probably from his first U.S. tour where he was OPENING for The Monkees! Jimi hated it because the crowds were full of kids (Children) and all they wanted to see was The Monkees.

From Wiki...

"The group came to prominence in the US only after the June 1967 Monterey Pop Festival,[11] one of the first major rock music festivals.[6] The band's performance ended with Hendrix famously setting his psychedelically painted Fender Stratocaster on fire.[12] After the festival they were asked to go on tour with the Monkees. They joined the tour on July 8, 1967, in Jacksonville, Florida, the second act on a three-band bill, opened by Lynne Randell. Less than two weeks later, and after only a handful of engagements, they left the tour, reportedly frustrated by audience response. The last Hendrix/Monkees concert was performed at Flushing Meadows in Queens, New York – Chas Chandler later said that it was all a publicity stunt.[13]"

Just wreaks of a clues executive's decision.

Perhaps common knowledge, but Jimi switched guitars at the last minute to burn a lesser instrument.

I obviously don't know my Hendrix facts 'n stats. I just watched a few minutes of Hey Joe from Monterey Pop and it looks like the Strat he played that on was black.

So that picture is proof that Jimi could play a right-handed guitar upside down without restringing it. Ala Albert King
