Hendrix Burns Guitar At Monterey

One of the most classic images in rock, Jimi Hendrix setting fire to his guitar is interpreted as many things; a sacrifice to the gods, a symbolic destruction of everything that has gone before. What we do know is that Wild Thing beforehand sounds incredible, too.

Best bit: When he picks up the flaming guitar and for a minute you think 'hang on, he's not going to play that now, is he?' Wouldn't have put it past him.
