On original publication in 1989, Crosstown Traffic was immediately hailed as the ultimate book on Hendrix and his extraordinary musical legacy. Fully updated with new material, Charles Shaar Murray's awesome examination of Hendrix's influence on the culture has, if anything, grown in stature with the intervening years. 'Mouthwatering stuff for any serious Jimi Hendrix fan . . . Murray is certainly the first writer to fully portray the ways in which Hendrix shaped the future in which we now live, from hard rock to funk to jazz. Crosstown Traffic also stands as the best layman's history of the electric guitar I've ever come across.' Dave Marsh

Review:

"'Murray goes so far inside the myth that it dissolves. What is left is a man pursuing his own destiny piece by piece, day by day.' Greil Marcus"
