To give something back to the fans. To sacrifice something thats very important to him. Dont think he was crazy, he didnt believe he was losing his mind.

He actually did it to upstage Pete Townsend, because the Who went on right before Hendrix.

This.

He didnt want to be less than them i guess. There was a little tension deciding who was going to last. (i read it somewhere in Guitar World Magazine November 07 i think)

because he was on two hits of monterey purple acid and it probably looked really cool to him.

I prefer to think it was because he had LSD tabs in his headband.

lol slipknot.

In all seriousness, he probably was high..
#36
because the who and him had an arguement about who should go on first. niether wanted to follow the other. so jimi said "if i follow you, im pulling out all the stops". and he did. he also said in an interview it was just a kind of release for him at the time. i believe he did it more than once actually. but im assuming you mean the well known time.
#37
He wanted to outdo The Who so he lit his guitar on fire, that is the actual reason it's on the DVD I have, The Jimi Hendrix Experience Live At Monterey.
#39
Part of it was coz he was trying to out-do The Who.
Not saying he wasn't tripping off his tits completely too but that's part of it.
