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.

Booklist Review: "It says something significant and not necessarily morbid when a pop-music fandom remains enraptured with the career and artistic prowess of a long-dead rock star who continues to be the subject of multiple books and other media 42 years after his tabloid-friendly drug-overdose-related death. Jimi Hendrix, the epitome of the dead rock star, is as hot, sexy, and dead as Jim Morrison, but unlike the Lizard King, Hendrix's commercially available recorded output has more than doubled since his death, no doubt attracting new fans to the legend of the flashy, left-handed guitar player who practically defined psychedelic music in the late 1960s. Roby presents a wide-ranging collection of interviews with Hendrix originally undertaken by diverse sources ranging from Swedish radio show Pop '67 Special to pop-music journals like Britain's Melody Maker from November 1966 through September 1970. Also included are transcripts of Hendrix's pretrial examination in a 1968 lawsuit involving management contracts and his July 7, 1969, guest appearance on The Dick Cavett Show. Unlike more recent coverage of Hendrix, these short pieces deal with the star at the height of his fame, with no limiting factors on his career evident. It's a refreshing addition to the Hendrix library, and lends context to serious discussions of the man as an artist.--Tribby, Mike Copyright 2010 Booklist"
