Down at Monterey. Jimi's there for what will prove to be his breakthrough appearance at Monterey Pop, and his friend Brian will introduce him onstage.

Is that a Budweiser?Sure looks like one. Which just proves that Brian Jones was so dedicated to getting fucked up that he'd even resort to American beer for the purpose.

The good old days before aluminum cans... Back then, American beer was all there was, in America!

Steel beer cans!Back then to crush one by hand was a macho show of strength. In some circumstances it could provoke a fight.

Ah, to be young again.

At least in Canada you could occasionally get a nice glass of draft Bass.

Fantastic pic. Poor old Brian.

I was fortunate enough to get to know Denny Doherty a little bit, and had some great stories about Monterey. His description of listening to Hendrix and Townshend jam backstage is the memory of his that stands out most in my mind.
