For many, the name Jimi Hendrix conjures up a larger-than-life image of the man who set fire to guitars, women's hearts, and the status quo. In this groundbreaking account, music journalist Charles R. Cross takes a far deeper look. Beyond Hendrix's legendary onstage and offstage magnetism and his excessive lifestyle was a man who struggled to accept his role as an idol and privately craved the kind of normal family life he never had. Based on more than three hundred interviews and never-before-seen private documents, this book recounts the entire arc of Hendrix's life, from his troubled childhood and struggle with racial prejudice to his rapid ascent in swinging London to headlining Woodstock in 1969, with his death a year later. As colorful and large as the decade of the sixties, this biography gives the real Hendrix the immortality he deserves.

About the Author:

Charles R. Cross, author of the bestseller Heavier Than Heaven: A Biography of Kurt Cobain and three previous books, was editor of The Rocket, a Northwest music and entertainment magazine, from 1986-2000. He lives near Seattle, where he writes for numerous newspapers and magazines.

From AudioFile:

Seattle rock historian Charles Cross takes a deep and sensitive look at the complex life of the short-lived father of acid rock. Beginning with HendrixÕs family roots in Arkansas, Virginia, and British Columbia, actor Lloyd James narrates this chronicle of the guitaristÕs troubled childhood in Seattle, his apprenticeship along the ÒChitlinÕ circuitÓ and in the coffeehouses of Greenwich Village, his stellar rise as a phenomenon in England, and his drug-and-alcohol-fueled descent to death. JamesÕs intensity and emotion make his reading compelling despite his overtly Òwhite breadÓ voice. Surprisingly absent from this recording are musical sound bites to illustrate HendrixÕs musical style. Nevertheless, ROOM FULL OF MIRRORS is a beautiful and unforgettable audio biography.
