Jimi Hendrix is specifically written to meet the needs of adolescents and adults who are reluctant readers. The photographs, maps, and illustrations reflect the text, making the words easy to decode. This high-interest, low-vocabulary biography is ideal for English as a Second Language (ESL) or adult basic education students. Jimi Hendrix, a rock and roll legend, overdosed on pills and alcohol at the age of 27. He grew up in a home with alcoholic parents and a father who beat him, finding refuge at times with his Canadian and American grandmothers. He discovered his passion for the guitar at the age of 15. Having little money, Jimi taught himself to play and developed a unique style that distinguished him from all other guitar players of his time. His musical genius took him to England, where he met rock and roll greats such as The Beatles and the Rolling Stones. Jimi worked and played hard, touring endlessly, and lives on as the greatest guitar player ever. Lexile level: 500L
