Contents: Although Hendrix died at 27 in 1970 following a drugs overdose, he was not a desperate figure in irreversible decline, like his contemporary Jim Morrison. He was at the height of his powers, untouchable and liable to have reached further plateaux, which will have to remain unexplored, as hinted at in a slew of posthumous releases. In dying young, however, he's at least frozen forever as a supreme icon figure who has inspired subsequent generations in different ways. Heavy metal guitarists may have caricatured his fretboard virtuosity but among the post-punk and post-rave generations, he has proven an enormously potent touchstone on which they can spark off new modes of self-expression. In today's world of decidedly mortal rock creatures, his status as an immortal is more assured than ever and this book looks at all the music he recorded, from Are You Experienced? to posthumous releases and even studio out-takes.
Series Title: Stories behind the songs.
Responsibility: David Stubbs.
