Jimi Hendrix

Jimi Hendrix

Directed by Bob Smeaton, this documentary provides an incomparable glimpse into the life of Jimi Hendrix.

Starting with Hendrix's childhood and exploring just what went on throughout his life including military service where he met Billy Cox and his career as a legend of the guitar, fans of the icon will be impressed with the lengths this documentary goes to to ensure it delivers.

Paul McCartney, Dave Mason and Hendrix's bandmates from The Experience are just some of the guests on the film that provide commentary, letting us in on some of the context behind the music of Hendrix we all know and love.

Revealing that he loved two things in life above anything else - playing guitar and females - we're also given insight into the life he led alongside the three women who were closest to him - Linda Keith, Fayne Pridgon and Colette Mimram.

Also included is previously unseen footage of his time at the Miami Pop Festival in 1968, where he performed a whole host of his hits including 'Foxey Lady' and 'Fire'.

Ending on footage from his final performance in 1970, just 12 days before his tragic death, the film should give fans everything they need and more.

At 190 minutes, it's a long watch but ultimately - a worthwhile one.

'Jimi Hendrix: Hear My Train A Comin' is out now.
