    One thought on “Hendrix on Hendrix: Interviews and Encounters with Jimi Hendrix”

    1. Just getting around to writing about this now the saddest book in the world about an innocent genius transformed into a superstar, misunderstood as a sexualized gimmick master, contractually naive, not in it for anything other than his love of music, everyone pulling at him fans, Black Panthers, music mogels, musicians, hanger ons Only three years between Monterey Pop Festival and Isle of Wight Festival before his death suspicious than I thought Looking forward to a novel like DeLillo s Libra a [...]

    2. This is an amazing book Presenting Jimi Hendrix through a single lens, that of his interviews with various rock magazines and radio and TV programs, has the feel of art The interviews mirror his career chronologically They can get repetitive, as Jimi discusses again and again where he is creatively and the various obstacles involved in trying to be understood as a musician and artist As an observer, though, you start to see what it must have been like to be constantly hounded and sought after, a [...]

    3. Jimi Hendrix s music is not new, not having been born in the last bit of the 1970s with a huge penchant for classic rock But I had always assumed, based on his onstage flamboyance, that he was the same way off stage And that is not the case in any way This biography is fascinating, having been taken from interviews done with Hendrix throughout his career, and it is pretty literally Hendrix in his own words The journalists that open the pieces give their impressions of him at the time, which just [...]

    4. there s quite a bit of useful info in here on hendrix s guitar and arranging techniques and it was great to read so many interviews with hendrix the bob garcia interview has some great stuff in it about the cool unexpected things that can happen when using his preferred technique of improvising his songs out and, in the experience s case, when each member in fact likes a different kind of music inside this book it took hendrix seven years to develop his style the latter part during which he had [...]

    5. This is a great book for any Hendrix fan or anyone interested or curious about James Marshall Hendrix, the legendary guitar god of the 1960s This collection of interviews, magazine articles and other brief testimonies gives the reader a look behind the machinery of the Hendrix legend Unfortunately, some of the interviews seem to repeat and overlap, but by and large, this is a great book worthy of reading by anyone and a definite MUST HAVE for the Hendrix fan, disciple or acolyte.

    6. These interviews are carefully compiled and date from the time of his ascendancy up till the time of his death Hendrix comes across as likeable, somewhat na ve and than a bit muddled surprisingly unarticulate, probably because of drugs I don t think this does much for his legacy, but since it s Hendrix in his own words it s clearly accurate, and an enjoyable if minor romp through the late 60s.

    7. This book is based on interviews with Jimi Hendrix himself He had a poor start money wise and he took years perfecting his guitar style He was not in the music business to make money, he was in it to make music I saw in the late 1960 s, the best concert I ever went to.
