Editorial Reviews

Geoffrey Giuliano writes and presents Castles Made of Sand, a fast-paced overview of the life and accomplishments of the legendary Jimi Hendrix, whose rough childhood served merely as the prelude to a storied musical career, the impact of which is still resounding today.

Giuliano has a unique and fast-paced style of narration, which he applies largely to a summation of the musician’s early years, after which much of this intriguing and informative musical audiobiography is devoted to airing interview clips with friends and family members including father Al Hendrix, contemporary Paul McCartney, and even rare snippets from interviews with Hendrix himself.

Publisher's Summary

Born into a working class family in Seattle, Jimi Hendrix had a tough time growing up. Eventually, however, he fell in love with the guitar, and the rest is music history. This title features never-before-heard interviews with Jimi Hendrix; Noel Redding; Jimi's family, including his father Al Hendrix; Jack Bruce, Denny Laine; and Paul McCartney.
