Hendrixis the definitive, illustrated biography of the man widely considered the greatest rock guitarist of all time.

Jimi Hendrix's music still lives on today. This (incredibly) is the first full-blown illustrated gift book exploring the life and career of one of the rock world's most celebrated musicians. Hendrix enjoyed the international limelight for less than four years, but hisinnovative and imaginative interpretations of blues and rockcontinue to inspire guitarists and music lovers across ages and genre.

Inside,Seattle-based music journalist Gillian Gaarexamines the guitarist's upbringing, his service as an Army paratrooper, his role as a sideman on the chitlin' circuit, his exile in the UK, and his eventual reemergence in the US and the fame that followed until his untimely death in 1970.

Featuringdesign as lavish as Hendrix's musicand carefully curated photography, posters, picture sleeves, and other assorted memorabilia, this is the ultimate Hendrix book experience.
