When Jimi Hendrix took the stage at the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967, it was the first time he had ever headlined in front of an American audience.
After watching The Who end their set by smashing their instruments on stage, he knew there was only one thing left to do:
He doused his guitar with lighter fluid, kissed it, lit on fire, and smashed it to pieces before throwing the remains into the audience. The rest is history.
Think about this moment often, then take this blanket along for the adventure.
