William Saunders traces Jimi Hendrix's rise to success and ultimate death in England. Hendrix, unable to gain any kind of foothold in America, flew to the UK under the wing of ex-Animals bassist Chas Chandler, and in just a short year rose from anonymity to becoming one of the most influential guitar players in the world.

England embraced Jimi, and in turn the Seattle-born musician found a home there. The book describes his first residence at the Hyde Park Towers, the various clubs he performed in, and other locations of importance. The author also talks about how Jimi found Mitch Mitchell and Noel Redding, the drummer and bass player respectively in what would become The Jimi Hendrix Experience, as well as the guitarist's interaction with Cream, Little Richard, and other musicians residing in or touring in the UK.

This is a fun book, and though much of the material can be found elsewhere, it's a charming read and worth the time.
