Jimi Hendrix moved to Brook street in 1968. Here, in the only place he said he felt truly at home, Hendrix entertained, inspired and collaborated with other icons of British 60s rock music.
As part of a new exhibition about Jimi Hendrix’s music and influence, the museum hopes to source people’s memories and personal photographs of times they experienced Jimi at a gig, in a club or just out and about. The memories and images will be captured on a dedicated webpage and a selection will be included in an exciting new documentary film played in the exhibition. The museum wants to create a film that truly evokes the world Hendrix lived in, so snaps of fans at gigs are as welcome as photographs of the legendary guitarist himself.
Claire Davies, Deputy Director of Handel & Hendrix in London said: “Were you at Woodstock or the Isle of Wight? Did you see Jimi in a club in Newcastle or Bristol or Worthing, among others? Alternatively, did he smile at you in the street or did you sell him some clothes or furniture? We hope Hendrix fans around the world will want to see their memories, photographs and even film included in this new exhibition. It’s time to get up into the attic and dig out those photograph albums and cine film from the 1960s, reminisce and then go to our website to tell us what you can share!”
