Welcome to the first bloom of psychedelic flower power. The summer of '67 opens with the first massive rock festival - June's Monterrey Pop Festival, featuring artists from the Mamas and the Papas to Jimi Hendrix, the Who, the Jefferson Airplane, and Janis Joplin.

The Beatles keep chugging along with All You Need Is Love, Strawberry Fields Forever, Penny Lane, and the biggest album of the year (and probably the most important rock album of all time), Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.
