Fusing blues, jazz and psychedelia with an outrageous personal style and image, Hendrix is still revered as the most important instrumentalist in the history of rock. He died aged 27 from drugs and alcohol. Capturing the essence of Hendrix's intense, apocalyptic and ultimately tragic life, the author covers Hendrix's boyhood in Seattle, his years in the US Air Force, his reputation as the best sideman around, his manic trip to London and superstardom, the songs, the concerts, the flaming guitars, the drugs, the booze, the women and most important, the incomparable legacy he left behind.
'The strongest and most ambitious biography yet written about any rock and roll performer.' ROLLING STONE 'never less than accomplished and, as an appreciation of Hendrix's cultural significance, it has dated reassuringly little.' MUSIC WEEK
