Poet and writer David Henderson was a founding member of Umbra, an influential collective of poets and writers who helped shape the Black Arts Movement. Henderson first published a biography of Jimi Hendrix in 1978, fulfilling a promise he made to Hendrix who had read an article on one of his concerts by Henderson. ''Scuse Me While I Kiss the Sky' is the newly revised, updated, and expanded edition of the earlier, definitive biography. Incorporating information that was difficult to obtain in the days after Hendrix's death, this biography contains the full story of Hendrix and the impact his death left on the music industry and the black community.
