First published in 1978, David Henderson’s epic account of Jimi Hendrix became the definitive, most beloved biography of the greatest rock and roll guitarist of the 1960s. Newly revised, updated, and expanded, ‘SCUSE ME WHILE I TOUCH THE SKY sheds new light on Hendrix’s life, romances, mysterious death, and music through information that was difficult to obtain in the years following his demise: complete interviews with Hendrix himself, more of his personal writings than ever before, and details from information originally reluctant to come forward. Selected Discography, Index. Illus., black-and-white photographs. 448p.

(Book). Armed with a macro lens, an incredible eye for detail, and a truly groundbreaking vision, Lisa Johnson's guitar art is taking the world of fine art photography on a rock-and-roll ride. A compilation of Johnson's stunningly personal and intimate portraits, 108 Rock Star Guitars features the guitars of rock-and-roll luminaries, including Les Paul, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Nancy Wilson, Bonnie Raitt, Chrissie Hynde, and many others. Far from still life, Johnson's work conjures the abstract yet also possesses a very sensual and ethereal feel that intentionally illustrates intimate wear-and-tear details. Her unique presentation personifies and captures a musician's true spirit in these musical extensions of the artist's body. This ultra-deluxe, coffee-table photo book reveals through Johnson's signature macrophotography style the etchings, totems, and personal touches of each featured guitar. It is a rare perspective that few people outside of the musicians' stage crew have seen. Alongside these images, Johnson provides personal anecdotes describing her 17-year journey to photograph these iconic instruments, documenting her travels from the backstage hallways of some the world's most famous concert venues to the artists' private homes. 108 Rock Star Guitars is a music and fine-art photography aficionado's private backstage pass to witness up-close these six-stringed works of art.
