Discovering the Essence of Jimi Hendrix through 'The Boy Who Kissed the Sky'

Russell IV sat down with Queue Points to discuss the inspiration behind the music in the play, the Black origins of Rock & Roll, Black rock musicians and why "The Boy Who Kissed the Sky" will inspire imagination in both children and adults.
