Hendrix: An Illustrated Biography

£13.99

Product description

Twelve years after his death Jimi Hendrix remains the most important instrumentalist in the history of rock. His astonishing virtuosity on the electric guitar, his uniquely instinctive approach to the instrument and the manner in which he expended its sonic vocabulary are all accomplishments from which later generations of rock performers took and continue to take as both inspiration and influence.

Aside from his enormous musical contribution to the development of rock music, Hendrix was a flamboyant and controversial figure at the vanguard of his times: and exotic and care-free individual whose life-style and visual aura typified the era in which he worked. He was also the first black musician to operate exclusively within the white rock spectrum and emerge as a bona fide superstar.

In his all too brief career Hendrix left behind a legacy of music that continues to excite, intrigue, entertain and educate. This book concentrates on that legacy, explaining in some detail just how, why and what Jimi Hendrix achieved before his untimely death in 1970.

This is a used paperback book in good overall condition. Please refer to photographs for further details.
