Jimi Hendrix fans have been widely anticipating the release of the late rocker's upcoming PBS documentary, Jimi Hendrix: Hear My Train A Comin', and now, a special trailer has been released to tease what can be expected.
The two-minute long video, available at USAToday.com, shows a variety of Hendrix's famous live concert moments as some of rock's most notable discuss the guitarist's skills as both a musician and a showman.
Outlining Hendrix's entire life, from his early days as a young boy living in Seattle, to his time as a paratrooper with the U.S. Army, to his huge success as one of the most iconic Rock and Roll guitarists of all-time, the two-hour documentary will premiere this fall as a part of PBS's 'American Masters' series.
The film, directed by Bob Smeaton, is set to feature exclusive interviews with fellow-rock stars such as Paul McCartney, Mitch Mitchell, Steve Winwood, Eddie Kramer, Billy Gibbons, Noel Redding, Dave Mason, Billy Cox and more, as well as some of Hendrix's closest friends like Linda Keith, Faye Pridgeon and Colette Mimram.
Jimi Hendrix: Hear My Train A Comin' will debut on November 5 on PBS, and will also be released on DVD/Blu-ray on the same day complete with expanded, rare footage.
