Rare Hendrix Experience Approaches

The building Jimi Hendrix lived in at the time of his death has been long open to visitors, but  the portion of it that housed his apartment has been off-limits to the general public.  The 23 Brook Street flat adjoins one classical composer George Handel lived in during the 1700's, a space that has long been operated as the Handel House Museum.  The top floor apartment Hendrix and his girlfriend rented  for about $40 a week serves as administrative offices for museum staff. For 12 days in September, 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 opens Wednesday (8/25) and runs through November 7.  The flat Hendrix lived in during the last year of his life will be open from September 15 - 26.  The guitarist died on September 18, 1970.  This marks the first time since his death that visitors will be allowed into the part of the building his apartment occupied.
