About Leon Morris Hendrix

From Wikipedia (English):

Leon Hendrix (born January 13, 1948) is the brother of late American rock guitarist/singer and icon Jimi Hendrix. He is an artist, songwriter and guitarist who began playing the guitar later in life and has released several albums. He is best known for his original artwork.

Hendrix suffered from drug addiction and he spent time in prison for minor offenses. After seeking drug treatment, Hendrix has been clean for over twelve years and lives with his girlfriend who is a doctor in Los Angeles, California.

Hendrix was employed for many years as an expert draftsman by Boeing.

In recent years the father of six and grandfather of four has been attempting to make a living from music and art. The Leon Hendrix Band released one album in 2006, Keeper of the Flame, as well as the earlier Seattle Rain. Hendrix has also toured with The Magic Carpet Ride performing large venue concerts. Hendrix's wish is to keep his brother Jimi's legacy alive by dedicating his songs to Jimi when he performs.

In 2012, Hendrix published an intimate biography of his brother titled Jimi Hendrix: A Brother's Story. It was co-written by Adam Mitchell and published by St. Martin's Press.
