A London apartment on the top floor of 23 Brook Street where Jimi Hendrix moved in 1968 has been temporarily opened to the public as part of an exhibition marking the 40th anniversary of his death.

AP - A London apartment that Jimi Hendrix lived in is opening to the public as part of an exhibition marking the 40th anniversary of his death.

Hendrix moved into the top floor of 23 Brook Street with his English girlfriend, Kathy Etchingham, in 1968, two years after he came to London as a young, ambitious guitarist. The apartment was his home for long periods of time while he played gigs in venues across the capital.

For 12 days starting Thursday, visitors can tour the rooms in which Hendrix lived, wrote and entertained his friends. Organizers of the exhibition say all tickets to the apartment tours have sold out in advance.
