Wild Thing: The Short, Spellbinding Life of Jimi Hendrix by Philip Norman

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame describes Jimi Hendrix as “the greatest instrumentalist in the history of rock music,” and he’s often celebrated as the greatest rock guitarist of all time. To read Wild Thing is to step back in time to when Hendrix was coming onto the music scene and when he was at the top of his game. Philip Norman, the acclaimed biographer of musicians such as John Lennon, Mick Jagger, and Eric Clapton, delivers an electric story of Hendrix’s sound—the beats he grew up with, the music he created, and the legacy he left after his tragic death in 1970. —Al Woodworth
