A place with some musical history. Yeah...,Jimi Hendrix played his first U.S performance from his return from the UK. He set his guitar on fire "literally" and set the music industry on fire as well. That very Monterey Pop Fest conceived The Grateful Dead. Monterey is a very mystical place (Especially when the fog rolls in) The history speaks for itself...,i.e. John Steinbeck. Vlay was formed by (Monterey homeboy) Gary Gabriel. Gary shows his musical genius in his flexibility to embrace multi-genre. This is well exemplified with the rather ambient intro of "Blurry" Which builds into an emotional bit of metallic groove.
