'Nobody Cages Me' Book Highlights The Remarkable Journey Of JIMI HENDRIX

September 1, 2010

Frequent discussions on who's the greatest guitarist of all time always bring the name Jimi Hendrix at the forefront. Considered as the greatest electric guitarist in the history of rock music by other musicians and commentators in the industry, he is often compared to world renowned artists. But who really is Jimi Hendrix? In his new book, "Nobody Cages Me", author Corey Washington reveals more about this legendary icon to give readers a concrete outline of Hendrix's life as a famous artist.

Jimi Hendrix is primarily looked at as a rock musician, which is fine, but he is much more. From his seminal beginnings on the R&B chitlin' circuit to his whirlwind international fame, he took from all sources musically. The consummate musician, Jimi was looking for any and every opportunity to jam with like-minded musicians, who did not want to be caged by musical categories. Almost by chance, Jimi was involved in two pioneering performances that launched two genres that would dominate the African-American music scene for multiple decades (1970s - present). These genres are P-Funk and Hip-Hop. Told from the perspective of a young African-American male, who had to discover Hendrix on his own, "Nobody Cages Me" is not a Hendrix's biographical account, but a look at his works as an artist, producer, and pioneer. This book takes a step further by asserting that Hendrix was a pivotal player in two of the most dominant genres of African-American music after his death.

Through "Nobody Cages Me", readers will learn more about Hendrix while confirming the visionary man in him who transcend beyond the borders of rock, soul, blues, and jazz.
