Summary Jimi Hendrix burst onto the American music scene at the Monterey Pop Festival in June 1967, captivating the audience with a performance of "Wild Thing." Both musically and literally incendiary, the song ended with Hendrix pouring lighter fluid over his guitar and setting it on fire. Pyrotechnics aside, why is the guitarist still revered 40 years after his death?
