Summary
A portrait of rock legend Jimi Hendrix captures the full span of his life, from his troubled childhood and battles against racial prejudice to his rapid rise to the height of the music world and tragic death
Summary
The image and lifestyle of Jimi Hendrix was larger-than-life, but beyond this was a complex man who struggled to accept his role as an idol. This sensitive, meticulously-researched biography recounts the entire arc of Hendrix's life: from his troubled childhood in Seattle's projects and the early loss of his mother, to his struggles against racial prejudice as a young musician and his rapid ascent to the top of the swinging London scene, and finally to the apex of his career headlining Woodstock in 1969, with his death a year later
