Jimi Hendrix's Former Home Being Turned Into Museum
Posted by Joseph Lee on 12.30.2013

NME reports that Jimi Hendrix's former home in London is set to be turned into a museum thanks to a £1.2 million ($1,978,560) grant given to The Heritage Lottery Fund. Hendrix lived in the attic of the Georgian townhouse from the summer of 1968 with his girlfriend Kathy Etchingham. The property, located on 23 Brook Street, cost £30 a week, which Hendrix called "the only home he ever had".

Hendrix fans have wanted to see the property for years. Some have been allowed in over the years but there were no pieces of his life to look at. The museum will contain those pieces which include historically accurate furnishings, along with examples from his life, work and legacy as a musician.

For the last thirteen years, it was used by the staff of the Handel House Museum, who used it as their offices. Composer George Frideric Handel lived at #25 but died in the mid-18th century. Handel House opened in 2001 and cut off Hendrix's former home. A blue plaque was put in place in 1952 while another recognizing Hendrix was put up in 1997. When Hendrix learned that Handel lived next door, he looked for music that Handel wrote while living there, including Water Music and The Messiah.

The new museum will also have a learning program and education space about the baroque and rock genres.
