Jimi Hendrix London Flat

If ever there was a god on Earth, it was Jimi Hendrix. At least a demigod. The legendary guitarist, the man who unnerved Eric Clapton to his core with his impossible prowess, the iconoclast who famously engulfed his shattered Stratocaster in flames at Woodstock and in doing so created one of the most famous moments in American musical – and cultural – history, lived a relatively short but incredible life. Now, you can experience the quiet quarters of his London flat, where the artist lived and worked from 1968 to 1969.

The flat on the upper floors of 23 Brook Street, London, England, was purchased by Hendrix in July of 1968 before heading back to the US to tour. When he returned in January of the following year, he decorated the apartment extensively, adorning it in his vibrant taste. In the months that ensued, Jimi held a series of photoshoots and interviews at the flat, where he lived with his girlfriend Kathy Etchingham, holding two famous concerts at Royal Albert Hall during that time. In March, he voyaged back to the United States, never to return to Brook Street. The building was used as an office space for years until it was acquired by the Handel House Trust, which restored the flat to its original glory. Today, it’s open to the public, so that you can tour the apartment where a musical giant once dwelled.
