Excerpts from the Paper

The beginning:
Hendrix: His Life and Death
Introduction
It is difficult to discuss
Jimi
Hendrix. The difficulty is, interestingly, linked not to insufficient information; instead, the difficulty is linked to a multitude of information: there is simply so much written on
Jimi
Hendrix, his music, life and death, that it is very easy to fall into mythology when searching for fact. For this reason, it is helpful to address
Jimi
Hendrix at a very primary level. This primary level of analysis should not be confused with superficial analysis. This primary level will still explore significant aspects of his life and death, but avoid distracting side topics that may take the focus off Hendrix (
ie
. the Vietnam War). This essay will therefore discuss
Jimi
Hendrix...
The end:
.....master – and leader – of his craft. Hendrix remains an important figure in the history of rock – and for good reasons. The only hesitation this paper offers is that these reasons must be based on facts, rather than myth.
