It’s been over forty years since the tragic death of Jimi Hendrix, yet his popularity is undiminished and his place as the preeminent electric guitarist of the ages is still unrivaled. In The Jimi Hendrix Experience, bestselling author and rock aficionado Jerry Hopkins delves into the legendary life and career of the greatest man to ever pick up a guitar.

With incredible photographs depicting Hendrix’s rise to the top, The Jimi Hendrix Experience is the ultimate biography of the “Voodoo Chile.” Hendrix’s legacy and music will live on for generations to be enjoyed by and to live on with fans of all ages.

Hendrix On Hendrix by Steven Roby


Original Title: Hendrix On Hendrix

Though many books have chronicled Jimi Hendrix’s brilliant but tragically brief musical career, this is the first to use his own words to paint a detailed portrait of the man behind the guitar. With selections carefully chosen by one of the world’s leading Jimi Hendrix historians, this work includes the most important interviews from the peak of his career, 1966 to 1970. In this authoritative volume, Hendrix recalls for reporters his heartbreaking childhood, his concept of "Electric Church Music" (intended to wash people’s souls and give them a new direction), and his wish to be remembered as not just another guitar player. While Hendrix never wrote a memoir, with new transcriptions from European papers, the African American press, counterculture newspapers, radio and TV interviews, and previously unpublished court transcripts, this book gives music fans the next best thing to a Hendrix autobiography.

Jimi Hendrix by Leon Hendrix


Original Title: Jimi Hendrix

More than forty years after his death, Jimi Hendrix-recently named the greatest guitarist of all time by Rolling Stone magazine-continues to inspire fans of rock music. Many have written about Hendrix's life and music, but Jimi Hendrix: A Brother's Story provides a revealing and unprecedented look at this visionary icon: an intimate biography written by Jimi's younger brother, Leon. Leon Hendrix takes us back to the days before Jimi's amazing rise to fame in the 1960s, beginning with their tough childhood in Seattle, when their fascination with science fiction and UFOs helped them escape a difficult family life. (Jimi insisted his family call him "Buster," after Flash Gordon actor Buster Crabbe.) The author reveals Jimi's early fascination with sound, from his experiments with plucking wires attached to bedposts to the time when he got in trouble for taking apart the family radio ("I was looking for the music," he explained) to Jimi's purchasing his first guitar-a Sears, Roebuck and Co. acoustic, from a neighbor. Leon recounts Jimi's early days performing on the "Chitlin' Circuit," when Jimi would call from the road to play early versions of tracks for the classic album Are You Experienced, and illuminates the biographical roots of Jimi's most well-known rock & roll songs. Readers learn about the heady days of sex and drugs that came with Jimi's skyrocketing fame in the sixties and how Leon felt Jimi's management isolated him from the rest of the family. The author speaks of his own heartbreak, learning of his brother's sudden death while incarcerated in Washington State's Monroe Reformatory. Commemorating what would have been Jimi's seventieth birthday, Leon Hendrix's poignant and captivating account sheds new light on a music legend.

The Jimi Hendrix Story by John Faralaco


Original Title: The Jimi Hendrix Story

The Jimi Hendrix Story New Edition Including the Updated Discography By John Faralaco Jimi Hendrix was probably the greatest rock guitarist of his era, and perhaps of all time. He was endowed with an awesome splendor, burning with wild radiance, the enlightener of daily life in the Sixties. He was unique. When Jimi struck the first crisp notes of “Purple Haze” and the audience shrieked, they became one with the spirit of the moment, at one with Jimi Hendrix. With bursting earnestness, with a fierce, savage sincerity, articulating that heaven and that hell, he was the natural voice of humanity and the heart of a wild son of nature. Jimi's paradise was sensual, his hell sensual. In the one and the other there was that which shocks all the spiritual feeling in us. Jimi Hendrix was one of the signature rockers of the Sixties, electrifying audiences from San Francisco’s Fillmore Auditorium to Woodstock. His life, often triumphant and often tragic, is chronicled in a detailed, passionate way by author John Faralaco. He not only tells of Hendrix’s life, but places that life solidly in the context of the Sixties music scene. In The Jimi Hendrix Story, Faralaco builds upon his earlier Hendrix biography, expanding it to include an overview of the performer’s legacy and of the final days of the other members of his band. He has updated the Hendrix discography to the present day, providing a valuable resource for fans and rock historians alike.
