Discovering Hendrix at Handel & Hendrix in London

Post 35: A straight forward report

Last week The Times tweeted it’s Jimi Hendrix obituary from 1970. They were marking the anniversary of the release of his first album on 12 May 1967. It was very interesting reading the obituary, concise, clear and accurate. It didn’t go over the top, there perhaps wasn’t as much emotion as some people might have wanted (come on it is The Times) but nonetheless I think it does accept that Hendrix was very important.  What do you think? Check it out here.

About Sarah Bardwell

Handel & Hendrix in London Trustee and leading the team that is reinstating, in the adjoining building, Jimi Hendrix's London flat to open to the public. Quirky twist of chance meant that baroque legend Handel lived at 25 Brook Street in the 18th century and that rock legend Hendrix lived next door in the 1960s.
