Jimi Hendrix

"Kiss the Sky"

Series: American Rebels

By Edward Willett

James Marshall Hendrix was the greatest electric guitarist in the history of rock-n-roll music. By experimenting with the electronic elements of the guitar, he created a signature style that was unmistakable—one that has not been matched since his untimely passing at age twenty-eight in 1970. In JIMI HENDRIX: “KISS THE SKY,” author Edward Willett examines the life and career of this legendary pioneer of contemporary music.

". . . a very detailed and factual account . . ."

Richardson Independent School District, April 28, 2008

"Although the authors spend considerable time on the subjects' early lives and career highlights, a concluding chapter in each book helps explain their lasting appeal and fame. The pull-quotes are well chosen . . ."

The Horn Book Guide, Fall 2007

". . . good, basic introduction to Hendrix’s life and the reasons for his enduring fame."

Booklist, February 1, 2007

". . . told in a simple, straightforward way . . . The reader will be drawn in with the text, it is fascinating reading especially for music fans of that era, but others will be drawn in as well. Very interesting and informative."

Garland Independent School District, December 5, 2007

"Each of these biographies presents a fact-filled, nonjudgmental look into the life and untimely death of these cultural icons. Both extraordinary men are described fully, with the good and the bad aspects of their lives addressed in a straightforward manner. This series is excellent, well-written and full of detail, but not bogged down with minutiae . . . Young readers are certain to enjoy the stories of these famously rebellious artists."
