Last year, Jimi Hendrix‘s younger brother Leon Hendrix opened up about their family life and the inspirations which led to Jimi’s music career.


Leon Hendrix’s book ‘Jimi Hendrix: A Brother’s Story’ was published in 2012. He also plays in the Leon Hendrix Band, who have released two albums.


Speaking to The Guardian, Leon says that Jimi “looked after” him, explaining that he “never missed a meal”. He continued, “he looked out for me like an elder-brother-father; he made me what you English call ‘tea’ and made sure I was okay. And sometimes, we used to sneak off to Mom’s for dinner.”


Leon says the music simply came from inspiration, explaining, “as in ‘spirit’, as in ‘in-spirit-ation’. It’s in the wind. I was there when Jimi was a boy, and he’d play with a broom, his first guitar. And Pa would come home and see the straw and **** from the broom on the floor, because Jimi’d been doing acrobatics with his his broom-guitar, and Jimi’d get a whuppin’.”
