First Speakers Confirmed for Monterey 50 Event
We are now ready to announce who our first speaker will be for Monterey 50, our day of Hendrix talks on the same date Hendrix performed at the legendary festival.
Leading our speakers for the day will be legendary journalist and press agent Keith Altham. Not only has Keith interviewed pretty much every iconic 60s & 70s artist, from The Beatles and The Stones to Frank Zappa and Led Zeppelin, he is probably most famous for the time he spent with Hendrix.
Keith will be recounting some of the amazing experiences he shared with Hendrix, including coming up with the idea for Jimi to light his guitar on fire, being at Monterey, and interviewing Hendrix only 5 days before his death in 1970.
Alongside Keith we will also have a talk by Dr Christian Lloyd, the author of our Hendrix Flat companion guide Hendrix at Home: A Bluesman in Mayfair.
Spaces are very limited.
