Jimi's Brother Sheds Some Light
13 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

I'm a big music fan, and being a fan of classic rock I've always loved Jimi Hendrix. After a friend recommended it I caught this doc late one weekend. The film features several interviews with the people who knew Jimi best. Jimi's story is told from his birth to his pre-mature death and throughout anecdotes, and analysis is shared on not only Jimi's music, but his insecurities and flaws as a man.

Anchoring the documentary is Jimi's brother Leon. He tells stories of him and Jimi's upbringing and how the troubles led Jimi to find solace in his guitar. This is what really catapults "Hendrix on Hendrix" above other docs is the focus it places on Jimi's formative years. Of course ample time is given to his momentous carer, but it is the frail formative moments of his youth and how they informed his musical growth that makes this doc such an informative watch.
