This Day In Rock History: June 18th


1967 The Jimi Hendrix Experience made its famous debut at the Monterey Pop Festival in California. A dispute with the Who as to which act would close the Festival was settled by a coin flip. Hendrix played an incredible set in which he lit his guitar on fire.

1965 The Four Tops had their first US number one record with "I Can't Help Myself". Lead singer Levi Stubbs had not been satisfied with the recording session and was promised that he could do it again the following day, but no other session ever took place. The track that became a hit was just the second take of the song.
