Likewise, rock ‘roll photographer Jim Marshall has a backstage pass and a bird’s eye view to everything! Such as capturing Hendrix doing what he does best, shredding the hell out of his guitar!

Besides becoming an iconic event that symbolizes the height of the “Hippie Culture” While also drawing a crowd of 100,000 people from all over the world. Who else but Jim Marshall is able to capture this classic photo of Jimi Hendrix?
