"I first made this image in 1967, and then the poster came out in 1968. One day I sat down and started this drawing out of my style. I had been an art director at Capitol Records, and I hadn't been drawing very much. It was a whole new state I was in. But it was an opportunity to test my drawing and put it into a poster and have it published. It all came out great. It was a fantastic show. There were ads everywhere and people loved the poster. It just started to become a piece of history right away, much like The Endless Summer poster." - John Van Hamersveld

"I became a fan of Hendrix after I exited my punk rock orthodoxy phase. I ended up gravitating towards John's image because it had that nod to psychedelia, without going so overboard in the baroque detail, that it remained iconic. This Hendrix image itself — along with a few other influences, like Barbara Kruger and Russian Constructivism — was a huge influence in how I was going to make work that had the ability to cut through the clutter of what's on the street and still have a recognizable style. When I was just making variations of the Andre on the different backgrounds, I was looking at a lot of psychedelic work, but John's piece really inspired me to make something that was a deviation from just playing it safe with the original Andre image. So John's Pinnacle Hendrix was sort of a gateway to the evolution of my entire Andre The Giant project. I can't really understate the importance of this image for me." - Shepard Fairey
