Here's a quote from our book of the month to give you sustenance:

"In 2002 the Queen celebrated her 50th Jubilee. A pop concert at Buckingham Palace featured a variety of artists which included 'wild man of rock' Ozzy Osbourne. The concert was preceded by a 'special tribute' to the Monarch when guitarist Brain May appeared on the roof of Buckingham Palace playing 'God Save The Queen'. In 1969 Jimi Hendrix played his extraordinary version of the American national anthem at the Woodstock festival. Hendix annihilated 'The Stars and Stripes' in this legendary performance, indisputably one of the greatest moments in the history of rock. 'This' said Hendix at Woodstock 'is just the beginning' and millions believed that music was going to change the world. What Hendix achieved at Woodstock was genuinely ground-breaking. 'The Stars and Stripes' (either as a flag or an anthem) is sacred for most Americans. Jimi Hendrix frightened the establishment - not only because of what he represented (a key figure in the 'turn on, tune in, drop out' generation) but because of the clear and direct effect he had on the audience. Before Woodstock many American teenagers were already refusing to go to Vietnam and burning their draft cards, but in the wake of the festival this dissent was significantly accelerated. Unsurprisingly, Jimi Hendrix was never invited to perform anything at the White House. By the time of the Queen's 50th Jubilee in 2002, a pathetic bunch of so-called rock musicians played tributes to the head of the British establishment. They bowed and curtseyed with all the obsequiousness demanded by Royal protocol. Brian May's risible rendition of the national anthem was beyond ridicule."
