Publisher Description

A compelling portrait of rock's greatest guitarist at the moment of his ascendance, Stone Free is the first audiobook to focus exclusively on the happiest and most productive period of Jimi Hendrix's life.

As it begins in the fall of 1966, he's an under-sung, under-accomplished sideman struggling to survive in New York City. Nine months later, he's the toast of Swinging London, a fashion icon, and the brightest star to step off the stage at the Monterey International Pop Festival. This momentum-building, day-by-day account of this extraordinary transformation offers new details into Jimi's personality, relationships, songwriting, guitar innovations, studio sessions, and record releases. It explores the social changes sweeping the U.K., Hendrix's role in the dawning of "flower power," and the prejudice he faced while fronting the Jimi Hendrix Experience.

In addition to featuring the voices of Jimi, his bandmates, and other eyewitnesses, Stone Free draws extensively from contemporary accounts published in English and foreign-language newspapers and music magazines. This celebratory account is a must-listen for Hendrix fans.
