Aftersome careful reconstruction and restoration, Jimi Hendrix’s London home, the third floor flat in 23 Brook Street, will open permanently this February as part of an exhibition dedicated to the music legend. Hendrix lived at the flat from 1968-69 with girlfriend Kathy Etchingham, and was the scene of numerous jam sessions, musician visits and parties. As well as the living spaces, the exhibition will feature rarely-seen photographs of Hendrix, his record collection and his Epiphone FT79 acoustic guitar, which he used for all the music he composed on these shores. An state-of-the-art interactive studio will also open in the building, linking the Hendrix flat with Handel House, the neighbouring building that was home to famed composer George Frideric Handel, enabling you can explore the lives of two music icons who lived side by side, 240 years apart.
