"Historic house museums serve as a way to time travel to the past and see firsthand how our predecessors lived—and, in the case of the former homes of famous musicians, chances are, some of your favorite songs may have been written under that very roof."

Great to be featured in this round up of musicians' former homes around the globe by House Beautiful alongside the likes of Louis Armstrong House Museum, Mozarthaus Vienna, Bob Marley Museum & Beethoven-Haus Bonn.

Which house is your favorite?

Jimi Hendrix & George Frederic Handel are music icons separated by the ages, but this Brook Street address in #London ties together their uncanny synchronicities. Special to the #3Dtour of Handel & Hendrix in London, sit in the room where Hendrix's friends, including George Harrison of the Beatles, would hold jam sessions, listen to music and swap stories.

Rotosound Music Strings

Rotosound Music Strings

To commemorate Jimi Hendrix’s birthday today we’ve donated a set of #RotosoundStrings supplied to #JimiHendrix in 1967 to the Handel & Hendrix in London museum. They will be on display alongside other possessions and period-correct items in the flat where Jimi lived from 1968-69.

We recently discovered this pack of #Supertone strings in our archives alongside a few photos of Jimi taken with Rotosound’s Alan Marcuson.

Our founder, James How, recalled that “Jimi Hendrix was not pleased with the sounds he would get when he bit his strings, so I developed a gauge that he thought ‘tasted’ right.”

Nabihah Iqbal tries out the new sound system in the Hendrix Flat and chooses some of her favourite albums from Jimi's record collection.

We've been busy behind the scenes recently at Handel & Hendrix in London, recreating the exact home audio setup that Jimi Hendrix had when he lived at 23 Brook Street in London.

This collaboration with Bang & Olufsen, Lowther Loudspeakers & LEAK has brought back the exact listening experience Jimi Hendrix had in his Mayfair flat in 1969.

We asked musician, DJ and huge Hendrix fan Nabihah Iqbal to come and test it out, and tell us about her favourite LPs in Hendrix's record collection.

Handel: where to start with his music

"By now Handel had moved into the new house on Brook Street that would be his home for the rest of his life; it is open today as a museum, its name – Handel & Hendrix in London – reflecting the fact that two centuries later another celebrated musician would move in next door."
Great article from The Guardian.

Hallelujah! This week, the composer whose music illuminated Georgian London, and who refined the art of bringing emotion alive in works that still resonate for us today

About us

In a single street in London, separated by a wall, are the homes of two of history’s most significant musical artists: George Frideric Handel & Jimi Hendrix.

25 Brook Street is the house that belonged to Handel and the place where he composed some of the world’s most enduring Baroque music such as Zadok the Priest, Music for the Royal Fireworks and Messiah. Visit the rooms where he ate, slept, rehearsed and entertained in a modest mid-terraced house for the last 36 years of his life and understand the man behind these incredible works.

The top floor of 23 Brook Street is the flat where Jimi Hendrix lived with his girlfriend, record player and guitar from 1968-69. Step back in time to 60s London and visit the room where he slept, partied, worked and relaxed. Come and see Hendrix’s only recognized home in the world.

See them together under one roof at Handel & Hendrix in London. Find out more - https://handelhendrix.org/

Here is my video of a famous Handel piece varied by the Austrian composer Ferdinand Rebay. Not by Jimi Hendrix but at least on a guitar. Sometimes I wonder what would have happend if both would have listened to each other...
Wishing everyone at Handel & Hendrix in London and all Paul McCartney fans Happy Easter wishes. Have a great holiday and stay safe...

Wishing everyone at Handel and Hendrix Museum a very Merry Christmas and we would like to share just some of our latest exciting heritage news. Our 1953 Bristol KSW 5G ECW open top double decker WNO 481 more famously known as 1972 Wings Tour Bus will be restored in 2021 to Paul McCartney & Wings layout and livery. Delighted to receive this accolade recently, "Many of us have a big collection of Beatles memorabilia... but only one fan in the whole world has a double-decker bus with a Beatles connection" and to report that what has been called "The world's biggest Beatles collectible" Looking forward to bringing WNO 481 to Handel and Hendrix in the not too distant future once she is restored and back to her beautiful best. She is scheduled to make her first public appearance in 25 years at NEC Classic Motor Show where we will be celebrating the greatest music in the world ever; Lennon-McCartney, Beatles and Wings songs. Interested in seeing this legend of rock and road? Let us know in the comments below. We are very proud that the bus features on the front cover of the latest edition of the FBHVC Magazine and in a 6 page article inside. https://www.facebook.com/1972wingstourbus/posts/399013508203539
The London Handel Festival's 'Messiah - Reimagined' is available to view FREE on YouTube. Laurence Cummings directs four stunning soloists, the specialist baroque London Handel Orchestra and 400 singers from 16 countries across 5 continents - all from St George's, Hanover Square in the heart of London's Mayfair- Handel's own parish church. Intrigued? Watch it here (we've had some 190k viewers already on Facebook from all around the world). I think Mr Handel would be very proud! 🙂
Me and Jimi at the Camden Round House, Feb 1967. (only 40 people in the Audience. I'm the good looking one aged 16 with the white arrow pointing at me. I was lucky enough to see Jimi twice that year, the other venue was the Marque in Wardour St in late summer of 67 and it was packed to the roof🎸
We need to go here Christine Dobbo Mabbutt Jo Taylor for next trip. They are next door. X
