it was amazing
bookshelves: love-the-illustrations, rock-star
Read in January, 2011

I spent a lot of hours listening to Jimi Hendrix as a teenager. Javaka Steptoe's illustrations are hypnotic. They capture Hendrix's music and the emotions.
The text was suitable. I was touched by the note by the author. He's an addictions counselor and realizes what a loss Hendrix's death was.
