A rockumentary profile of a true music original. Offstage he was withdrawn, almost shy. Onstage he strapped on his kiss-the-sky Stratocaster and shattered all notions of how a guitar could be played. This definitive documentary was the first authorised effort to detail Hendrix's celebrated life and career. Hendrix's family and close friends are joined by such rock legends as Eric Clapton, Mick Jagger, Pete Townshend and Little Richard, each presenting their own memories of the greatest rock guitarist of all time. For the first time, this look at Jimi Hendrix and his legacy includes the sonic richness of a soundtrack prepared by original Hendrix engineer Eddie Kramer plus over 87 minutes of rockin' extras. Re-experience electrifying, full-length concert performances from the Monterey, Woodstock and Isle of Wight Festivals, London's Marquee Club and the Fillmore East. From a blazing 'Purple Haze' to a driving 'Machine Gun' to a flamboyant 'Wild Thing' to a soulful 'Hear My Train A 'Comin', Jimi Hendrix pulls out all the stops.
