I think everything is all right, you know, so I'm not losing my mind. This is just for everybody here, this is the only way I can do it, okay?... Don't get mad, don't get mad, no."
— Jimi Hendrix, before he burned his guitar at the Monterey Pop Festival, June, 1967.
