'The burning guitar shot is on the book cover. In it, Hendrix straddles his guitar. His hands are raised, as if he is willing the flames higher. Or maybe he is just worshiping at the altar of his own greatness. Whatever it was, it became a classic image of a pop star, used twice on the cover of Rolling Stone.' --Lens Blogs- The New York TimesOne of the thousands of people present that day was photographer Ed Caraeff, whose photograph of that moment has been called one of the most famous rock photos in music history. It's one of the dozens of images of Hendrix featured in the new book Burning Desire: The Jimi Hendrix Experience Through the Lens of Ed Caraeff.As Caraeff notes in the introduction, he might not have taken the picture at all had it not been for a lucky bit of advice from a stranger. --TimeBorn and raised a 12-minute drive from the Sunset Strip, Caraeff grew up on the streets of Hollywood. But the Monterey International Pop Festival, 400 miles from his Hollywood home, was the furthest he had ever traveled without his parents. --CNN Style
