Yes, as you can see, I am on tour with Hendrix. I interviewed author Gary Golio about Hendrix's historic significance and the creative process while still a child. You can read all about it on Thursday.
Jimi Hendrix was barely on my radar when I was young, but I've become very interested in him as a result of my experience reading this book and working on this blog tour. I'll be following the whole tour.
