Jimi Hendrix (1942-1970) was just twenty-seven when he died, leaving him little opportunity to compose an orthodox autobiography; but he was an inveterate scribbler. From those hotel stationary and napkin jottings, his friends Alan Douglas and Peter Neal stitched together a life, using Hendrix interviews and lyrics to smooth it into a memoir as inspired and idiosyncratic as the guitarist himself. In Starting at Zero, the legendary performer offers reflections on his mixed race family, his adversarial relationship with school, his growing interest in music, and his conflicted feelings about fame. The most complete record we have of a legendary enigma.
