Selling from my collection of books... JIMI HENDRIX : ELECTRIC GYPSY by Harry Shapiro & Caesar Glebbeek Description from Amazon.... Sympathetic and comprehensive, this biography of left-handed guitar wizard Jimi Hendrix (1942-1970) features an exhaustive Hendrix discography, a list of his equipment and a file of film and photo appearances. Shapiro ( Waiting for the Man: Drugs and Popular Music ) and Glebbeek, founder of the Hendrix Information Centre in Ireland, regale the reader with quotes, anecdotes, song analyses and mini-bios of Hendrix colleagues, including the Jimi Hendrix Experience's drummer Mitch Mitchell and bassist Noel Redding. The musician is portrayed as a perfectionist, brilliant composer whose imaginative sound effects were limited only by equipment; a black artist under pressure from radical black groups because his audience was predominantly white; a dedicated guitarist overwhelmed by his lifestyle. Hendrix's drug abuse and death from a probable barbiturate overdose are not sensationalized as the authors concentrate on his formidable music legacy, flamboyant individualism and sense of humor. Published in 1991 352 pages Paperback (Out of print) Condition is still very good...8/10 Willing to negotiate slightly if you're taking 3 or more books/graphic novels in my listings Do hit me up if you're keen Lowballers...you know the drill 🖕🏽😉 Cheers!
