The Experience, Soft Machine, The Moving Sidewalks, and Neal Ford & the Fanatics perform at Will Rogers Auditorium in Fort Worth, Texas. The Experience play: “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” “Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window,” “The Wind Cries Mary,” “Fire,” “Catfish Blues,” “Foxey Lady,” “Hey Joe,” “Purple Haze,” and “Wild Thing.” Later, Hendrix jams backstage with Billy Gibbons, guitarist for The Moving Sidewalks, and trades guitars with him. Gibbons gives Hendrix a left-handed 1957 Stratocaster and Hendrix gives Gibbons a pink Strat. (Gibbons, who later joined ZZ Top, reportedly still owns the pink guitar.)
