Jimi Hendrix: Musician
Keith ShadwickISBN: 0879307641;
Book DescriptionJimi Hendrix: Musician presents a completely fresh look at Hendrix by tracing his musical history and examining him as a guitarist, composer, and singer. Hendrix was a larger-than-life figure, and previous accounts have tended to obscure the role of his musical genius. This book places the visionary musician within the historical context of the 1960s and the years before and after his rise to fame, and within the musical and cultural events during all stages of his career, providing fascinating new clues about how he created his musical masterpieces. Hendrix expert Douglas J. Noble contributes a special examination of the instruments and equipment Hendrix used in his quest for more expressive and exciting sounds. 300 color and black-and-white photographs make this a visual celebration of the genius who created modern rock guitar.
