Hendrix Pad Opens To Public

The address that Jimi Hendrix called home in London at the time of his death has been open to visitors, but the actual living space he used in the building has been off limits.  The apartment at 23 Brook Street adjoins one that classical composer George Handel lived in during the 1700's that has been operated as the Handel House Museum.  The top floor apartment Hendrix and his girlfriend rented  for about $40 a week has been used as administrative offices by the museum staff. During a 12 day stretch around the 40th anniversary of the guitar great's September 18 death the staff will vacate the top floor so visitors can roam through it.  The museum will add several pieces of Hendrix memorabilia for Hendrix In Britain, a special exhibit that runs August 25 - November 7.  The flat Hendrix lived in during the last year of his life will be open from September 15 - 26.
