Hendrix performed at the Monterey International Pop Festival on March 31st 1967. For his finale, Jimi Hendrix squirted lighter fluid onto his Stratocaster, smashed it, and set it on fire. Photos taken by Jim Marshall, made Hendrix an international icon. The photos later made Hendrix’s album covers and Rolling Stones put it on the cover for its 20th anniversary issue.
