JIMI HENDRIX-THE TRUE STORY
The true story of Jimi Hendrix by his brother Leon Hendrix
Enlarge

Leon Hendrix is the younger brother of Jimi Hendrix, who was arguably the greatest rock guitarist ever to live and over Jimi’s hugely successful, yet short career, he managed to shape the future of rock guitar playing probably more than anyone.

Throughout Jimi’s career, Leon was Jimi’s companion and for the first time in the UK, he is to embark upon a theatre tour which will combine Leon performing, as part of an astounding band who will play all Jimi’s hits and more, as well as recalling his first-hand experiences when sharing in the recording, touring,  Woodstock the legendary festival and private life of a true rock legend.

Leon’s career has itself been a chequered one! He was placed in an orphanage when his mother died and his father proved unable to cope, on leaving it, he formed a band with his older brother. After the untimely demise of Jimi, he experienced a difficult period including drug & alcohol addiction and a spell in prison before becoming a successful musician in his own right.

But it is his recollections of life with his remarkable older brother that will hold the audience spellbound. Not only will Leon talk openly about his life with Jimi, but in addition the audience will be given the chance to pose questions directly to Leon in a Q & A session.

Add to the above the opportunity for a ‘meet & greet’ with Leon after the show or have a ‘selfie’ with him and you have all the ingredients to make an already extraordinary evening for any lover of great rock guitar music even more spectacular being part of the Jimi Hendrix heritage.
