I love this book We get to see an inside look into his life from one of his reporter friends in LA He talks about how he writes songs, using tones and colors rather than themes It s amazing.I decided only to read Part 1 and 2 The last part of the book is all about what happened with his estate something I m not at all interested It s amazing to me that he died at the same age I m at now, and to think of how much he accomplished I hope to one day master the guitar as well as he did but say maybe double his age 52 , hahaha. I did enjoy this book, I loved how it was written by a close friend of jimi s she was able to give us such great insight to the talented kind and beautiful person he really was , I learnt a lot of things about him I had no idea of , very well written , I wasn t keen on the chapters regarding the estate and his family fighting over his money that was quite sad and I don t think necessary but other than that I loved it
