Jimi Hendrix by Dale Evva Gelfand


Jimi Hendrix by Dale Evva Gelfand

Jimi Hendrix once said, I'm the one that has to die when it's time for me to die, so let me live my life the way I want to. And so he did. A poor black kid from Seattle, Washington, Jimi Hendrix became a rock legend who left an indelible mark on American culture. This updated biography illuminates the guitarist's life for students with updated information and compelling photographs. Named number one on the Rolling Stone magazine, List of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time, the left-handed Hendrix wowed fans, fellow performers, and critics alike with his musical wizardry, outrageous theatrics, and flamboyant costumes. Like other rock legends who lived fast and died young, Hendrix seemed to have crammed several lives' worth of experience into 27 short years, but his legacy endures, influencing successive generations of musicians and winning new fans born long after his death.


The updated format is brightened by added color illustrations... The text is very readable... library media centers...will want to order them... Recommended.
