Jimi Hendrix opening for The Monkees 51 years ago today.
When Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork of The Monkees saw The Jimi Hendrix Experience at the Monterey International Pop Festival in 1967, they decided they wanted The Experience to open for them on their upcoming tour.
July 8, 1967 was the first date of the tour in Jacksonville, FL. Of course Hendrix scared the hell out of the teenyboppers that came to see Davy Jones & Co.
You know we have to ask if any of you were at the Jacksonville Coliseum 51 years ago tonight?
