Hendrix Plays "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" for The Beatles 1967

Jimi Hendrix was so excited after the UK release of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band in 1967 that he opened a set at London’s Saville Theater with his own, Hendrix-ified rendition of the song just three days after the album's release. In the audience: McCartney and George Harrison.

McCartney considered it to be a compliment and one of the great honours of his career.
