Post 81: Progress, protection and perfume
So Jimi Hendrix’s bedroom in Brook Street has now had many lives; bedroom, office, Christmas party venue, lunch room, meeting room and its current incarnation as the site office. Protective material has been put over the floors and instead of rugs and hangings, the walls are adorned with Health and Safety notices, programmes of work and various instructions. However my favourite area is hard hat corner.
The particularly jolly and smiley scaffolders have, for the moment, finished and left the site and the serious builders have been setting about their work with gusto. I wonder if they all appreciate that Hendrix’s recording of “All along with Watchtower” is currently the music for Chanel’s latest advert for their fragrance for men, Bleu. I assume Chanel think that as well as hip and trendy Hendrix now conjures up high end!
