Book: Starting at Zero - Jimi Hendrix
Despite spending just four years in the spotlight, the sheer impact and originality of Jim Hendrix's music placed him for ever among the musical giants.
Modest and intensely private, Jimi was shrouded in intrigue from the moment he came into the public eye, and the mystery has only grown with time. Much has been written about him by fans and critics. He did, however, leave his own account of himself in his many interviews, lyrics, writings, poems, diaries and even stage raps. Starting At Zero brings all these elements together. The result is an intimate, funny and poetic memoir - one that tells, for the first time, Jimi's own story as only he could tell it.
