I have quite a lot of material about the life and work of Jimi Hendrix – most of the albums, one single, some memorabilia and quite a lot of written material. This is one of my favourites.
Published by Atria Books in 2007 “Jimi Hendrix: An illustrated experience” is a truly interactive experience, featuring reproductions of drawings from Jimi’s childhood, his rare handwritten song lyrics and never-before-seen archival photographs. The book also includes a 70-minute audio CD with interviews and commercially unreleased recordings of some live performances in 1968 and 1969. Co-written by Janie Hendrix (Jimi’s sister) and John McDermott, the book benefits from exclusive access to private family archives, combining to reveal a rare insight into the life of such an influential rock icon.
