When Jimi Hendrix set his guitar on fire at the Monterey Pop Festival he created one of rock's most perfect moments. Standing in the front row of that concert was a year-old boy named Ed Caraeff.
Caraeff had never seen Hendrix before nor heard his music, but he had a camera with him and there was one shot left in his roll of film. As Hendrix lit his guitar, Caraeff took a final photo.
It would become one of the most famous images in rock and roll. Caraeff stood on a chair next to the edge of the stage and took four monochrome pictures of Hendrix burning his guitar. Rolling Stone later colorized the image, matching it with other pictures taken at the festival before using the shot for a magazine cover.

The scheduled release date for Axis was almost delayed when Hendrix lost the master tape of side one of the LP, leaving it in the back seat of a London taxi. Redding had a tape recording of this mix, which had to be smoothed out with an iron as it had gotten wrinkled. Axis featured psychedelic cover art that depicts Hendrix and the Experience as various avatars of Vishnuincorporating a painting of them by Roger Lawfrom a photo-portrait by Karl Ferris.

A legal dispute arose in regarding a record contract that Hendrix had entered into the previous year with producer Ed Chalpin.
Hendrix decided that they would record the LP, Band of Gypsysduring two live appearances. Hendrix had been recording with Cox since April and jamming with Miles since September, and the trio wrote and rehearsed material which they performed at a series of four shows over two nights on December 31 and January 1, at the Fillmore East. They used recordings of these concerts to assemble the LP, which was produced by Hendrix.

On September 2,he abandoned a performance in Aarhus after three songs, stating: "I've been dead a long time". Three days after the performance, Cox, who was suffering from severe paranoia after either taking LSD or being given it unknowingly, quit the tour and went to stay with his parents in Pennsylvania.

Hendrix entered a small club in Clarksville, Tennessee, in Julydrawn in by live music. People tell me I get foolish, good-natured sometimes. Anyway, I guess I felt real benevolent that day. I must have been handing out bills to anyone that asked me. I came out of that place with sixteen dollars left. Like most acid-heads, Jimi had visions and he wanted to create music to express what he saw.
He would try to explain this to people, but it didn't make sense because it was not linked to reality in any way.

One of Keith's friends offered Hendrix acida street name for LSD, but Hendrix asked for LSD instead, showing what Cross describes as "his naivete and his complete inexperience with psychedelics".
When Hendrix drank to excess or mixed drugs with alcohol, often he became angry and violent. In Januarythe Experience travelled to Sweden to start a one-week tour of Europe.
