Years ago I was disappointed to discover that the Mayfair London townhouse where Jimi Hendrix lived in 1968 was being used as office space. Now it’s a relief to find that it will finally be converted into a true Hendrix museum thanks to a grant from the UK’s Heritage Lottery Fund.

The guitar virtuoso paid just £30 per week rent for his flat in the Georgian building that coincidently was located nextdoor to the 18th century home of classical composer George Handel.

Plans call for a carefully curated recreation of the apartment with period décor based a photos from Hendrix’s time there in 68 and 69.
