When classical meets rock music

Two musical geniuses, two different genres.

Handel & Hendrix in London opened permanently to the public on 10 February. I visited Jimi Hendrix's flat in 23 Brook Street on a Friday evening, Hendrix lived there with his girlfriend Kathy Etchingham in 1968-1968. 

The living room is restored to how it would have been at the time Jimi lived there.

Etchingham led the campaign to secure Jimi a historic Blue Plaque outside number 22, it was the first ever placed for a rock musician.

When I stepped into Handel's house, 25 Brook Street, I entered a different era- what a contrast. Handel lived in this house in the 18th century and looking outside and seeing the hustle and bustle of London, I wondered how it would be back then.
