We're running a special event with prizes including four Kansas City - London Purple Haze Chiefs and a couple of custom brushes (Manic Depression El Dorado and Voodoo Child El Dorado). Here's a link to the page on our site

It would be really great if we could get some fun discussion going in this thread related not only to the brushes, but also the 1967 Summer of Love, Jimi Hendrix, the trivia questions, other trivia questions, etc. We might even be moved to drop in a prize or two here.

So we're supposed to post memories from those years? I can certainly remember not being born yet.

I was at Monterey Pops on the second day, 50 years ago yesterday, and saw Janis Joplin, Country Joe, Paul Butterfield, Steve Miller, the Byrds, and Jefferson Airplane, after hitchhiking there and sleeping the night before in a sleeping bag under a city park bush that kept most of the coastal damp off.

Just WOW! That was between my freshman and sophomore years of high school. If I'd been two years older, I probably would have run off to SF and not be here today.

As a Sophomore in College I was aware of Woodstock, the event. I remember reading about it and thinking wow, that's a lot of great musicians, where the heck is Woodstock, NY? The TV coverage was crazy, wet and muddy hippies everywhere. It was a fun summer, that I do remember very vividly. In retrospect I wish I had at least tried to hitchhike to upstate New York, but instead chose summer school where I met my first wife. The music from that era is the music of my life and I enjoy it to this day. Yes, I had long hair, no shoes, only sandals and jeans with lots of holes.

I had a chance to see Hendrix in Denver in '69. Some friends of mine road-tripped there from my hometown (Belleville, KS). I was running an old Skelly gas station (looked like one out of the 20s or 30s). I asked if I could take off. Answer was no. I decided to keep the job. Bad decision. Turned out to be the last gig Hendrix did with The Experience. In fact he made that announcement during the show. Still kicking myself.

I was finance and technology at work.  I learned servers and network printers could be named something special.  Thus, our servers were named Jimi, Janis, Mick, Keith, and Floyd. People that knew me had no trouble spelling Jimi.  Picture of Jimi and Janis in our server room.
