Description

Series: Stories Behind Every Song. Paperback: 144 pages. It really fills in the gaps on some of Jimi's songs, such as on Castles Made of Sand.

Series: Stories Behind Every Song. I didn't know that the first verse was about Jimi's mom and dad fighting and eventually splitting up. Or the second verse was about his troubled brother Leon.

Adding to the tedium is Stubbs's overweening adoration of Jimi Hendrix. Any negative assessment of a song is immediately, breathlessly corrected by something like "of course Hendrix's genius shines through on," ultimately making it clear that Stubbs is utterly unable to criticize any of Hendrix's work because he is just too infatuated with him. He makes it clear that he considers Hendrix "rock's only genius" and I rolled my eyes so hard at that line that my glasses broke.

Part of the successful series that includes Rolling Stones, U2, The Doors, and others in the strong-selling and well-established Stories Behind the Songs series, Voodoo Child includes a complete discography, 90 photographs, as well as a discussion of all of Hendrix's live albums. Jimi Hendrix is very probably the greatest solo rock artist of all time and thirty-seven years after his death, he remains a best-seller.

Jimi Hendrix: The Story Behind Every Song (Stories Behind the Songs). He has since diversified into writing on film, TV and sport, contributing to The Guardian and When Saturday Comes. In recent years he has written for Uncut, The Times, The Guardian, NME, GQ, Spin and Arena. His first and last musical love, however, remains Jimi Hendrix - a left-hander like himself and, unlike himself, a musical genius. David currently lives in Blackheath, London.

Jimi Hendrix began musical life on the "chitlin' circuit" in the mid-1960s, where he developed a fluid, funky guitar style, backing the likes of the Isley Brothers on the road. In 1966 Chas Chandler, formerly of The Animals, discovered him playing in Greenwich Village and shrewdly persuaded him to relaunch his career in London, from whence he could be manufactured as a pop-rock sensation and then sold back to America. The plan worked. He enjoyed instant success with hits like "Hey, Joe" and "Purple Haze." His band, which included British rhythm section Noel Redding and Mitch Mitchell, was promoted as the Jimi Hendrix Experience, cutting three albums in quick succession in 1967 and 1968. Part of the successful series that includes Rolling Stones, U2, The Doors, and others in the strong-selling and well-established Stories Behind the Songs series, Voodoo Child includes a complete discography, 90 photographs, as well as a discussion of all of Hendrix's live albums. Jimi Hendrix is very probably the greatest solo rock artist of all time and thirty-seven years after his death, he remains a best-seller. Certainly, if anyone personified the genre in its purest, most potent and inflammatory form, it was Hendrix.

This book came quickly. Quality is wonderful. The book is unique and the stories behind the songs are artfully crafted by a gifted writer. Excellent and a surprise, especially for $0.1 !

My 3 star rating isn't really a put-down. 3.5 is probably more accurate. The overall content and presentation are fine and there's alot of useful information in here. My problem with it is that I'd hoped to read a bunch of stuff I'd never seen elsewhere. But in fact, I didn't find much of anything that I hadn't already read elsewhere. Of the stuff that is here, some isn't even as detailed as you'll find in other books like Setting The Record Straight or Shadwick's Musician.

I am a huge fan of Jimi Hendrix. I listen to his music every day, and it never gets old. I've listened to all of the essential albums (and many more) but have never actually read any book on him and his music. I saw this book in the music part of the book store. I quickly looked through the pages, and was very intrigued, since I'd never heard where he got his inspiration from. And I must say this book will intrigue you as well. It really fills in the gaps on some of Jimi's songs, such as on Castles Made of Sand. I didn't know that the first verse was about Jimi's mom and dad fighting and eventually splitting up. Or the second verse was about his troubled brother Leon. And the third verse was about Jimi's mom dying. These interesting facts and more are in this book. If you own a lot of Jimi Hendrix CDs out there, and you're asking yourself: How did he do that? Where did he get that idea for a song? or Who is that song about? Then buy this book. It's a very informative and an interesting read.

Interesting because the subject is interesting. If you're looking just for an introduction to Jimi Hendrix and a cursory look at each of his songs - the book is fine. I was looking for a more serious book, one with less fanboy gushing praise and opinion.
