Jimi Hendrix (Paperback)

Leon Hendrix

-  

In this intimate depiction, Leon vividly recounts Jimi's tough childhood in Seattle, and his amazing rise to fame. From Jimi's experimentation with the sound and vibration of plucking wires attached to the posts of their brass bed to the moment he picked up his first stringed instrument, this is a fresh and personal look at an enduring icon from the brother who was there from the beginning. Leon illuminates the origin and meaning of classic Hendrix tunes, which Jimi would play for his brother over the phone as he wrote them on the road. He also chronicles the complicated Hendrix family dynamic, the culture of sex and drugs that came with Jimi's stardom, and his tragic death. This captivating account sheds new light on rock and roll's genuine legend.
