Jimi Hendrix museum in London

The Guardian reports that Jimi Hendrix's digs at 23 Brook Street in London will be turned into a museum:

A permanent museum is to be created in a bland office space in a London attic. They are rooms that rock music pilgrims have been pleading to get into for decades – the rooms rented in the late 1960s by Jimi Hendrix, poignantly described by him as "the only home I ever had".

The Heritage Lottery Fund will soon announce a £1.2m grant to restore the rooms to their appearance during 1968, when Hendrix paid £30 a week to share the flat with his girlfriend, Kathy Etchingham. The rooms will hold displays on his life, work and musical legacy.
