Discusses the childhood, young adulthood, musical career, and death of Jimi Hendrix, considered by many to be the world's greatest rock-and-roll guitarist. This description may be from another edition of this product.
I am a great Hendrix fan and have read many books about him. But I like this book because it is easy for kids to read (I have it on the free-read bookshelf in my classroom) and it does not pass judgment on Jimi's lifestyle. It reveals his drug use and other destrcutive tendencies but doesn't judge him. The author relates the story of his life with honesty and compassion. There is a new edition by Rebecca Poole that uses a lot of the material from this original edition, but isn't as accurate.

I thought this book was very helpful in my everyday life. This book will enforce your mind to think of the capabilities of the guitar. Jimi Hendrix is great and deserves this book about him, that depicts his life story.

From a poor background in a home marked by an alcoholic mother, Hendrix rose to become a star. Jimi Hendrix details his remarkable story and profound influences on American popular music.
