See Inside Jimi Hendrix’s Former Home, Which Is Now Opening To The Public

23 Brook Street in Mayfair, central London: the place Jimi Hendrix reportedly once described as “the only home I ever had”. The ‘Purple Haze’ shredder moved into the flat in summer 1968 with then-girlfriend Kathy Etchingham and it’s now become a museum commemorating him. Etchingham oversaw the project to painstakingly return the place to its 1968 state, using a £1.2m Heritage Lottery grant. Handel & Hendrix London – so-named because Baroque composer George Frideric Handel lived in the flat next door, which is also now a museum – opens tomorrow (Wednesday 10th February 2016) and looks to be worth every penny, as we shall see.
