The Stories Behind Every Song Summary

The Stories Behind Every Song: Jimi Hendrix - Voodoo Chile by David Stubbs

Jimi Hendrix was very probably the greatest solo rock artist of all time. More than Dylan, Bowie, Prince or any of his guitar contemporaries such as Eric Clapton, he was the supreme physical and musical emblem of rock music. If anyone personified the genre in its purest, most potent and inflammatory form, it was Hendrix. Although he was an immense guitarist, Hendrix also connected with audiences as a performer and a songwriter. Songs like Voodoo Chile and Third Stone From The Sun were the brilliant products of a dazed yet expanded consciousness, full of casual epithets which illuminated the era; May you never hear surf music again.. ...'Scuse me while I kiss the sky... Gonna raise my freak flag high.... In The Stories Behind Every Song music journalist and author and David Stubbs provides the definitive companion to Hendrix's recorded output, from the early years, including Hey Joe and Purple Haze through to his unfinished final album First Rays Of The New Rising Sun.

About David Stubbs

David Stubbs started working life as a staff writer for Melody Maker. He has since diversified into writing on film, TV and sport, contributing to The Guardian and When Saturday Comes. In recent years he has written for Uncut, The Times, The Guardian, NME, GQ, Spin and Arena. His first and last musical love, however, remains Jimi Hendrix - a left-hander like himself and, unlike himself, a musical genius. David currently lives in Blackheath, London.
