jimi hendrix

WAMC's Ian Pickus speaks with leading Jimi Hendrix scholar Steven Roby, who has uncovered and collected several forgotten or lost interviews the riotous guitarist gave during his too-short heyday in his new book, Hendrix on Hendrix: Interviews and Encounters with Jimi Hendrix, published by Chicago Review Press.

Several themes that defined Hendrix’s life emerge in its pages: isolation, his tough childhood, an always shifting biographical timeline, diffidence, and often a good sense of humor.
