This review is from: 'Scuse Me While I Kiss the Sky: Jimi Hendrix: Voodoo Child (Paperback)
I was disappointed in this book. Personally, I think it is boring and kept waiting for it to get better. It is all about his music, and there is much more to Jimi then that. Or, that I would like to read about. The part about his childhood was nice, I liked that. I think many people would find this book facinating, but not me. It is more a story about his music, and I would rather read about his life. I guess you could say his life was his music. And maybe there isn't much known about his personal life. His death was remnants of articles I had read, and already knew.

Funny thing I've noticed about the medieval army of Hendrix fan barbarians. Those authors who focus on Jimi's personal life get trashed by people who complain their books didn't mention his music. And those authors that focus on his music get trashed by reviewers that complain their books ignored his life. People with better Hendrix knowledge would see Henderson focuses on things he thinks will best fulfill his purposes. He does that out of respect and dedication and not out of lack of qualification or ability.
