THE MONKEES REMEMBER JIMI HENDRIX AS OPENING ACT

posted by Fast Freddie - 

On July 8, 1967, The Monkees began a 29-date tour with The Jimi Hendrix Experience opening. Jimi was dropped after six shows because his act wasn’t suitable for The Monkees’ teen audience.  Mike and Peter of The Monkees share their memories of the short lived pairing.  Some other interesting miss matches include The Doors opening for Simon and Garfunkle, Alice Cooper opening for Chad and Jeremy, Bruce Springsteen opening for Anne Murray, The Ramones opening for Toto, Ted Nugent opened for America and Radiohead opened for Alanis Morrisette.
