This definitive, illustrated biography explores the life and career of the rock music legend with photographs, posters, and other ephemera.
Every music critic to rank the Greatest Rock Guitarists of All Time agrees on one thing: Jimi Hendrix is number one. Hendrix enjoyed the international limelight for less than four years, but his innovative guitar playing and imaginative interpretations of blues and rock continue to inspire generations of musicians and music lovers.
In Hendrix, music journalist Gillian Gaar explores the guitarist's life from his childhood in Seattle to his service as an Army paratrooper, his role as a sideman on the chitlin' circuit, his exile in the United Kingdom, his rise to superstardom, and his untimely death in 1970. The volume is enhanced throughout with rare archival photographs as well as posters, picture sleeves, and other assorted memorabilia.
