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.
