Jimi Hendrix - The Man, The Magic, The Truth
Sharon Lawrence is a journalist who knew Hendrix well, became his confidante and saw him a number of times in the weeks before his death. The book contains new and rare material including many unpublished conversations with Hendrix and major insights from more than fifty fresh sources who have previously kept their silence. Fellow rock stars and musicians, childhood neighbours, lawyers and newspaper editors are among those who knew Jimi well and are now willing to speak about who he really was and what events marked his lightning-fast ride to the top, and the extraordinary highs and lows which ultimately led to his death. Insightful and revelatory, this is also an affectionate portrayal of the real Jimi by a friend who feels the time is finally right to tell the true story.
