But did the iconic martial arts movie star, Doors frontman and legendary rock guitarist ever pose for this photo?
As it turns out, all three have been photoshopped into one image. According to Snopes, the base photograph for the montage is an image of Morrison, taken by Gloria Stavers, then editor-in-chief of 16 magazine, in the late 1960s.
The image of Lee was snapped in 1972 as part of publicity shots at Ocean Terminal, Hong Kong’s first US-style mall. It was then photoshopped into the base image along with Hendrix.
We haven’t been able to trace the source of the photo of Hendrix, but it does appear to be a signed polaroid picture of the musician that was digitally scanned at a later stage.
While many fans would no doubt argue that a photo of these three icons of the sixties is the epitome of “cool”, it never happened.
