It Happened In Monterey: Blues Brothers
Bob Hite and Elvin Bishop backstage at the June 1967 Monterey Pop Festival. Monterey was the first big gig for lead singer Hite and his bandmates in Canned Heat, although they had performed their amplified country blues regularly at LA’s Ashgrove and Topanga Corral earlier in the year. Bishop had already tasted fame in the Paul Butterfield Blues band but at Monterey was without his guitar partner Mike Bloomfield who had formed The Electric Flag. Photograph by Pat Murphy
