From The Internet Movie Database (IMDb):

"When included with Monterey Pop, the film was originally intended to be a television special to be shown on ABC. However, several ABC executives objected to much of the footage, especially the blatant sexuality of Jimi Hendrix's performance. In fact, Thomas W. Moore threw up his hands and said, "Not on my network" after viewing the footage.

"Pete Townshend of The Who and Jimi Hendrix got into a heated argument over who was going to follow each other on the bill. Townshend didn't want to follow Hendrix and vice-versa. John Phillips settled the manner by flipping a coin.

"Although they declined the invitation to perform because they had sworn off touring permanently, all four Beatles were on the festival's board of directors. George Harrison had helped recommend Ravi Shankar, and Paul McCartney had pushed for the organizers to sign Jimi Hendrix, who was unknown in the United States at the time."

Jimi Hendrix, American singer, songwriter, rock guitarist and record producer (November 27, 1942 - September 18, 1970) was born Johnny Allen Hendrix in Seattle, Washington. James Marshall "Jimi" Hendrix's mixed genealogy included African American, Irish, and Cherokee ancestors. Although his mainstream career spanned only four years, he is widely regarded as one of the most influential electric guitarists in the history of popular music, and one of the most celebrated musicians of the 20th century. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame describes him as "arguably the greatest instrumentalist in the history of rock music". Hendrix began playing guitar at the age of 15. In 1961, he enlisted in the U.S. Army and trained as a paratrooper in the 101st Airborne Division; he was granted an honorable discharge the following year. Soon afterward, he moved to Clarksville, Tennessee, and began playing gigs on the Chitlin' Circuit, earning a place in the Isley Brothers' backing band and later with Little Richard, with whom he continued to work through mid-1965. He then played with Curtis Knight and the Squires before moving to England in late 1966 after being discovered by Linda Keith, who in turn interested bassist Chas Chandler of the Animals in becoming his first manager. Within months, Hendrix had earned three UK top ten hits with the Jimi Hendrix Experience: "Hey Joe", "Purple Haze", and "The Wind Cries Mary". He achieved fame in the U.S. after his performance at the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967, and in 1968 his third and final studio album, Electric Ladyland, reached number one in the U.S.; it was Hendrix's most commercially successful release and his first and only number one album. The world's highest-paid performer, he headlined the Woodstock Festival in 1969 and the Isle of Wight Festival in 1970, before his accidental death from barbiturate-related asphyxia on September 18, 1970, at the age of 27. Hendrix was inspired musically by American rock and roll and electric blues. He favored overdriven amplifiers with high volume and gain, and was instrumental in popularizing the previously undesirable sounds caused by guitar amplifier feedback. He was also one of the first guitarists to make extensive use of tone altering effects units, such as fuzz tone, Octavia, wah-wah, and Uni-Vibe in mainstream rock. He was the first artist to use stereophonic phasing effects in music recordings. Holly George-Warren of Rolling Stone commented: "Hendrix pioneered the use of the instrument as an electronic sound source. Players before him had experimented with feedback and distortion, but Hendrix turned those effects and others into a controlled, fluid vocabulary every bit as personal as the blues with which he began." Hendrix was the recipient of several music awards during his lifetime and posthumously. In 1967, readers of Melody Maker voted him the Pop Musician of the Year, and in 1968, Rolling Stone declared him the Performer of the Year. Disc and Music Echo honored him with the World Top Musician of 1969 and in 1970, Guitar Player named him the Rock Guitarist of the Year. The Jimi Hendrix Experience was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1992 and the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2005. Rolling Stone ranked the band's three studio albums, Are You Experienced, Axis: Bold as Love, and Electric Ladyland, among the 100 greatest albums of all time, and they ranked Hendrix as the greatest guitarist and the sixth greatest artist of all time. Jimi Hendrix died on September 18, 1970 at the age of 27. Details are disputed concerning Hendrix's last day and death. Coroner Gavin Thurston concluded that Hendrix aspirated his own vomit and died of asphyxia while intoxicated with barbiturates.[298] Citing "insufficient evidence of the circumstances", he declared an open verdict.
