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.”

Jimi in our Brook Street apartment in 1969. Jimi isn’t holding a strange looking musical instrument, this was actually one of my crutches. I tripped on the stairs coming back from a gig one night and had to go to the hospital to have my ankle put in plaster. Jimi would draw on the plaster and it ended up covered in his doodles. ~ Kathy Etchingham
