(FAQ). "Once you're dead, you're made for life," Jimi Hendrix said a few weeks before death, foretelling his posthumous fame. Upon the discovery of his wine-soaked body in an empty London flat, the press made an example of his excessive lifestyle and yet underestimated the other body of Jimi Hendrix: a body of work as vital to our understanding of the 20th century as that of Louis Armstrong, the Beatles, and Miles Davis. Hundreds of hours of unreleased studio sessions and concert performances would be his salvation. A modest man but highly competitive musician, Hendrix set the stage for many of the most significant musical movements to emerge between 1970 and 1999, including heavy metal, fusion, glam rock, and rap. Voodoo bluesman... sonic producer... the lyricist that out-Dylaned Dylan: these are what snatch our attention 40 years after his death, as does his "aw, shucks" smile in photos and the raw sexuality of concert performances. It's hard to find the man under all the falsehoods told by friends, family, business associates, and even Jimi himself. Jimi Hendrix FAQ attempts to present the facts in a fast-moving, fan-friendly read.
