“When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace.” - Jimi Hendrix

“When Jimi first came to England no one knew who he was. I was asked to shoot him for his album. I had the idea to have a wall of flame behind him because he was like “hot”. We shot at The Roundhouse in Camden. I had one assistant on the left and one on the right.The assistant to the left lit the cans of petrol and boom! A wall of flame 20 foot high! I don’t know how we didn’t cook him! - David Montgomery


This image was used as the inside cover of Jimi’s last studio album and was his last album to be released before his untimely death in 1970.
