A comprehensive visual celebration and ultimate tribute to the greatest guitar player in rock and roll history.

In the four years before his untimely death at age 27, Jimi Hendrix created a groundbreaking musical legacy 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.
In collaboration with Jimi’s sister, Janie Hendrix, and John McDermott of Experience Hendrix L.L.C., JIMI is an official tribute to his musical legacy. This book significantly expands on the authors' previously published titles, including An Illustrated Experience, and features:
  • A new introduction by Janie Hendrix
  • Extensive biographical texts
  • A trove of lesser-known and never-before-published photographs, personal memorabilia, and lyrics
  • Quotes 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
  • And more

JIMI is a must-have compendium for fans of Jimi Hendrix and a perfect gift for guitar, rock and roll, and pop culture enthusiasts.

Janie ushered the companies into the 21st century with the dream of her father and brother in mind.
