Jimi Hendrix's London Apartment To Be Open To The Public

(Classic Rock) The London flat where Jimi Hendrix lived will open its doors to visitors on a permanent basis, starting in February. The living room of 23 Brook Street has been restored to the way it was when the guitar icon lived there between 1968 and 1969. The 2.4m refurbishment also includes an exhibition and exploration display.

Hendrix's flat is connected to 25 Brook Street, where composer George Frederick Handel lived 240 years earlier. The result of both homes being open to visitors is described as "a genuinely unique new heritage site."

Handel And Hendrix In London creators say: "When Hendrix moved in on July 4, 1968, he was entering a period of his life when his musical foundations were no longer stable. He was considering the next phase of his career, with release of the Electric Ladyland LP due later that summer." Read more here.
