Guitarist Jimi Hendrix's items on exhibit in his former London home
LONDON -- Clothing, mementoes and handwritten lyrics belonging to Jimi Hendrix are going on display at his former London home to mark the 40th anniversary of his death.
The guitarist lived during the late 1960s in an apartment in the Mayfair area of London. He died in the city on Sept. 18, 1970.
Composer George Frederic Handel lived next door in the 18th century, and Hendrix's former home is now part of the Handel House Museum.
The museum is holding an exhibition devoted to Hendrix's London years. It gave photographers a preview this week. The exhibition opens Aug. 25 and runs to Nov. 7. For 12 days in September visitors will also be able to tour the rooms where Hendrix lived, which are not usually open to the public.
