After a day full of recording at DeLane Lea Studios, The Jimi Hendrix Experience performed two shows at the venerable Bag O’Nails. Hendrix continued to make waves in the local music scene, and whenever possible a large group of fellow musicians would attend The Experience’s shows.

On this date it has been reported that The Beatles’ Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr were in attendance, as was The Who’s Pete Townshend and John Entwistle, The Rolling Stones’ Bill Wayman, The Cream’s Eric Clapton, Lulu, The Animal’s Eric Burdon, Georgie Fame, Geno Washington, Denny Lane, and Donovan. This evening also marks the first time that Jimi Hendrix meets guitar effects wizard Roger Mayer, who would later create several effects pedals for the guitarist.
