Jim Morrison, The Doors, Mill Valley CA Fantasy Fair, 1967, by Elaine Mayes. “The Fantasy Fair was an amazing three days on Mount Tamalpias, the very first rock festival, several weeks before The Monterey Pop Festival. We all had access to musicians then, and I was able to get very close to Jim. After the Doors first show on the second mountain stage, he signed autographs, and I hovered.”

Pete Townshend, The Who, Monterey Pop 1967, by Elaine Mayes. “When the Who started smashing their instruments and releasing fog all over the stage the audience was incredulous. We had never seen smashing as aesthetics. It seemed wasteful and felt scary.”
