With 2010 marking the 40th anniversary of Jimi Hendrix’s death, fans in the UK will be able to get a intimate glimpse of his life in swinging London as part of the Hendrix In Britain exhibit at the Handel House Museum. The exhibit, which opened yesterday and runs through November 7, features a number of rare Hendrix items, including his clothes, hand-written lyrics, posters and one of his ‘Flying V’ guitars. As an added bonus fans will be able to tour the two-floor apartment that Hendrix lived in at 23 Brook Street from September 15-26, which was coincidentally the same house that composer George Frideric Handel lived and worked in for over thirty years.
