Jimi Hendrix's Flat



Jimi Hendrix's Flat

This was Jimi Hendrix's bohemian London flat and love pad.

Location: 23 Brook Street, London

Description: Legendary Guitar legend Jimi Hendrix lived here in 1968-70 with his girlfriend Kathy Etchingham at the peak of his short-lived fame.

Upon learning that classical composer Handel had lived at number 25 250 years beforehand, he went to a local record shop and bought some of his works including Messiah and the Water Music.

Since November 2001, the upper floors of 23 Brook Street including Hendrix's flat, have been part of the Handel House Museum.

On the fortieth anniversary of Jimi Hendrixs death, a new book explores how London loved him, lionized him, and then killed him. In September 1966, Jimmy James arrived in London from New York with $40 and a guitar stolen from the Rolling Stones. Four years later, having astonished the world with his music, he died in London under the name of Jimi Hendrix. Swinging London was the epicenter of a revolution in music and fashion, sex and drugs, but it had never seen or heard anyone like Jimi. And Jimi had never felt so at home. In Jimi Hendrix: London, journalist and poet William Saunders retraces Jimis London odyssey, weaving the story of his public and private life around the studios and clubs, hotels and apartments, back streets and concert halls where he lived and played. Drawing on interviews with some of Jimis friends, and presenting an unforgettable cast of characters (including a Whos Who of aixties rock and pop icons), Saunders explores how the city and the guitarist transformed each other. Jimi Hendrix: London, by William Saunders (Roaring Forties Press, 2010), is available online and at bookstores. Visit www.roaringfortiespress.com to get a taste of the book. (Deirdre)
