From the Publisher"The New Journalism began on the Lower East Side in the mid-sixties when poets and fiction writers became reporters for The East Village Other, mother of the Underground Press. David Henderson was one of the pioneers of the style. He combines his gifts as a poet and a reporter in 'Scuse Me While I Kiss the Sky, and the result is a rewarding and unique reading experience. It is part thriller and part lament for some tragic lives who enlivened an exciting decade."
— Ishmael Reed
"A harrowing and exhilarating story...Making sense of Hendrix's life, career, and art with such moment-to-moment intensity, one comes away convinced that we caught no more than a glimpse of Hendrix while he was here to see in the flesh..."
— Rolling Stone
"Henderson hasn't just given us Hendrix complete. He has also written a fascinating study of the development of rock."
— The Phoenix (Boston)
"The most thorough and consistently excellent biography of any rock music figure."
— San Francisco Examiner/Chronicle
"No one who wants to assemble a coherent version of Jimi's story can afford to be without this book — it is not only the best version, it is the only complete one."
— Dave Marsh, author of Born to Run
