Hendrix: Band of Gypsys (1999)

*** (out of 4)

Pretty good and interesting documentary about Jimi Hendrix and his experimental band, Band of Gypsys. This documentary, much like the band itself, is pretty much a racial debate as to why Henrdrix took this step in his career. Many felt it was due to him wanting to try and capture a black audience, who, at the time didn't even know who he was. There are plenty of interviews with band members, current stars and even some great concert footage. I personally feel Hendrix was the greatest guitarist in history but I prefer his before and after Gypsy period.
