Discovering Hendrix at Handel & Hendrix in London

Post 43: It’s a Hendrix world

Send some love with a Hendrix stamp

Send some love with a Hendrix stamp

The weekend didn’t go by without a little Hendrix action in my Sunday paper. He was mentioned both in an editorial piece about the passing of Bobby Womack and an article about the studios where momentous music was recorded. Links to both articles here.

I also enjoyed listening to a very jolly programme from 2004 about Fender guitars – with some Hendrix highlights and some great contributions from Hendrix aficionados.

Some wonderful American supporters very kindly gave me a sheet of US stamps featuring Hendrix. Individually noteworthy but presented in a sheet of 16 stamps that looks like a 12 inch single, really lovely. Imagine my delight to discover that my Uncle has also sent me a similar sheet of stamps. I am guessing they don’t show up on envelopes in the post very often!

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.
