Jimi Hendrix, according to The Penguin Encyclopedia of Popular Music, was "without a doubt the most prodigiously original, inventive and influential guitarist of the rock era". He died on 18 September 1970. Monika Dannemann had been his fiancee for nearly two years; she was with him when he died.
The Inner World of Jimi Hendrix is Monika's tribute to her lost love: a beautifully designed, exquisitely executed gallery of her original oil paintings, inspired by Jimi's songs, and reflecting his spirit. All are reproduced in full colour, and each is accompanied by an explanatory commentary expressing some of Jimi's innermost thoughts about his music, life, death, love and spirituality as revealed by him to Monika.
In separate sections the author writes candidly, and very movingly, about her time with Jimi, their relationship, his last days, and his tragically premature death at the age of only twenty-seven. For the first time ever she discloses the full truth about the circumstances surrounding his death, and recounts in detail the distressing months that followed as the facts were continually manipulated and distorted, especially by the media.
Published to coincide with the twenty-fifth anniversary of his death, The Inner World of Jimi Hendrix also includes a sequence of previously unpublished colour photographs of Jimi, taken by Monika the day before he died.
