Product description


Gaar's cover art is simply unmatched; it immediately outshines any other book cover in its vicinity...Gaar is able to paint a more complete picture of Hendrix's youth in Seattle, as well as book-ending his story...Hendrix: The Illustrated Story, is a delightful experience.
(Pop Matters 2017-12-06)

a true gift book on a subject too many have tackled, but none quite like this.
(Short and Sweek LA 2017-11-09)

Gaar has gone deeper than the average writer...written with love and care and it’s not uncritical. Not all of Hendrix’s output was stellar and Gaar tells it like it is...even a die-hard “read everything, seen everything, heard everything” Hendrix mega-buff will get something from this book
(Rockerzine 2017-10-26)

...concert dates, album releases, and significant life events are well researched and certainly a boon to any Hendrixphile.
(Library Journal 2018-02-15)
