What do Hendrix and Handel have in common?

Jimi Hendrix lived at #23 (the white house) and Handel lived at #25 (next door).

Apart from that, nothing…


Actually, according to this article, Hendrix chose the apartment (at least partly) due to the fact that Handle lived next-door… Note that the article also mentions the expensive bit of kit in the flat…

    There are stories telling that J. Hendrix listened to the Messiah by G. F. Händel played on a BeoGram 1000.

  2. Peter the biker says:

    Or if the Kronos Quartet played it on strings.
    They did it. (Album: “Released 1985 – 1995”)

    ‘It would be cooler if Handel listened to Purple Haze on a Beolit 39… :-)’

    Voodoo ;-))
