Originally released almost three years ago, the music and legacy discussed in Jimi Hendrix: The Guitar Hero will now be made available in a director’s cut. Directed by Jon Brewer, this new version has been expanded from a single DVD to a double disc set, which will feature loads of unreleased archive footage, over five hours of never seen/heard extended interviews, plus 8mm silent film footage made by Henry Diltz of Hendrix on the failed 1967 tour with The Monkees, and much more. The Guitar Hero features interviews with Dave Mason, Eric Clapton, Mick Taylor, Eric Burdon, Micky Dolenz, Paul Rodgers, Ginger Baker, Bev Bevan, Crosby, Stills and Nash, Lemmy Kilmister, and many more. The entire project was narrated by Slash.
Jimi Hendrix: The Guitar Hero will be rereleased as a double DVD and Blu-Ray disc on June 10th.
