46 YEARS AGO: JIMI HENDRIX JOINS MONKEES TOUR
by Dave Swanson July 8, 2013


...



What do you get when you cross a psychedelic guitar genius with one of the world’s bestselling pop bands? A frustrated guitarist, a disappointed band and a bewildered and confused audience.

As unlikely as the match-up sounds, the Jimi Hendrix Experience joined the Monkees during the summer of 1967 for a short run of concerts. The rising guitarist joined the tour on its first date in Jacksonville, Fla., on July 8, and stuck it out for six more shows, exiting after a run of three concerts at the Forest Hills Tennis Stadium in New York City on July 14, 15 and 16.

Both Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork had attended the Monterey International Pop Festival in June and saw Hendrix’s groundbreaking performance. Like everyone else, they were knocked out. “Micky said, ‘We gotta get this guy,’” recalled Tork in the documentary ‘The Monkees Story.’ “Micky was just enthusiastic about his music.”

“You can’t imagine what it must have been like for an act like Jimi Hendrix opening for the Monkees,” Dolenz wrote in his autobiography ‘I’m a Believer.’ “It was evident from the start that we were witness to a rare and phenomenal talent. I would stand in the wings and watch and listen in awe.”

Tales from the tour reveal that everyone involved got along great. “He was such a sweet guy,” said Tork. “It was really just a pleasure to have him around for company.” But the group’s young audiences, as well as their parents who often accompanied them at shows, didn’t feel the same way.

“[The parents] were probably not too crazy about having to sit through a Monkees concert,” said Dolenz, “much lees see this black guy in a psychedelic Day-Glo blouse, playing music from hell, holding his guitar like he was f—ing it, then lighting it on fire … Jimi would amble out onto the stage, fire up the amps and break into ‘Purple Haze,’ and the kids in the audience would instantly drown him out with, ‘We Want Davy!!’ God, it was embarrassing.”

Tork said that “it didn’t cross anybody’s mind that it wasn’t gonna fly.” But rumors began to surface that Hendrix was asked to leave the tour after the Daughters of the American Revolution complained about his “lewd and indecent” conduct during performances.

Legend has it that Hendrix flipped off the audience as he left the stage on that final date. Either way, Hendrix decided enough was enough, and asked to be released from his contract. “I was sorry to see him go,” wrote Dolenz. “We did have some great times, running around the New York City psychedelic scene like kids in a candy store, tripping at the Electric Circus and jamming until all hours of the night in the hotel room.”

Shortly after Hendrix left the tour, both ‘Purple Haze’ and ‘Are You Experienced?’ started to climb the charts, revolutionizing modern music in the process. And in certain parts of the world, the Monkees were viewed with just as much respect. While they were considered mostly a disposable pop band in the U.S., in the U.K. the Monkees were seen in a different, more kaleidoscopic light. A Melody Maker critic wrote about the band’s tour of England in 1967: ”I suddenly realized the Monkees were actually freaking out properly and much better than many of the much vaunted psychedelic groups.”

Well Voodooo I must disagree on a couple of points.

First :"one of the best rock musicians ever " - for me Jimi was much more than that - he was the most important (if not influential) musician of the 20th Century whatever the genre. the only rock musician that deserves the epithet "genius".

Second , "one of the worst pop acts ever". As far as pop bands go they weren't too bad (imho) see Last Train to Clarkesville, I'm a Believer, Daydream Believer, Listen to the Band and You Just Maybe be the One. Also their tripped out movie "Head" (with jack nicholson) was pretty hip/out there (although it did border on the incomprehensible) for a manufactured pop group.

Following on I think Mike Nesmith with the First National Band had some excellent stuff. see Joanne and Different Drum.

There's a lot more pop groups worse than the Monkees even amongst the "manufactured" ones like The Archies (not even real people) and let's not forget The Partridge Family - although as a "manager" Rueben Kincaid was hilarious.

Hendrix was largely unknown in the U.S. until Monterrey Pop, so I guess it figures that he'd have to be an opener on his first tour of the States. It happened to the Who in the same year. They opened for Herman's Hermits!

I am drunk.

Therefore I say that the Monkees were awesome when they were good, tiresome when they bad and awful very few of the times. They were a marketed band: try to picture a marketed band as that, today; impossible. I love them Monkees.


C'mon. Not everybody in this life has to be like Hendrix.

On an early U.K. Package Tour, Hendrix shared the bill with Cat Stevens and Engelbert Humperdinck. The headliners were the, err, Walker Brothers.

On a latter U.K. Package Tour towards the end of 1967, he'd progressed to sharing the bill with The Move and Pink Floyd. Slightly more credible, I guess!

Yes, very cool indeed. This tour included a stop in my hometown, too. On December 1 1967, The Jimi Hendrix Experience performed at the Central Theatre in Chatham, Kent. Setlist :-

- Sgt.Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
- Hey Joe
- Purple haze
- Wild Thing

Being such a short set, one can tel he was part of a package!

Going a bit OT Honky Tonk Man.
You are from Chatham, Kent?
Tony Zemaitis, who built many guitars for Ronnie as well as for many other great Rockstars lived in Chatham, Kent.
His house, called "The Myrtles" was in Walderslade Road.
Don't know if his widow and son are still living there.
Did you know him?

I was born in Chatham, Kent, but raised in a neighbouring town called Gillingham. I think Stewed n Keefed - a friend and Gillingham neighbour - may have mentioned the Zemaitis connection with the area, actually. I didn't know the gentleman, but I certainly do know where Walderslade Road is!

I never cared about Hendrix. So he could play the guitar with his teeth. So what? Noise is most of what I hear. God bless him. I'd rather hear some boring fart like Mile Davis, and I'm no jazz aficionado. Cross that. I'd rather listen to a Brian Eno ambient album and at least not having to worry about anything at all. I admire Hendrix; but his music bores me for the most part.

I like "Angel," though.

47 YEARS AGO: JIMI HENDRIX EXPERIENCE MAKES THEIR LIVE DEBUT
by Dave Swanson October 15, 2013


...
Express Hulton Archive, Getty Images


The Jimi Hendrix Experience made their live debut 47 years ago this week with four dates in France.

Upon his arrival in England, the guitarist’s manager, former Animals bassist Chas Chandler, introduced Hendrix to drummer Mitch Mitchell and bassist Noel Redding, the duo who would become the Experience. After only a week of rehearsals, Chandler put the band on the road supporting French singer Johnny Hallyday.

The opening date was at the Novelty in Evreux, France on October 13, 1966 and the trek wound up on the 18th at the Olympia Theater in Paris. Also on the bill were Long Chris, The Blackbirds and for the final date, the Brian Auger Trinity. Less than a week later, the Experience would make their debut in the UK.

Their opening night set was short, but sweet, and included ‘In The Midnight Hour,’ ‘Have Mercy,’ ‘Land of a Thousand Dances,’ and ‘Hey Joe.’ In his autobiography, ‘Inside The Experience,’ Mitchell recalled the changes that took over Hendrix once he got onstage: “It was on this first gig that we saw the whole other person, completely different from anything I’d seen before” he said. “I knew he played really tasty guitar, but I didn’t know about the showmanship that went with it. It was like, Whoosh! This man is really out-front!”
