Summary "Hendrix on Hendrix" includes the most important interviews from the peak of Jimi Hendrix’s career, carefully selected by one of the world’s leading Hendrix historians, Steven Roby.
Full Description In Roby’s book, Hendrix recalls for reporters his heartbreaking childhood. He explains that his concept of "Electric Church Music" is intended to wash their souls and give them a new direction. And in his final interview, just days before his death, he discloses that he wants to be remembered as not just another guitar player. 

"Hendrix on Hendrix" (released near what would have been Hendrix's 70th birthday) includes new transcriptions from European papers, the African-American press, and counterculture newspapers; radio and television interviews; and previously unpublished court transcripts.

Steven Roby is a respected Hendrix historian, archivist and author. His previous books include "Becoming Jimi Hendrix" and "Black Gold: The Lost Archives of Jimi Hendrix."
