New book JIMI is introduced as the ultimate tribute to the best known
and probably the most innovative guitar hero in rock history. It celebrates
what would have been Jimi Hendrix‘s 80th birthday on November 27, 2022.
This comprehensive visual celebration features extensive biographical texts,
and a trove of lesser known and never-before-published photographs, personal memorabilia, lyrics, and more. Additionally, JIMI includes quotations by legendary musicians, such as Paul McCartney, Ron Wood, Jeff Beck, Lenny Kravitz, Drake, Dave
Grohl, and others who have spoken about Hendrix‘s lasting influence.
In the four years before his untimely death at age 27, Jimi Hendrix created
a groundbreaking musical legacy, one that includes revered classics such as
Purple Haze and Voodoo Child. His signature guitar playing, provocative
songwriting and charismatic performances have continued to inspire legions
of musicians and fans alike.

and John McDermott of Experience Hendrix L.L.C.

Band: THE JIMI HENDRIX EXPERIENCE
Album: ELECTRIC LADYLAND – third and final (double) longplayer
Released: 16 October 1968 – 50 years ago
ALL MUSIC wrote: “Jimi Hendrix’s third and final album with the original Experience found
him taking his funk and psychedelic sounds to the absolute limit. The result was not only one
of the best rock albums of the era, but also Hendrix’s original musical vision at its absolute apex. When revisionist rock critics refer to him as the maker of a generation’s mightiest dope music, this is the album they’re referring to”
Full review here – Score: 5/5
