About this title


Assembles photographs, songs, interviews with lovers and fellow musicians, and memoirs by friends and family to give an exhaustive account of the rock guitarist's life and early death

From Library Journal:

Shapiro and Glebbeek, founders and curators of the Hendrix Information Center, have created a magnum opus that is at once both the definitive biography and reference work on guitar genius Hendrix and his band The Jimi Hendrix Experience. In addition to a 500-page biography, this Hendrix cornucopia offers all the bells and whistles of a 100-page discography, with over 200 photographs, mementos and pieces of correspondence, a detailed chronology, and a unique appendix delineating Hendrix's guitars, equipment, and playing techniques, all of which contain sumptuous notes. Of the Hendrix mystique and deification since his death at age 27 in 1970, the authors write, "it would be a fitting tribute to Jimi's memory if his substance could begin to predominate over his image." Shapiro and Glebbeek have made a contribution of inestimable value toward this goal. One of the year's best popular music biographies and a mandatory purchase for all libraries. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 3/1/91.
