Think of Jimi Hendrix and most people conjure up a larger-than-life, almost other-worldly image, a man who was destined to be a star; a man who set fire to guitars, women's hearts, and the status quo; a man who strutted across stages with the plumage of a peacock. In this illuminating, groundbreaking, uniquely in-depth account of Jimi Hendrix's life, bestselling author and music journalist Charles R. Cross paints a far deeper, more compelling portrait of this musical genius. Beyond his legendary sex appeal, his drug use, his onstage presence, and his backstage magnetism, Room Full of Mirrors captures the whole man, from birth to death, a view of Hendrix unlike any revealed before. Drawing on never-before-seen documents and private letters, "Room full of mirrors" unlocks the vast mystery of one of rock's most enduring legends, a man who, in twenty-seven short years, managed to rise from poverty, set the world aflame, and inadvertently extinguish his own burning talent.
