Room full of Mirrors is the definitive biography of rock 'n' roll's greatest guitarist. Jimi Hendrix lived an outrageous life, from his troubled childhood in Seattle's projects to tragically early death just one year after headlining Woodstock. This landmark book, meticulously researched and based on more than 300 interviews with those who knew him best, more than half of whom have never spoken about him before, is full of the infamous tales of sex, drugs, and excess. But it also reveals a man who struggled to accept his role as an idol and who privately craved the kind of normal family life he never had. Charles R. Cross has created a supremely moving and revealing portrait of the man behind the myth.
