A very useful well written book presenting an excellent overview of Hendrix's career. It is perhaps somewhat redundant for the serious afficionado with a large Hendrix bookshelf but as a primer it is first rate. The biographical section is accurate both on fact and opinion.
The section on the music is not quite as good, I strongly disagree with his assessment of Axis: Bold as Love as "the weakest of the Experience's studio albums" and he overlooks some of the best live concerts, particularly the Albert Hall 24/2/69 at which I was fortunate enough (and old enough!) to be present. However if you just need one or two low priced books on Hendrix this is the one to buy together with Peter Doggett's "Jimi Hendrix: the complete guide to his music". For those wanting more skip these and buy Keith Shadwick's "Jimi Hendrix Musician", which largely rendered all previous biographies redundant.
