3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best book on Jimi Hendrix by a long way., 31 Dec 2013
This review is from: The Hendrix Experience (Paperback)
I enjoyed this book when originally released in 1990, but then I was only 18 years old back then! I have just re-read it and it has left me very disappointed. The biggest plus with this book are the photographs. There are lots of beautiful pictures which I've not seen in any other books. The pictures are often given the wrong place or year, but a good picture is a good picture I suppose.

Mitch Mitchell comes across well in his book, but he doesn't seem to be able to recall many details of his time with Jimi at all. He often says, 'I can't remember' or 'I'm not sure', which is annoying to the reader. Each year is only given a few pages and I felt thoroughly short changed by the end, and was left thinking, 'is that it?' There are a few nice anecdotes, but nowhere near enough. His memories of the night before Jimi died are quite interesting, but again breezed over far too quickly.

The book will be of interest to the serious Jimi Hendrix fan, if only to read the once, but I would certainly look elsewhere for a more comprehensive read on Jimi, although I am not sure where, as a definitive book on Jimi Hendrix has yet to be written in my opinion.
